Veterinary technicians will find this book to be a very good quick reference, and as such, it warrants purchase by any small animal practice. Veterinary technician students will also find it a useful resource. (JAVMA, 15 December 2014) Overall Veterinary Technician s Daily Reference Guide lives up to its title; it is a quick reference guide to dayto-day procedures and techniques used within a busy veterinary practice. I would recommend having this book on your shelf in addition to other veterinary nursing textbooks. (Veterinary Record, 26 July 2014)
