Media reviews

"Overall, this book is a great source of information for veterinary technicians and assistants who frequently work with small mammals. The text is very easy to use, and could also be used to provide information to clients who need help with husbandry. It is small, concise, and to the point without a bunch of statistics or unnecessary text to muddle through. This text would be a great addition to any general or exotic practice, or for the veterinary technician's library. Veterinarians and other staff members may also benefit from having this book on their shelf of easy-to-reach reference material."
