Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"You'll find all you need to master to work with animials, from capture and restraint of swine to calculation of RBC indices. This is really a very thorough work. Recommended readings are listed at the end of the chapters and eye catching 'technican notes' help the reader focus on key points."
