Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Full of helpful information for rabbit owners whose pets are ill, injured, or in need of extra help . . . this should be required reading."  —Library Journal

Library Journal

Full of helpful information for rabbit owners whose pets are ill, injured, or in need of extra help, Moore (A House Rabbit Primer ) and Smith's (Rabbit Health in the 21st Century ) guide is unique for two reasons: it is entirely devoted to the care of animals with special needs, and it includes alternative therapies and healing methods such as acupuncture, chiropractic, healing through touch, and interspecies communication. The authors have consulted with several veterinarians to ensure the information on traditional care is accurate, although they acknowledge that there may be differences of opinion among veterinarians about the best care for various ailments. Appendixes include a table of medications and appropriate doses, a list of rabbit vital signs, and lists of both traditional and alternative care resources for pet owners. The book may have a fairly limited audience as not all rabbit owners will be willing and able to devote the time and effort necessary to care for a special-needs rabbit. For owners who do, this should be required reading. Recommended where interest warrants.-Deborah Emerson, Rochester Regional Lib. Council, Fairport, NY
