Essential Drug Data for Vets Now Found in One Volume

Complete data on veterinary pharmacology can now be found from one source. It is Kingsley Eghianruwa’s new compendium of Essential Drug Data for Rational Therapy in Veterinary Practice published by AuthorHouse, a one-stop, easy-access source book of great value to practicing physicians with current values on humane treatment of animals.

Kingsley’s book offers quick and easy reference to chemical and pharmacological classifications, sources, pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic and pharmaceutical data of drugs used in veterinary practice. To keep pace with the rate at which new drugs are released into the market, the veterinary practitioner requires accessible facts in one volume, adequate drug information which he needs for effective animal care.

Evidence-based drug therapy requires knowledge of drugs. The book presents not less than twenty five sets of data on about three hundred drugs that are commonly used in veterinary practice. The book contains, in one source, the much needed drug information by practicing veterinarians to fulfill their professional and ethical obligation to use drugs rationally;  to treat, protect or alleviate animal diseases without causing death or iatrogenic diseases.
