    Description"Exotic Animal Medicine: A Quick Reference Guide" provides readily accessible, user-friendly information for veterinarians who do not have detailed knowledge of the majority of exotic pet species. The book gives the key points on differential diagnoses and diagnostics, along with background information on a wide variety of exotic pets. It is formatted so that, whether experienced with exotics or not, the clinician can at a glance: view the likely conditions to be encountered within that species or animal group; develop a potential differential diagnosis list quickly; initiate an investigational plan; and, view treatment regimes. Species covered include ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, pet rats, hamsters and other small rodents; parrots, budgerigars and related species, canaries, finches, toucans; lizards, snakes, tortoises and turtles, frogs, salamanders; pond fish, tropical freshwater fish and tropical marine fish. With practical hints given on such topics as handling, nursing care and anaesthesia, "Exotic Animal Medicine" will also be invaluable to veterinary students, nurses and technicians around the world.

    Review quote
    "This book is just what is needed to dive into in those few minutes between clients during a busy consulting session when you haven't got much time to think... Lance Jepson is to be congratulated on this book - to achieve this as sole author, covering so many species, is a remarkable undertaking .Even though a fairly large pocket is needed, he has achieved his aims extremely well and produced a book packed with relevant, practical information." Journal of Small Animal Practice ''It is obvious that Dr. Jepson put a great deal of effort into this collection of clinical data. While reading the book you can imagine DR. Jepson collecting and organizing clinical observations as an aid to diagnose and treat the nontraditional/ exotic animal cases that were presented to the hospital. In conclusion, this book is a great? collection of a vast amount of clinical data which is often hard to obtain, but it should not be used a primary clinical resource.'' Jorg Mayer
