Concise summaries of hundreds of common medical problems help you consider differential diagnoses, recommend diagnostic tests, interpret results mindful of unique species differences, utilize important concepts of species-specific husbandry and nutrition, prescribe treatments, and provide follow-up care. With contributions from recognized avian and exotics experts and edited by Jörg Mayer and Thomas M. Donnelly, this clinical reference provides all the information you need in one book! Six-books-in-one format includes six separate sections: Diseases and Disorders, Procedures and Techniques, Differential Diagnosis, Laboratory Tests, Clinical Algorithms, and Zoonoses. In-depth, cutting-edge coverage includes all exotic species ? birds, reptiles, pocket pets, amphibians, and fish ? in one comprehensive resource. Concise summaries feature a definition of each problem, epidemiology, physical findings and clinical presentation, etiology, differential diagnosis, diagnostic workup (such as laboratory tests and imaging studies), treatment, prognosis and patient follow-up, zoonotic potential, and references. Diagnostic and treatment algorithms provide easy-to-follow, step-by-step guidance to clinical assessment and treatment planning.

Editorial Reviews


“This book provides a useful resource with information that is easy to access rapidly and provides the clinician with a working therapeutic plan to recognise and investigate exotic animal cases…The book is laid out, with an index that makes it easy to manoeuvre through the appropriate sections…In summary, this book would make a good addition to the bookshelf of small animal practices that see exotics. Information can be easily accessed for consultations and phone calls. For practices seeing exotics on a regular basis, this book is a useful addition to other texts can provide some additional titbits on many topics.” Veterinary Record, March 2013
