Saunders Handbook of Veterinary Drugs Small and Large Animal 4th Edition PDF
The book is designed for busy practitioners and students who want to make the most efficient use of their time and locate accurate and reliable drug information quickly. The format is consistent from drug to drug, and veterinarians and their staff will quickly become familiar with the layout of each drug monograph to rapidly locate concise and accurate information about each drug.
Additions, changes in individual drug monographs, and expanded sections were provided with input and helpful suggestions from veterinarians, drug sponsors, and students or because new information has become available in the published literature. New drugs that have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), or for which there is new information about its use in the literature, have been added.
The drugs listed represent the most important medications used in companion animals and livestock. Practically every drug monograph has been updated, and more than 20 new drugs have been added. Some discontinued or outdated medications have been deleted, and readers can refer to previous editions of this book for information on those drugs.
