Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a multi author book (16 contributors) all of whom with the exception of Paul Flecknell are from the United States. An excellent preface sets the tone. There is recognition of the fact that most knowledge has been obtained by research workers and that it is only recently that many of these animals have been kept as pets. In addition it is especially important to remember that for these species, good husbandry is the best form of preventive medicine and preventive medicine is more effective in keeping rabbits and rodents alive than attempting to treat them once they are ill.

... A unique feature of this book is the beautifully set out tables to be found at the end of each chapter. These summarise the clinical information on each body system under the headings Disease/Agent, Animal(s) affected, Clinical Signs, Diagnosis, Treatment and Control, and Comments. Also included here are details on physiology, haematology, clinical chemistry and reproductive data. These are sections which the clinician will inevitably use as an important reference source.

This book aims to be, and succeeds in being, a reference book both for those colleagues who need to deal with rodents on a herd basis and those treating them as pets. There is as much detail here as will be found anywhere on skin diseases and certainly enough to satisfy the requirements of candidates in basic and advanced dermatology examinations.

The authors are to be congratulated for producing a very readable and at times fascinating account of the diseases associated with these species and doing so in a very uniform way throughout. I recommend this book to dermatologists." D I Grant, Veterinary Dermatology 1999, 10, paper 163, January 1999
