Ferret Husbandry Medicine
Opis: Ferret Husbandry Medicine - J Lewington
"Ferret Husbandry, Medicine and Surgery" is a must-have for the small animal practitioner and those interested in ferrets in general. It aims to inform on all aspects and conditions relating to the domestic ferret. Edited and authored by one of the eminent authorities on ferrets in the world, John Lewington for this new edition, is joined by contributions including both new text and illustrations from ferret experts based in 8 different countries, including the UK, US, Australia, Japan and Russia, thus ensuring the most current and complete information is available on this increasingly popular animal. Fully updated and with full colour throughout, this second edition now has 5 new chapters: gastroenteric/liver diseases; ferret-polecat domestication and genetics; ferret dentistry and pathology; ferret toxicosis; and ferret ultrasonography, covering new radiology and ultrasound techniques. "John Lewington is a practitioner who wishes to share his knowledge and love of ferrets. In doing so he keeps the 'chatty' style of the first edition. This is important - in accomplishing his aims he has written a unique book. While he has 'imported' some new authors covering specific sections and whole chapters this is essentially a single author volume.
This is the best ferret book on the market. The price represents excellent value (it is well illustrated) and, with ferrets becoming increasingly common pets, it will justify its position on the shelf of anyone seeing more than the occasional ferret. For those seeing ferrets regularly or specialising in exotic species, it is required reading.
There have been major advacnes in ferret medicine since the first edition in 2000 and these have been covered in great depth.
Recycle yur old edition and replace it with the second, settle back and enjoy learning!" - Reviewed by John Chitty, The Veterinary Record, August 11, 2007
"I was certainly impressed with this book, with its broad range of content, colour pictures and it probably contains virtually anything that you could wish to know about ferrets. It is easy to read, as it is written in a fairly chatty style with boxes containing information on relevant clinical cases, but it still contains the sort of detailed information necessary for any veterinary surgeon treating ferrets.
I would whole-heartedly recommend this book to any veterinary surgeon with more than a passing interest in ferrets, as well as recommending it to owners who want to be better informed on the care of their animals.?
