"This edition, the third, is a great tool for the farm vets of today[...]The experience of the four authors shines through, with some warnings so dire that you won't forget them in a hurry, no doubt making you a better veterinary surgeon[...]the regular boxed discussion points, tips and warnings make it easy to read when you need it most[...]Overall I would highly recommend Wiley's third edition of Bovine Surgery and Lameness. I have used it extensively while on placement and it was invaluable when quickly prepping on the way to a farm so I could assess the case with the benefit of knowledge and be proactive in my approach to it." - The Journal of the Association of Veterinary Students, Autumn 2018
