Overview

A concise guide to the care of small mammals, Ferrets, Rabbits, and Rodents: Clinical Medicine and Surgery covers the conditions seen most often in veterinary practice. The book emphasizes preventive medicine along with topics including disease management, ophthalmology, dentistry, and zoonosis. More than 400 illustrations demonstrate key concepts related to radiographic interpretation, relevant anatomy, and diagnostic, surgical, and therapeutic techniques. Now in full color, this edition adds coverage of more surgical procedures and expands coverage of zoonotic disease. From editors Katherine Quesenberry and James W. Carpenter, along with a team of expert contributors, the "Pink Book" provides an authoritative, single source of information that is hard to find elsewhere.

A logical organization makes it quick and easy to find important information, with each section devoted to a single animal and chapters within each section organized by body system.
Over 400photographs and illustrations highlight key concepts such as radiographic interpretation and the main points of diagnostic, surgical, and therapeutic techniques.
A chapter on ophthalmology provides hard-to-find information on eye care for ferrets, rabbits, rodents, and other small mammals.
Coverage of preventive medicine includes basic biology, husbandry, and routine care of the healthy animal.
The drug formulary supplies dosage instructions for ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, hamsters, rats/mice, prairie dogs, hedgehogs, and sugar gliders.
Chapter outlines offer at-a-glance overviews of the contents of each chapter.
Handy tables and charts make it easy to find key information.

Expanded Zoonotic Diseases chapter adds more depth along with the latest information on the rising potential for disease transmission to humans as exotic pets become more popular.
Additional surgical procedures for each species are included, some with step-by-step instructions accompanied by color photographs and line drawings.
Full-color images show the sometimes minute structures of these small animals and make accurate diagnoses easier, especially for lymphoproliferative diseases of rabbits, endoscopy, cytology, and hematology.

Printed text plus fully searchable electronic access.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Samantha Haskins, DVM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is an update of a concise resource that aims to cover the breadth of exotic mammal pet medicine, from husbandry concerns to common medical and surgical techniques. The previous edition was published in 2003.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide up-to-date information in a reader friendly, concise format. This edition does just that, updating information and providing charts, pictures, and diagrams to support the text and optimize reader comprehension.
Audience: The book can serve as a clinical resource for all levels of exotic animal practitioners, from new graduate, to resident and experienced practitioner. There is a multitude of contributing authors, each a strong, credible member of their field.
Features: This book attempts to cover a wide range of information and is divided by species - including ferrets, rabbits, rodents, guinea pigs, chinchillas, sugar gliders, and African hedgehogs. It covers topics such as emergency and critical care, behavior, dentistry, anesthesia, and diagnostic techniques. Its strength lies in the color images and tables, which provide valuable information and support the text.
Assessment: This is a welcome update, providing current, clinically relevant information in an easy to digest format.
From the Publisher
"The addition of full colour dramatically enhances the feel of the bookand the whole experience of it...This book will appeal to first-opinion and referral exotic veterinary surgeons alike...In summary, this is a well-laid-out and easy-to-read manner, while...The text, even though of great depth, reads as though it is written by those who have genuinely had to examine a gerbil on a Friday night, and is all the better of it."

Veterinary Record, March 2012

"This is a nupdated and expandedhird edition of the well know 'pink book' many practitioners reach for when presented with a small mammal...The content is well written, referenced, and presented in an easily accessible manner with a practical focus.The layout is clean and there are many colour and black and white photographs complemented by line drawings and illustrations, charts and radiographs, which are of consistently high quality...I believe the edition succeeded in their mission to provide 'up-to-date in formation reader-friendly, comprehensive yet concise format'...Ths long awaited refresh will likely restore the 'pink book' being an essential and regularly consulted text for veterinarians dealing with small mammals in practice."
