Review:

Despite using the word "dictionary" in the title, this book is a lot more. As well as a definition, additional facts are provided that are useful for an immediate clinical situation, or an at-home study perspective. Dozens of well drawn illustrations are included, which aid the understanding of the relevant explanation as well as breaking down the monotonous nature of normal dictionaries.
The book has been designed with day-to-day usage by veterinary nurses in mind. The cover is made from a hard-wearing, washable, flexible plastic and the size is A5, which will fit into a standard nurse uniform pocket.
It really is a little powerhouse of a book, full of practical and comprehensive information. It specifically suits veterinary nurses, whether qualified or still training, but would also be useful for receptionists and veterinary students.
Overall, this dictionary gets a "4-star" rating from me and should be part of any veterinary nurse’s arsenal of learning tools.
The Veterinary Record, June 2008

The third edition of The Veterinary Nursing, contains a broader range of terms and species than previous editions. This work is intended for those “in veterinary nursing and associated animal health professions...whether in training or in working practice as well as for those working alongside these professions. The Dictionary of Veterinary Nursing will be a useful and practical reference tool for those seeking a simple, compact and reasonably priced introduction to the field.
