Amazing understandable and Worth it! Feb. 8 2008
By FitCat - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a long time in coming. I have always had the "official" copy of the Merck Veterinarian Manual and refer to it often. But this book is really good for the layman who wants to understand what is going on with their pet, and doesn't have the time to figure out the medical jargon in the "big book." Very thorough and all inclusive. An excellent resource and must have for people who have animals.

ALL THEORY Feb. 15 2010
By David S. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a basic manual of animal health and distress. However, if you are looking for a text that not only describes the distress, provides a diagnosis, and then outlines a treatment course;this book is not for you. This book stays at the level of description and theory. This text is best used in conjunction with one that does provide treatment prescriptions.

An excellent source for information about pet health Jan. 20 2008
By Augusta D. Eller - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you want an excellent source for information on the diseases and health issues that can affect your cat, dog, horse, bird, gold fish, or reptilian pet look no further than to the Merck/Merial Manual for Pet Health. Like its counterpart for human medicine it is a source for accurate and thorough health information.

Comprehensive manual. Feb. 1 2008
By O. Vinogradova - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great at-home reference for pet owners. Gives a good deal of background and description for most of the ailments that your pets (dogs, cats, horses, birds, and some exotics are covered) will encounter in their life. No way a replacement for professional veterinary care, but a great guide to give you more details than your vet can during visits. A must have for all concerned pet parents!

Helpful, easy to read and find your topic or concern Feb. 13 2009
By FreshVet - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This text is a must have for pet owners in my opinion. You can avoid some costly vet visits when somethings just "off" with your pet. Also, you'll know when you have something more serious on your hands. It is well written and draws directly from the Merck Vet manual but in easy to read language. It would be nice if the species were broken down into separate volumes so you wouldn't be paying for a resource on animals you don't interact with.
