The pocket sized wire-o binding and lay flat design, with an upgraded cover for added durability, make this book an ideal quick reference guide for use in the field or hospital by the veterinary clinician or professional herpetologist. This informative text
was compiled from Dr. Frye's two-volume set, Biomedical and Surgical Aspects of Captive Reptile Husbandry, to develop a "user-friendly" syllabus and drug formulary for instant reference. Features include examination techniques, specimen collection, laboratory processing, conversion tables, surgical and non-surgical procedures, tables of preferred diets, and drug formulary.
"The real value in this book is found in the many tables and lists...a great deal of useful information is packed into this pocket-sized handbook, and detailed Table of Contents and Index sections add to its value as a reference manual...the compact size and spiral binding make this handbook particularly useful in the veterinary clinic,
laboratory, and any other work place." -- Sandra C. Wilson, DVM Resident Zoological Medicine, Kansas State University. "I find the charts and tables in this small manual to be very helpful for the practitioner doing a limited amount of exotic practice. The text provides a general overview for each species that is a good introduction for the practitioner with little experience." -- Ronald E. Whitford, DVM, R-W Consulting.
