“In summary, this book is a practical gem, and should become a very useful, well-thumbed addition to the general veterinary practice library. It is mainly aimed at guiding those less experienced with dealing with chelonian patients, but will also act as a useful quick reference for those more familiar with treating these shelled patients.” (Veterinary Record, 15 March 2014)
“Finally, special mention goes to the brief but clearly illustrated and valuable guide to gender determination, helping to separate Fred from Frederica in the consult room, and making this a handy patient-side reference.” (BVZS Bulletin, 1 September 2013)
