While there is room for more information in futureeditions, this text provides a solid foundation as the first of itskind to be published in the United States and will become amuch-referenced text for years to come. (HerbalGram, 1 May 2012) "Xie s Chinese Veterinary Herbology provides asuccinct and appropriate resource for veterinarians in small animalor equine practice who have an interest in expanding the servicesthey offer to clients. The author s extensive background inteaching students at all levels allows him to guide readers andprovide a rapid understanding of the process of diagnosis and acomfortable level for prescription of Chinese veterinary herbalformulas. This book will become an invaluable addition to thelibrary of every growing veterinary practice in the United States.I encourage even beginning-level students of TCVM to seriouslycontemplate investing in this reasonably priced and expansive text,which I predict will quickly become the modern Plumb'sVeterinary Drug Handbook of TCVM herbs in the veterinaryworld." (Journal of the American Veterinary MedicalAssociation, December 2010) "This volume is an excellent reference for practicingveterinarians, and a good text for continuing education courses intraditional Chinese veterinary medicine."
