"This well-written and easy-to-read book informs the veterinary community about the possibilities of PDT. The editor and authors have done a fantastic job compiling a well-rounded and informative book on its use in veterinary medicine, the first of its kind. In the age of discovery and evidence-based medicine, this book stands to improve the understanding of, and thereby increase the use of, PDT in veterinary medicine." (Kathryn M. Fleming, Doody's Book Reviews, June, 2017)
