About this book

Animal Hospital is a book for kids on how to treat, handle and report injured, orphaned and neglected wildlife. Our cities are already filled with a huge variety of wildlife. As urban areas expand, they impinge on the natural habitats of animals that would not otherwise find themselves in an urban setting, including birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians, as well as rare, threatened and even endangered wildlife.

Animal Hospital describes how injured and orphaned wild animals are rehabilitated and cared for after being rescued from perilous situations. It follows the activities of an urban animal rescue facility and the efforts of the trained professionals that rescue, treat, rehabilitate and hopefully release the animals. Animal Hospital explains medical triage and provides instructions for citizens who discover injured animals. It gives 'first aid' steps and tells how to contact wildlife experts and transport the animal to a specialized facility, if necessary. There are exciting real-life stories about rescued animals with photographs that give readers an up-close look.

Animal Hospital also describes international efforts that encourage conservation and awareness. This is a valuable title in the classroom and an exciting and inspiring choice for any youngster.
