In this way we come at the same time dure for theory elimination. to the border between science and nonscience: a Popper's naive falsifiability knows only one theory is scientific if it is falsifiable. It is thus way, the elimination of what is weak. The so­ not scientific to bring additional evidence to phisticated falsifiability, in contrast, knows only bear in vindication of the theory; the theory elimination in combination with the acceptance would thereby take on the character of an un­ of an alternative.

` The book is well written, concise and yet very well directed. From my point of view, it should be required reading (and passing) before a studient is allowed to move on to the clinics and the responsibility for the care of patients.'
Stephen J. Ettinger, DVM, California Animal Hospital

` As a teacher of undergraduate veterinary students the text provides excellent information for them to learn how to complete and to understand the clinical examination of companion animals. As a mature veterinarian the book reinforces and exposes all the `old' skills we used to learn. I commend it to undergraduate veterinary students and to veterinarians who wish to revise, relearn, or remind themselves of examining methods and procedures in small animal medicine. '
Boyd Jones in New Zeland Veterinary Journal
