If you’re an author, have written a book about veterinary medicine and are looking for publishers for your book, this post will help you. Below we’ve featured 17 top veterinary book publishers.
With offices in the US such as Berkeley, California, and Cambridge, Massachusetts, and around the world Elsevier is undoubtedly one of the most respected publishers of scholarly knowledge. Established back in 1880, its books have improved humanity’s understanding of science.
Elsevier has everything from health and humanities to physical sciences and health sciences.
In the field of life sciences, particularly in veterinary medicine, you’ll find the fourth edition of Marianne Tear’s Small Animal Surgical Nursing, which includes almost 500 full-color images and detailed steps on pain management and surgical tools.
Likewise, John S. Mattoon’s Small Animal Diagnostic Ultrasound features comprehensive information on internal medicine. It has dedicated sections for body parts such as adrenal glands, gastrointestinal tract, thorax, and the musculoskeletal system.
