"It is quite common that general practitioners want to find basic information quickly and, for this purpose, this is the book to have." (Veterinary Times, 25 July 2011)
“This detailed account of cancer in small animals presents volumes of information.... includes an overview of cancer biology and covers diagnostic tests for cancer, treatment options, an dinformation on the majority of specific cancer types that are of concern in cats and dogs. The detail in almost every area is impressive and complete. The authors also nicely balance recommendations for what can and cannot be reasonably performed in a general practice setting. The very specific guidance presented in flow charts for making decisions about the cancers can be helpful, and is not found in other standard oncology texts.” - Doody's Reviews, February 2009
"Will help those who are not board-certified in veterinary oncology to find the information they need in a quick and easy manner. There are... well-written practical sections on subjects such as how to safely administer chemotherapy and the importance of nutritional support. In general, it is a book that allows for rapid access to some basic knowledge about cancer treatment in animals, with... an emphasis on diagnostics and setting up a plan. This is a useful, reasonably priced textbook for someone with little knowledge of veterinary oncology who desires a quick and easy guide to the many tumors of dogs and cats." - Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, June 2009
