Description

Reviews

Dr. Köhler presents clear, basic information on how to care for amphibians and reptiles, and he draws extensively on his experience as a veterinarian. He describes general diagnostic techniques--parasitological, bacteriological, mycological, and virological--as well as x-ray, ultrasonics and endoscopy. There is a section on proper care and housing for these animals, and the author stresses the importance of providing the right conditions for them, which will contribute greatly toward keeping them healthy. Dr. Köhler also supplies detailed descriptions of the major diseases that affect these animals, making diagnosis and decisions about the correct therapy easier. Tips on how to handle emergencies and give first aid are also provided. The book is a valuable guide for both veterinarians and hobbyists. 133 Color Photographs, 58 Black/White Photographs and Illustrations

"This book comes recommended for keepers, curators, and veterinary technicians working at institutions within AZA. The price of $37.50 is a small price to pay to help insure that we provide the best care possible to these species." -- Thane Johnson, Library News for Zoos and Aquariums, June 2006

"The book certainly serves its purpose--as a quick reference guide and manual for veterinarians and terrarium keepers concerned about the health of their animals. The hardcover binding and photographs (134 color and 87 black-and-white) make the book all the more worth buying." -- Javier Valverde, Reptilia, Number 47

"… richly illustrated…text is clear and easy to access…this book should be useful for both captive breeders, biologists and veterinarians looking for a rapid and easy solution to usual problems with amphibian and reptile species in captivity." -- Mathieu Denoel, Amphibia- Reptilia, December 2006

"The main benefit I see in the book is that causes and prevention of many veterinary problems are explained and animal owners could prevent problems or catch them in their early stages." -- Paul Suplinskas, Newsletter of the Michigan Society of Herpetologists, September 2006

"For the wildlife rehabilitator who would like to know more about herps and their medical maladies or look up a quick idea of what general anatomy or basic dysfunction may look like, this is an excellent book...Readers will find this book down to earth and very practical. It is easy to read for the non-medical hobbyist or care giver, yet sufficiently informative for the veterinarian." -- Janell Osborn, DVM, Wildlife Rehabilitation Bulletin, Volume 24, No. 2, Fall/Winter 2006

"Dr. Kohler has presented a easy to understand treatise of basic diagnostics and treatment options, and it is invaluable for the professional or hobbyist keeper." -- Randal Berry, Animal Keepers' Forum, Vol. 34 No. 3 March 2007
