Description - The Physiological Basis of Veterinary Clinical Pharmacology by J. Desmond Baggot
One of the problems facing the veterinarian in the application of pharmacological principles to practice is that of difference in drug metabolism in different species. Anatomical and physiological features can alter the way a drug works in a particular animal and the dosage required. This monograph reviews literature on the physiological basis of clinical pharmacology. This book should contribute to the academic advancement of veterinary pharmacology and therapeutics.
