Rezensionen
"This is a long overdue addition to the veterinary literature. It helps to demystify the nutritional implications of many commonly seen diseases in a practical, useful, and easily implemented manner. There is no comparable book in the field with this comprehensive information. For even experienced equine practitioners, it will be a useful addition to the library as a resource for determining dietary recommendations for clients." (Doody Enterprises 02/06/2017)
