Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Randall L. Peper, DVM, PhD (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This book provides a good overview of the basic biology and husbandry of rabbits and rodents. It also provides basic information on analgesia/anesthesia, clinical procedures, and common diseases. This is the fourth edition; the previous edition was published in 1989.
Purpose: The goal was to provide concise, up-to-date, reasonably comprehensive information on the husbandry, biology, and medicine of common rodents and rabbits. The authors intended to provide this information in a format that was accessible, useful, and less expensive than the hardcover reference books currently available.
Audience: The authors intend this book for students, technicians, scientists with a basic knowledge of biology, and veterinarians. They did a reasonable job of not making it too advanced for one group or too basic for the other. The authors are well-known authorities in the field of laboratory animal medicine, with the necessary background and expertise.
Features: For the most part, the black-and-white line drawings that are used to illustrate anatomical features and various techniques are sufficiently large and easily understood. The tables provide compilations of much useful information. The references are current, but whether the book contains individual references or simply a section-ending compilation varies from chapter to chapter. The index is extensive and more than adequate. The case reports in Chapter 6 should be of interest to students and teachers.
Assessment: The earlier editions of the book provided one of the best softcover texts on basic biology, husbandry, and medicine of the common rodents and rabbits. This edition is a welcome update and expansion on the previous editions. Although the writing quality and content varies from section to section and there appear to be some inconsistencies and discrepancies, the book remains a valuable resource.

A classic reference first published in 1977 and most recently in 1989, for veterinarians and people responsible for the health and well being of laboratory animals. Bridges the gap between the expensive and specialized tomes on individual species and the loose pages of lecture notes that laboratory technicians actually refer to. The fourth edition includes new diseases, techniques, and husbandry aspects and replaced some case reports and references with newer ones. Assumes a background in biology. Annotation c.
