Very interesting read, I'm an RVT in Kansas attending Pre-Veterinary courses and reading this in my spare time. This text explores all of the subjects in much more depth than the texts for veterinary technicians.
I just graduated veterinary school, and the internists refer to Ettinger as their Bible. Sure, it may be true that Ettinger is more complete than Nelson - after all, it's two volumes compared to one. However, in the real world, Nelson & Couto is FAR more clinically useful than Ettinger.
Nelson reads exactly like Fossum's surgery textbook. It lays out every disease process by system, and then introduces them, describes them, and informs on how best to treat the disease. It focuses on useful details that will help you in clinics. It doesn't go into too much extraneous information that would just make it harder to read (like Ettinger).
If you want research detail, get Ettinger. If you want a useful book in clinics or practice, get Nelson & Couto.
I have returned to practise after a really long break. I have found this text a fantastic resource in helping me restore and build my knowledge base. It is so readable - how many texts could you imagine reading while you eat your breakfast! - with facts, opinion and local user knowledge supplemented by practical tables and diagrams. For every-day veterinary medicine I doubt that there is a better text.
