About this book

This new reference provides practical guidance for managing the most frequently encountered problems in common small pet mammals--such as ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, rats, hamsters and other rodents. Individual sections discuss clinically relevant basic anatomy, physiology, husbandry, and behaviour for each group of animals. Chapters on individual body systems provide easy reference for managing specific diseases. Unlike others on the subject, this book addresses the diagnosis and treatment of individual pet animals rather than laboratory animal gourps. Readers will explore both medical and surgical management plus ways to maintain good health.
