9780080425047: Handbook of Rodent and Rabbit Medicine, 1e (Advances in the Biosciences,)

Rodents and rabbits represent a significant percentage of modern day pets and therefore present a challenge to the veterinarian in a small animal practice. Written by internationally renowned experts, this text contains chapters covering rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, chinchillas, mice, rats and gerbils. Each specific animal chapter covers nutrition, infectious diseases, anaesthesia, metabolic diseases and parasitic infections. The combined experience outlined in this handbook is comprehensive and will provide the veterinarian with the best available guidance in this area of medicine.

About the Author:

Paul Flecknell is a veterinarian with over 35 years of experience working with laboratory animals. He is a Diplomate of the European Colleges of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia and Laboratory Animal Medicine and an honorary Diplomate of the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine. He has PhD in physiology, and is currently Professor of Laboratory Animal Science in the Institute of Neuroscience at Newcastle University. His main research interests are anaesthesia and analgesia of all species of animals and in particular the development of methods of pain assessment. He is the head of the Pain and Animal Welfare Science (PAWS) group at Newcastle. The group’s current research work is focussed on novel methods of “cage-side assessment of pain, particularly using “pain faces and developing methods of measurement of affective state in rodents.

Review:

"This is a multi author book (16 contributors) all of whom with the exception of Paul Flecknell are from the United States. An excellent preface sets the tone. There is recognition of the fact that most knowledge has been obtained by research workers and that it is only recently that many of these animals have been kept as pets. In addition it is especially important to remember that for these species, good husbandry is the best form of preventive medicine and preventive medicine is more effective in keeping rabbits and rodents alive than attempting to treat them once they are ill.

... A unique feature of this book is the beautifully set out tables to be found at the end of each chapter. These summarise the clinical information on each body system under the headings Disease/Agent, Animal(s) affected, Clinical Signs, Diagnosis, Treatment and Control, and Comments. Also included here are details on physiology, haematology, clinical chemistry and reproductive data. These are sections which the clinician will inevitably use as an important reference source.

This book aims to be, and succeeds in being, a reference book both for those colleagues who need to deal with rodents on a herd basis and those treating them as pets. There is as much detail here as will be found anywhere on skin diseases and certainly enough to satisfy the requirements of candidates in basic and advanced dermatology examinations.

The authors are to be congratulated for producing a very readable and at times fascinating account of the diseases associated with these species and doing so in a very uniform way throughout. I recommend this book to dermatologists." D I Grant, Veterinary Dermatology 1999, 10, paper 163, January 1999
