About this book

As the popularity of exotic pets has increased, the requirement to extract and expand their sections from the BSAVA Small Animal Formulary has arisen. Following the tried and trusted format of previous editions of the Formulary, Part B of the 9th edition covers small mammals, birds, reptiles, fish and amphibians. It includes doses and other species specific information, with references where available, and useful appendices including sedation and chemotherapy protocols. Part A of the 9th edition, dedicated to cats and dogs, is due for publication in 2017.
