Reviews for Fundamentals of Canine Neuroanatomy and Neurophysiology
This excellent and scientifically detailed book is a much-needed introduction for first year veterinarians. (Doody's, 8 January 2015) The book is reasonably priced and will be a good addition to the libraries of both general practitioners and veterinary students. I definitely recommend this book for students or clinicians who desire more knowledge of the anatomy and pathophysiology of the canine nervous system.
