Editorial Reviews

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The European Journal of Companion Animal Practice; Jan 06; Dr. Tiny De Keuster This book is an excellent and practical guide for the veterinary practitioner. My overall impresion is a useful and accessible guide with up to date information on canine and feline behaviour problems.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BEHAVIOUR PROBLEMS IN SMALL ANIMALS: PRACTCAL ADVICE FOR THE VETERINARY TEAM JAN BOWEN AND SARAH HEATH Reviewed by Francesca Riccomini for the Veterinary Times A book that not only raises and addresses the issues that are important when dealing with companion animal behaviour and problems relating to it in practice, but also explains in detailed, straightforward terms how to manage them, both long and short-term, has long been needed, making this text most welcome. The contents overview at the beginning, provision of a short list of first-aid measures, and the use of boxes and summary tables emphasising essential points of each condition is of particular value for anyone faced with a behavioural crisis that requires immediate advice to prevent further deterioration of a potentially serious situation, significant erosion of a pet's welfare, or the precipitate rupture of the owner-pet bond. This format also serves as a useful aide memoire for those involved in behaviour counselling or colleagues seeking reassurance when organising an referral. The degree of detail included in the handouts is an especially attractive feature of this text. This book seems to represent good value for money and should prove amost useful addition to the library of any clinic or individual with a behavioural bent. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "What a fabulous book this is. I can safely say it is the best addition I have made to my bookcase for a long time. It is a must for every library, if not an individual copy for each member of the practice. For those veterinarians who graduated before much time on the teaching programme was devoted to behavioural problems, it is an excellent book for rerference and CPD. For more recent graduates, it will be more useful for revision and updating. In addition, it should be essential reading for any verterinary nurse or veterinary receptionist. A vast amount of information is presented ina clear and concise manner. Although it contains si much informationm it is of a managable size to be carried about in a briefcase or used for day-to-day reference. An excellent further reading list and index complete the book. The list not only incudes material suitable for memebrs of a veterinary practice, but also suggests material they can recommend to their clients. In my opinion it is compulsive reading and everyone who reads it will surely leanr something from doing so." - Heather Briggs, Veterinary Times, August 2007
