Summary

Four authors of international renown have combined their practical and instructional skills to provide this focused yet wide-ranging review. The book is divided into four sections—small mammals, birds, reptiles/amphibians, ornamental fish—and consists of an introduction to the essential aspects of medicine and husbandry of each group of animals, 400 color-illustrated clinical cases, plus summary questions to highlight key points.

The cases are a blend of the more common and especially interesting conditions, and cover clinical presentation, etiology/pathogenesis, investigation, diagnosis and differential diagnosis, management options, prognosis and husbandry advice to the client. The case-based approach offers the freedom to deal succinctly with multifactorial and multisystemic conditions. Cases are cross-referenced, cite key references and there is a detailed index.

The Rapid Review is designed to appeal to veterinary practitioners dealing with an ever-wider variety of animals, to veterinary instructors and students, technicians, nurses and assistants, and to other animal health professionals in practice and training.
