Comprehensive, intensely practical, and extensively illustrated, this unique book consolidates years of practical knowledge of dealing with injured birds of prey. Written by a practicing veterinarian, it:
- concisely covers helpful, day-to-day advice through hints, tips and clinical insights;
- provides an emphasis on practical procedures;
- and includes numerous illustrations for easy recognition of symptoms and replication of techniques.
Outlining everything from handling and the intake examination through to practical procedures and the treatment of a comprehensive range of conditions and injuries, Raptor Medicine, Surgery and Rehabilitation also advises readers on housing, rehabilitation and eventual release. Also including numerous rapid reference charts, this book is the one text that any avian or general veterinarian needs by the bench for the treatment of raptors and birds of prey.
"arranged in a very useful manner and has great information for people of all experience levels. I'm hoping it becomes a staple for all teaching hospitals."
– Dr Dave McRuer, Director of Veterinary Services, Wildlife Center of Virginia, USA
