Description

Veterinarians increasingly encounter wildlife casualties in practice and have a duty of care for the welfare of the animals. This comprehensive and easy-to-use self assessment book contains some 208 clinical cases with 325 illustrations. It has been compiled by authors with a wide range of experience and expertise in this area. Common conditions seen in wildlife species are covered with cases from Europe, North America, the Middle East and Australia. The selection of cases is presented randomly and covers scenarios relevant to most readers. The book is of value to veterinarians in practice and training and to all those working directly with wildlife who wish to expand their knowledge in this field.

Reviews

…useful for general practitioners who are presented with sick or injured wildlife, with the information presented likely to be of great aid in the initial care and stabilisation of these cases… the variety and range of cases make it both an enjoyable and informative read…For these groups [wildlife vets, those seeing occasional wildlife in small animal clinics, or people pursuing postgraduate qualifications] it could be an invaluable, informative resource, and for the price it would provide a quick, easy and invaluable reference for vets in practice working with these animals.

—Andrew Cushing, Veterinary Record, July 2011

…good quality colour images… cover[s] many wildlife diseases of significance worldwide across a broad range of taxa, including amphibians, reptiles, birds and terrestrial and aquatic mammals. The book admirably serves its intended purpose as a self-assessment tool and does include some case material that is difficult to find reference to in other sources.

—David McLelland, Australian Veterinary Journal, July 2012
