    Review quote
    "This book contains helpful information for veterinary technicians about exotic animals, including the importance of a good history and the ability to provide the client with accurate information. It is written for veterinary technicians with little experience with exotic animals, but it also would be helpful for students and beginning practitioners." (Doody's, July 2010)
