About this book

This wide-ranging review is divided into four sections - small mammals, birds, reptiles/amphibians, ornamental fish - and consists of an introduction to the essential aspects of medicine and husbandry of each group of animals, 400 colour-illustrated clinical cases, plus summary questions to highlight key points. "The Rapid Review" is designed to appeal to veterinary practitioners dealing with an ever-wider variety of animals, to veterinary instructors and students, technicians, nurses and assistants, and to other animal health professionals in practice and training.

The illustrations - including photographs of animals, lesions and techniques as well as microscopic images - are excellent... a well presented and very readable book Veterinary Times "The authors have provided a quick guide for the busy general veterinary clinician to use. [They] should be commended on putting together this useful text for the ever-growing veterinary interest to treat exotic animals." Journal of Exotic Pet Medicine -- Thomas Tully Journal of Exotic Pet Medicine 20090401
