About this book

Rodents and rabbits represent a significant percentage of modern day pets and therefore present a challenge to the veterinarian in a small animal practice. Written by internationally renowned experts, this text contains chapters covering rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, chinchillas, mice, rats and gerbils. Each specific animal chapter covers nutrition, infectious diseases, anaesthesia, metabolic diseases and parasitic infections. The combined experience outlined in this handbook is comprehensive and will provide the veterinarian with the best available guidance in this area of medicine.
