This book it’s quite good, give the main information about clinical examination of farm and companion animals. The main problem of this book isn’t caw orienteered approach; in some parts of the text anatomical remind about horse, dog and cat are too superficial to allow the user to perform a good, deep, clinical examination. One example is the particular examination of the lungs area, the book say that in caw the lungs reach the 9th, on right, and the 11th, on left side, intercostal space; but for the other species it just limiting to say the generic pulmonary limits, for example in horse say that the caudal limit of lungs is the 15th intercostal space, that’s enough for the left side but not for the right side. So, a good book but you need to integrate it!
