"The book itself is by no means exhaustive yet is incredibly useful and provides an easy-to-follow framework around which to read into more depth about each topic…. Topics are covered in sufficient depth to concisely answer a novice question and readily provides references and recommended reading at the end of each chapter for those who wish to read around a topic further. Overall, I highly recommend this book not only to veterinary technicians and nurses, but also to veterinarians involved in managing dermatology cases, as such a holistic view of approaching these patients is provided throughout." - Veterinary Dermatology, March 2020

“Small Animal Dermatology for Technicians and Nurses provides concise yet comprehensive information on everyday dermatologic problems found in small animal practice…. As a licensed veterinary technician, I enjoy the practical advice provided for the described topics and appreciate the tips and tricks that were clearly given from experienced veterinary professionals with a passion for dermatology. Although this book is targeted for veterinary technicians and nurses, I think that it will be a useful resource for all veterinary staff.” - JAVMA, Mar 15, 2020, Vol.256, No.6
