This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. Designed and written specifically for veterinary nurses, it focuses on the practical application of knowledge and encourages a problem-solving approach by introducing a discussion of the potential uses of drugs and exploring a variety of therapies. The text builds upon a general background of anatomy and physiology, chemical sciences and microbiology enabling the reader to understand and engage with the topic more fully.
