Overview

Over the past 20 years, the care of British and European wildlife casualties and orphans has become accepted as the norm, whereas before euthanasia was the recommended option. The care of injured wildlife brought into veterinary practices can cause problems because of lack of knowledge. Wildlife casualties present an enormous range of species and conditions not normally seen in veterinary practice. When a wildlife casualty is brought in it is the veterinary nurses who administer first aid and lifesaving and carry out any minor surgical procedures. This user friendly book describes how to handle and provide first aid, how to feed and release, and many other disciplines not featured in veterinary or nursing training. It covers a whole range of species with sections on birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Les Stocker’s, Practical Wildlife Care, is jam-packed with an incredible amount of information on wild animal rehabilitation. Stocker’s vast knowledge and experience with wildlife reveals itself in every sentence of the book.” (Suite 101, February 2009)

"If the practice has used and found the first edition useful, this updated edition adds to that resource. If, however, the practice does not have any books on wildlife treatment, then this is an excellent addition to the library." (Vet Times, December 2005)
