Logically organized by taxonomic groups, this up-to-date text covers the diagnosis and treatment of all zoo animal species and free-ranging wildlife, including amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals, and fish, unlikely to be seen by private practice veterinarians. Featuring full-color images, the consistent, user-friendly format supplies information on each animal’s biology, unique anatomy, special physiology, reproduction, restraint and handling, housing requirements, nutrition and feeding, surgery and anesthesia, diagnostics, therapeutics, and diseases. Global authorship includes multinational contributors who offer expert information on different species from around the world.
"This is a welcome update to an invaluable reference series; a must-have for any veterinary professional working largely in the zoo or wildlife field, and also recommended as a reference text for the library of any practice seeing unusual species on a regular basis, even if they already have an earlier volume."Reviewed by: Charlotte Day on behalf of The Veterinary Record, Oct 14
"Veterinary care of nontraditional species is a rapidly progressing field and this title is the much awaited updated version of this zoo and wildlife practitioner’s ‘bible’.
This provides an excellent single resource and a great starting point for gaining more in-depth knowledge on a subject, with comprehensive reference lists given by each author to direct readers with particular interests." Reviewed by: Charlotte Day on behalf of The Veterinary Record, Oct 14
