Exceleent material, required for a class. I have found that the Kindle version is harder to look up specific charts/tables and page numbers cited in class are almost impossible to find without extensive searching. Would recommend that if you need this for a class go for the paper version.

The book has awesome pictures to help you properly identify a certain oragnism. Also, bullet points help for reference and trying to remember the important points of each organism.

Good pictures, good, well-organized information for veterinary students and practitioners alike. It is organized by animal species, which is especially helpful! And, it is spiral bound!
