From the Publisher"Clinicians in laboratory animal medicine will find this book an irreplaceable source of information…. The overall compilation of invertebrate medicine makes this probably the premier text on the subject. I would recommend having a copy in the clinic library." (Veterinary Information Network, May 3, 2006)
"This is the first veterinary textbook devoted exclusively to an in-depth review of aquatic and terrestrial invertebrate medicine…. Historically, veterinary medicine has not focused on these animals, however, terrestrial and aquatic invertebrates are being presented for veterinary care with increasing frequency.
The chapters are well organized and easy to read. There are good reviews of basic anatomy and husbandry and the text centralized references in one location to interested readers to pursue more in-depth research. The chapter authors have organized information in a format that will be familiar to veterinarians and emphasize disease conditions where these are known.
This is an excellent starting place for clinicians who want to expand their invertebrate medicine practice. It will hopefully inspire others to contribute to this growing area of veterinary medicine." (Avian Practice, Volume 8, Issue 3)
"First of its kind…this highly readable book will be an invaluable aid…sure to become the standard…to which all future works will be compared." (Veterinary Pathology)
