Much has happened in the 19 years since the publication of the first edition of Reptiles and Amphibians: Self-Assessment Color Review. Many more scientists and clinicians have taken an interest in reptiles and amphibians, novel radiographic techniques have been developed, and veterinary surgeons have devised operative solutions to numerous serious conditions in both reptiles and amphibians. The time is right for an expanded second edition that covers these developments and more.
See What’s in the Second Edition:
Written by a foremost authority, this book presents more than 230 cases and questions at different levels of expertise, with detailed explanatory answers. The cases appear in random order, just as they would in real life, and enable you—by solving the clinical puzzle—to make differential diagnoses, treatment plans, and prognoses. The color review includes a wealth of problem-oriented information of value—and enjoyment—for formal and informal training and continuing education.
"The author, Dr. Frederic Frye, is widely considered to be one of the grandfathers of herpetological medicine. This Self-Assessment Color Review of reptiles and amphibians will appeal to a wide audience from experienced veterinarians and herpetologists, to veterinary residents and interns during their formal training, to veterinary students and amateur herpetologists. Even experienced readers will be challenged to think broadly about disease processes and conditions, instead of jumping to a quick conclusion based on pattern recognition". - Douglas Whiteside, DVM, DVSc, DACZM, DECZM (ZHM), Senior Staff Veterinarian, Calgary Zoo, Alberta, Canadian Veterinary Journal, Volume 58, July 2017
"This is an excellent standalone book that reinforces key concepts and provides a framework for practitioners to expand upon their prior knowledge…It is a valuable tool for stimulating readers to think through cases systematically in a real-world manner. Explanations are readily available to confirm a diagnosis or explain the rationale for an alternative. In this way, learning is much more active and meaningful than if these disease presentations were simply explained in standard textbook format." - Julia K Whittington, DVM(University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine), Doody's Book Review Service
