Ferrets, Rabbits, and Rodents : Clinical Medicine and Surgery
A logical organization makes it quick and easy to find important information, with each section devoted to a single animal and chapters within each section organized by body system.
Over 400 photographs and illustrations highlight key concepts such as radiographic interpretation and the main points of diagnostic, surgical, and therapeutic techniques.
A chapter on ophthalmology provides hard-to-find information on eye care for ferrets, rabbits, rodents, and other small mammals.
Coverage of preventive medicine includes basic biology, husbandry, and routine care of the healthy animal.
The drug formulary supplies dosage instructions for ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, hamsters, rats/mice, prairie dogs, hedgehogs, and sugar gliders.
Chapter outlines offer at-a-glance overviews of the contents of each chapter.
Handy tables and charts make it easy to find key information.
Expanded Zoonotic Diseases chapter adds more depth along with the latest information on the rising potential for disease transmission to humans as exotic pets become more popular.
Additional surgical procedures for each species are included, some with step-by-step instructions accompanied by color photographs and line drawings.
Full-color images show the sometimes minute structures of these small animals and make accurate diagnoses easier, especially for lymphoproliferative diseases of rabbits, endoscopy, cytology, and hematology.

Table of contents
Veterinary Record, March 2012
"This is a nupdated and expandedhird edition of the well know 'pink book' many practitioners reach for when presented with a small mammal...The content is well written, referenced, and presented in an easily accessible manner with a practical focus.The layout is clean and there are many colour and black and white photographs complemented by line drawings and illustrations, charts and radiographs, which are of consistently high quality...I believe the edition succeeded in their mission to provide 'up-to-date in formation reader-friendly, comprehensive yet concise format'...Ths long awaited refresh will likely restore the 'pink book' being an essential and regularly consulted text for veterinarians dealing with small mammals in practice."
