An Unspoken Art: Profiles of Veterinary Life
Lee Gutkind; Hardcover - (July 1997) 256 pages
Ever since James Herriot captivated readers with his stories of veterinary medicine in England, we have been fascinated with the lives of veterinarians. Gutkind explores a community that most people know little about, profiling a broad range of practitioners and documenting how the profession has changed since Herriot's day. One change Gutkind documents is the gender shift in veterinary medicine: 7 of 10 students currently admitted to veterinary school are women. Moving from the rarefied atmosphere of Manhattan and the pets of the well-to-do to veterinary work in research laboratories and emergency clinics, from surgery on racehorses in well-equipped modern hospitals to surgery performed on farm and zoo animals using makeshift operating theaters, the author provides an excellent overview of the options available in today's veterinary work. By also documenting the dedication to the psychological as well as the physical well-being of their patients, Gutkind affords an appealing and well-written profile of veterinary life that is recommended for all libraries.

Kirk's Current Veterinary Therapy XIII: Small Animal Practice
John Bonagura (Editor), Ray Kersey (Editor); Hardcover 13th edition (June 1999)
This is the most recent volume in a series of texts dedicated to providing clinical information, across many fields, to the practicing veterinarian and veterinary student. There are 310 chapters written by nearly 400 contributors and divided by 20 consulting editors into 14 sections. Nearly 1300 pages are composed of text, tables, graphs, black-and-white photographs, line drawings, and comprehensive appendixes. To avoid duplication, relevant and current material from the previous (1995) edition is listed in the beginning of each section. The purpose is to provide the reader with salient features of a clinical disorder, especially the rationale for treatments. Additionally, special topics (nutrition, antimicrobial therapy, critical care, toxicology) are reviewed to provide general or broad-based knowledge. From the practitioner and educator standpointa, these are indeed worthy objectives that have been met. The target audience is the small animal practitioner and veterinary student, including those who work withe exotic/avian species. The editor is a well-known and respected internist/cardiologist who has assembled a broad group of academic, private practice, and industrial veterinary contributors. The book is divided into 14 sections, beginning with broad topics (e.g., toxicology, special care, infectious diseases), followed by sections devoted to an organ-system approach (e.g., gastrointestinal, dermatologic, musculoskeletal, genitourinary, etc.). In a final section diseases of birds/exotic pets are discussed. Appendixes on nutrition, immunization, and drug therapy are extensive and topics from the previous edition are cross-referenced in the index. Each chapter contains suggested readings along with a useful short description of each reference. Specific references to support textual comments are inconsistent; the reader needs to trust the contributors(s). A unique feature is description of evidence-based medicine in the first chapter. Unfortunately, many non-statistically oriented readers, especially practitioners, may find the material difficult to follow. This is an excellent combination of surgical and medical therapies for companion animals. The traditions and standards of previous editions are followed and continued. Comparable texts include Morgan's Handbook of Small Animal Practice, 3rd Edition (W.B. Saunders, 1997) and Birchard's Saunders Manual of Small Animal Practice (W.B. Saunders, 1994).

Patty Boge; Hardcover - 111 pages 2nd Ring edition (April 1999)
This is a guidebook for the formation and operation of a veterinary disaster response team. The book is presented as a hardcover three-ring binder, with a tabbed index page identifying each chapter. The purpose is to enable veterinarians to organize a disaster response for animals by outlining a step-by-step approach to forming a disaster team, designing a disaster response plan, responding to an actual disaster event, and integrating the veterinary response into the overall disaster response. This book is written for veterinarians and veterinary staff involved in forming and managing a veterinary disaster response team. The book is also useful as a guide and reference for non-veterinary team members and other volunteers participating in an actual disaster response. The book contains nine chapters indexed by tabbed pages identifying the subject. The first four chapters outline steps for forming a veterinary disaster response team and preparing for an actual field response, including information about the Incident Command System of the Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS), which the editor advocates as a method to assure a coordinated and effective emergency response. Subsequent chapters outline procedures for an actual field response and include detailed descriptions of responsibilities of each member of the veterinary disaster response team and operations within a standardized chain of command, as well as vital information regarding liability and other concerns associated with a disaster response. The book provides detailed checklists for each response team position which will allow untrained people to perform appropriately in an actual disaster event and includes many sample forms necessary for documentation of activities and materials in a disaster response. The book is presented in a most usable form. The three-ring notebook binding facilitates removal of individual pages for easier use by different members of the disaster team as well as addition of related materials and notes. The simple, outline-style writing and index-tabbed chapter dividers allow quick and easy access to the desired reference material. The book is very thorough and detailed in describing a step-by-step "how-to"" approach to emergency management, and the abundant sample forms are a great strength of this publication.
