Book Review: Dictionary Of Veterinary Terms

Dictionary of Veterinary Terms: Vet-speak Deciphered for the Non-veterinarian
by Jennifer Coates

Do you talk to your vet and have the feeling that you are speaking totally different languages? Do you come home and can barely remember what was said, let alone having a clue what it meant? Do you feel that you need a special dictionary to figure out what is actually wrong with your dog and what the treatment is?

You are not alone!

Here is good news for you - such a dictionary does exist! Dictionary of Veterinary Terms: Vet-speak Deciphered for the Non-veterinarian offers easy-to-understand explanations of just about all veterinary terms you might encounter.

I for one like to understand what health challenges my dogs are facing, what diagnostic tools are being employed and what my treatment options are. I spend countless hours learning about the conditions my dogs are dealing with. But sources are many and getting a clear understanding of the situation isn't always easy.

I love that in the  Dictionary of Veterinary Terms: Vet-speak Deciphered for the Non-veterinarian I have a solid foundation for my research right at my fingertips. I can tell you that my copy will get worn out very quickly.

Even if you're not such a knowledge nut as I am, this book will guide you through the maze of veterinary terminology. By understanding your dog's condition you will be better equipped to deal with it.

  1. Now I have yet another book on my "BUY THIS" list...and I don't think I need it. At least...not yet. I'm glad you don't professionally write reviews for books/toys/etc, because I'd end up with a lot of really great sounding stuff that I probably didn't need.
    This book sounds very interesting thought. Definitely going on my book list.

  2. LOL I just write reviews on books I read and things I've tried AND only the ones I liked :-)

  3. I agree with JJ, this is definitely going on my "BUY THIS" list (that is already around three pages long). I am a severe knowledge nut and am always asking for literature, website referrals, etc from Pru's vet. This would come in handy!
