Clinical Anatomy and Physiology of Exotic Species bridges the gap between the clinical application of the anatomy and physiology of commonly-encountered exotic species and veterinary treatment. The first in-depth textbook of its kind, this resource deals solely with the comparative anatomy and physiology of exotic species — small mammals, reptiles, and birds. For these commonly encountered species, it highlights clinical considerations for veterinary treatment. The book is heavily illustrated with clear line diagrams, radiographs, and color illustrations, explaining clearly the functioning of exotic species.


“It provides a concise and accessible overview of the basic anatomy and physiology of some of the more commonly encountered exotic species.” - Irish Veterinary Journal Vol. 59: March 2006

“This book is written by an experienced exotic animal practitioner and lecturer for a veterinary surgeon in practice who deals with the occasional exotic patient. The main features concentrate on basic information regarding physiology, anatomy, and husbandry. The book contains many excellent and unique colour plates and radiographs for illustration. This will prove invaluable for locating sampling sites and internal and external anatomy for surgery, as well as necropsy. For quick reference the animal classes are divided by colour coded pages. Within each chapter there is information on general and clinical anatomy and physiology of class, followed by more detailed notes on individual species including some guidance on sexing, venepuncture sites and some clinical information. UI deal with many vets who do not treat exotic species on a regular basis and I have recommended this book as a quick reference guide many times. In my view, this book is excellent value for money.” - Petra Wesche, Veterinary Times.
