Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas J. Burke, DVM, MS (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This fourth edition text has 121 international expert contributors covering 104 chapters, and a thorough index. There are numerous tables, charts, and excellent black and white illustrations.
Purpose: Using the popular "Current Therapy" format, the editors have amassed a wealth of up-to-date information on current areas of interest in the major taxa of captive (zoo and pet) and free-ranging wildlife.
Audience: This text is designed for veterinarians and veterinary students interested in captive and free-ranging wildlife.
Features: First are several general chapters that incorporate newer diagnostic and surgical procedures and safety issues. An excellent section on selected zoonoses follows with subsequent sections covering fish (new), reptiles, birds, and mammals, including marine mammals. All of these are well referenced and most contain pertinent illustrations.
Assessment: This format is not designed to be all-inclusive but rather to provide timely information on selected topics of current interest. This book admirably fulfills that purpose. Even those few topics included in the third edition have been significantly updated by different contributors. This is a "must have" book for the zoo and wildlife veterinarian.
