The second edition of this formulary provides information about drugs for all types of veterinary practices. From companion dogs, cats, exotics, reptiles, birds and fish to horses, cattle, goats, sheep and pigs, the handbook provides guidance on daily practice. Each section begins with tables of dosages, followed by descriptions of commonly-prescribed medications. Each entry includes the drug name (along with US and Canadian trade names) followed by sections on: indications, adverse and common side effects, drug interactions, formulations, and other uses. There are conversion tables and formulae, and an index which allows readers to look up either the generic or brand name for rapid access to the relevant information. Included in the adverse effects section are long-term human exposure considerations, as required by US regulatory offices.

About the author (1998)

Dodie (Dorothy) Smith was born in 1896 in Northern England. Although she studied drama, she turned her talents to writing, successfully submitting a screenplay to a silent movie company and writing the script for "Autumn Crocus," which opened in 1931 to rave reviews. In 1934, Dodie's husband Alec brought home a Dalmatian puppy named Pongo, a gift that would eventually inspire her to write on of the greatest works of literature today.
