This two-volume set represents a second edition of the original Infectious Diseases and Pathology of Reptiles alongside a new book that covers noninfectious diseases of reptiles. Together, these meet the need for an entirely comprehensive, authoritative single-source reference. The volumes feature color photos of normal anatomy and histology, as well as gross, light, and electron microscopic images of infectious and noninfectious diseases of reptiles. The most detailed and highly-illustrated reference on the market, this two-volume set includes definitive information on every aspect of the anatomy, pathophysiology, and differential diagnosis of infectious and noninfectious diseases affecting reptiles.
Volume 1. Volume 2
This two volume set, Diseases and Pathology of Reptiles: Color Atlas and Text, takes the understanding of reptilian diagnostics to a new level. Never has a book covered Biology, Diagnostics, Infectious and Noninfectious Diseases in such a comprehensive, in depth approach. Whether studying for advanced certification, needing information for research or investigating clinical cases, this publication is a must have.

Elliott Jacobson and Michael Garner…these two legends in reptile biology, disease, and medicine have at long last come together to produce a two-volume reference that is not only unparalleled in its depth and the combined experience of its editors and contributing authors, but is also an absolute must-have for anyone interested in any aspect of herpetological science and medicine.
-- Bruce Williams, DVM, Dipl. ACVP, Senior Pathologist, Veterinary Service, Joint Pathology Center
Pathologists have always been central to herpetological medicine and surgery. Originally because they were the only ones that actually knew what was going on…although admittedly following death and necropsy. I remember John Cooper telling me that Edward Elkan (a notable father of reptile pathology) would refuse to have anything to do with a sick reptile until after it had died. Times have changed and with increasing ante-mortem diagnostics, we are so much better at diagnosing and treating this group of vertebrates. However, the importance of the pathologist has never been greater, and the complexity of their discipline continues to increase. There has to be a symbiotic relationship between clinician and pathologist. These books will be a pillar for the specialty, and essential to both clinicians and pathologist alike.
