The Veterinary Drug Handbook: Client Information Edition helps veterinarians and pharmacists bridge the drug information gap between themselves and the people (clients; owners) who are treating their animals. Several studies have demonstrated that people receiving verbal information from health professionals retain very little of that information once they leave the premises of their health provider. The information provided in this book will supplement the actual care provided and help in the task at hand, namely to improve the health of animals. The authors have included drugs that are commonly prescribed by small animal and equine practitioners, both those that are veterinary and “human” labeled medications. The authors also provide this information in a format that can be understood by any reader. The information presented in these monographs will enable the animal caregiver to be better informed about the medication in question and to work with their veterinarian and pharmacist on the journey to positive therapeutic outcomes.

Entering the veterinary profession after leaving vet school is a challenging stage of the new vet's career. Finding the right first placement, fitting in with colleagues, adapting to the practice environment and understanding what's expected of you clinically, professionally, ethically and academically are all challenges that face the new graduate. Attrition rates and reports of dissatisfaction of new graduates are high and a matter of concern to the profession and it is recognised that extra support and guidance is needed. The New Vet's Handbook acts as a guidebook for newly qualified vets on personal and professional issues, covering employment options, interviews, mentoring, working with clients, patients and colleagues, consulting advice, dealing with euthanasia, record keeping, veterinary standards, training and CPD, career options, professional skills and avoiding pitfalls relating to social media, drugs and ethical issues. The book also covers topics specific to vets in small animal and large animal practice. Written in a supportive and lighthearted way, The New Vet's Handbook aims to provide advice based on long held experience and reduce stress at a challenging time. It will be an essential read for newly qualified vets and final year vet students.

This book is not intended as a substitute for the medical advice of veterinarians. Readers should regularly consult a veterinarian in matters relating to their dog’s health, and particularly with respect to any symptoms that may require medical attention. In writing this book, we have described the signs and symptoms that will lead you to a preliminary idea of what is happening with your dog, so you can weigh the severity of the problem. Knowing when to call your veterinarian is very important. Delays can be dangerous. At the same time, we have sought to provide guidance for the acute or emergency situations that you must handle on your own until you can get your dog to a veterinarian. Life-saving procedures such as artificial respiration and heart massage, and what to do in the event of poisonings, obstetrical problems, and other emergencies are explained step by step. But a veterinary handbook is not a substitute for professional care. Advice from a book can never be as helpful or as safe as actual medical advice. No text can replace the interview and the hands-on examination that enables a veterinarian to make a speedy and accurate diagnosis. However, the knowledge provided in this book will enable you to more effectively cooperate and better understand your interactions with your veterinarian. You’ll be more alert to the signs of health problems and better able to describe them. You’ll know more about basic care for your dog, and you’ll be prepared in an emergency.
