Jones's Animal Nursing, 4th Edition, D.R. Lane, Editor. Pergamon Press, Elmsford, New York, 1985, paperback $38.00, hardcover $69.00, 706 pages.

Jones's Animal Nursing is advertised as a text which "covers the whole area of small animal nursing;' The text is strictly directed toward technicians who are working with companion animals (including birds and laboratory rodents); there are no sections dealing with large animal nursing; The book covers a wide gamut of topics in small animal nursing, unfortunately, many significant subject areas are dealt with in such brevity as to render those sections useless.
