From the Publisher
"The format of this book is to be applauded as the authors introduce the veterinary 'novice' consicely and comprehensively to the subject and the species involved. This book cannot be overlooked. It deserves a place on veterinarians' bookshelves." Veterinary Dermatology, 2006

“A welcome addition to the available literature. The book is well structured and uses a lot of graphics for ease in finding information.” Exotic DVM Magazine

“This book does a very nice job filling a niche in exotic pet veterinary literature. Dermatologic conditions in a wide range of exotic animals are presented in an easily referenced format. The authors have attempted to provide a very thorough listing of pathologic conditions … .It should prove very useful to most veterinary practitioners.” Journal of Exotic Pet Medicine
