Overall, this book is a very nice eye-opener to AFAST3,TFAST3 and GFAST subtleties with definitions andusefulness. (European Journal of Companion AnimalPractice, 1 October 2014) In the end, the book will be of more interest to thosewishing to find a pearl or two of novel information to add to theirultrasound skill sets. (Doody s, 17October 2014) A must for afterhours clinics! Veterinarians or vetstudents with an interest in ultrasound may also find this bookuseful in conjunction with other ultrasonography textbooks, as thedescriptions of principles and ultrasound findings are veryinformative. (Australian Veterinary Journal, 28October 2014) Experts in the field write articles, access is providedto a companion website of video clips, and black and whiteradiographic images pack a solid coverage highly recommended forany vet's practice and many a student technician.
