I am a pharmacist who has worked in the largest veterinary hospital in the country and I can easily say that Plumbs is the go to resource for medication choice and dosing. I find it has thorough descriptions of conditions and treatment options. This is extremely important for pharmacists who are working the veterinary field who may not be as familiar with the mg/kg dosing in animals. It breaks down each medication for various species as well, which again is of utmost importance for verifying dosing of all medications. I cant say much more than the book has everything you could possibly need to know, only issue being it is the written book, so updates the website and app would have for new drugs or new information are only going to be in the next edition of the book. Overall, I think this is a necessity for those working in the veterinary field and is a fantastic resource for any and all treatment information.

Pros:
-Thorough
-Various species covered
-Easy to read and understand

Con:
-Updates that the app or website would have obviously will not be in this book. It is what it is and has the most up to date information that was available during the time of publication

Highly recommend this book. I purchased it for $45 and thought that was very fair

Not many veterinarians could survive without Plumbs and while in general the new edition is great, there are times that instead of numbered/bulleted lines, the dose is hidden within lines of text and I revert to an older edition for speed''s sake. What happened to clearly bulleted format of past editions? I do like it when cat and dog dose is the same that there are not 2 separate sections.

Best pharmacy book for vets
Reviewed in the United States on November 24, 2019
Been using Plumb''s books for 30 years when they use to be a little orange spiral bound one (I still have it!)! Best book for vet drugs. Very complete and offers different dosages depending on various sources which is helpful.

Pretty much what you need on your way becoming a veterinarian (like me) its super informative and gives dosages, what animals can take, side effects, and lots others you didn''t think of. It even says about previous studies on the drugs which gives more knowledge. The pages are a bit thin but also feel sturdy. Hefty book and it does have a bit of a smell to it. A few flips periodically through the week and it should subside.

El libro es genial. Pero si volviera atrás en el tiempo no lo compraría. Es la versión grande y de tapas duras, es precioso. Pero ocupa mucho sitio y pesa, por lo que no lo vas a llevar de casa al trabajo, y del trabajo a casa. Existe la app, con el mismo nombre. Al crear la cuenta te permite acceder online desde cualquier dispositivo, y desde la app del móvil. Funciona con iPhone. Es cómoda, intuitiva, y puedes copiar y pegar en el traductor si tienes problemas con el inglés. Permite guardar en favoritos los fármacos que más utilizas, y añadir notas en cualquier fármaco. Tiene un buscador para localizar los fármacos. Lo más importante: se actualiza periódicamente, y siempre la llevas encima. Ojo la app también es de pago. En mi opinión si vas a pagar por el libro, te recomiendo que compres la app. Le doy las 5 estrellas porque el libro en sí vale mucho la pena.
