About this book

Logically organized by taxonomic groups, this up-to-date text, Fowler's Zoo and Wild Animal Medicine covers the diagnosis and treatment of all zoo animal species and free-ranging wildlife, including amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals, and fish, unlikely to be seen by private practice veterinarians.

Featuring full-color images, the consistent, user-friendly format in Fowler's Zoo and Wild Animal Medicine supplies information on each animal's biology, unique anatomy, special physiology, reproduction, restraint and handling, housing requirements, nutrition and feeding, surgery and anesthesia, diagnostics, therapeutics, and diseases.

Global authorship includes multinational contributors who offer expert information on different species from around the world.

Please note, despite being subtitled as "volume 8", this is not part of a series, but rather the 8th edition that replaces the previous edition.
