    • Coverage of inventory control offers practical tips on performing this important task, including understanding the different vendor types, communicating with sales representatives, and using veterinary practice management computer software.
    • Detailed summaries of important drug laws, such as the Animal Medicinal Drug Use Clarification Act and the Animal Drug Availability Act, introduce you to the legal and ethical aspects of veterinary pharmacology.

    • A companion Evolve website offers 137 photographs of drug labels to familiarize you with the labels you will see in practice, six drug dosage calculators with related exercises to help you strengthen your drug calculation skills, and 12 videos that show you how to administer oral, inhaled, and injectable drugs.

    • Additional review questions in this edition help reinforce your understanding of key concepts. Answers are located in the back of the book so you can check the accuracy of your responses.
