"This book should be used in every place where veterinary dentistry is considered as a challenge and as something more than just teeth scaling. (...) A very important strength of this publication is that it emphasises the links between oral and general health. The reader will be greatly impressed with all 260 pages which contain numerous appropriate pictures, drawings, and radiographs. (...) All in all, the book is an excellent educational tool and can be highly recommended to the general practitioner." - The European Journal of Companion Animal Practice, April 2009 "THE first impression of the splash-proof cover of this book is that it is another how-to-do-it recipe book, ideally protected against the splatter of the struggle to extract a stubborn fractured tooth root. The inclusion of a brief theory refresher as part of the discussion of each condition is helpful, and reminds general practitioners of the scientific basis of clinical interpretation. In general, the photographs and illustrations are of a high quality and illustrate the cases well. " Saunderssolutionsin veterinary practice: small animal dentistry October 2009
