Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book has a broad overview of clinical medicine and surgical information on ferrets and rabbits and some small mammal species that are hard to find in one place. The book is easy to read and has complete and current references. This textbook is an important reference text for those veterinarians and others who work with these species of animals."
-Veterinary Pathology 42:2, 2005

"The second edition of this book carries on the tradition of the first with the addition of Sugar Gliders, Hedgehogs, and Prairie Dogs. This book contains the work of 43 specialists covering a wide range of disciplines and from foreign countries (as well as the United States). I commend the authors and editors for the quality of the text, no matter what subject you are reading you can tell by the style and tone that the author has really done his homework, ideas are not left hanging without documentation to back the author up. Each chapter provides an excellent summary of published research. The value of this book extends beyond just veterinary hospital; anyone with an interest in these animals will find value within these pages. This book comes highly recommended for any AZA institution dealing with these species."
-Library News, 2005
