Description

This remains the Foundation Manual for information across the range of exotic pets, from small mammals, through birds, reptiles and amphibians, to invertebrates. Commoner pets, such as rabbits, rodents and budgies retain their place. However, the ever-increasing range of non-traditional pets encountered by the veterinary surgeon in practice is reflected in coverage of some new groups, such as marsupials, ratites and crocodilians.show more
