The “Musher and Veterinary Handbook”

Within the next issue of VCOT, we will be publishing a review on the newly published 3rd edition of the “Musher and Veterinary Handbook”, which is timed rather well considering that one large sled dog race (the Yukon Quest) recently came to a close and another one, the well-known Iditarod race, will soon be taking place. This book was also actually a project for one of VCOTs valued Reviewers and regular Authors, Dirsko von Pfeil, who was involved in the editing of this book and who has also been involved for many years in the Iditarod as a volunteer veterinarian.

For all those who are interested in this sport, or would like to learn more, they can read the review ahead of time <media 10696>here</media>.
