Couverture
John Wiley & Sons, 15 avr. 2008 - 272 pages
Not so long ago, hamsters, gerbils and mice were the only rodents kept as pets. Now the variety of rodents and the increasing popularity of these small creatures kept as pets has grown considerably. Since the last edition of Diseases of Small Domestic Rodents, two more rodents have been added to this book and become favourites among pet owners – the degu and the jird.


As well as two new chapters on jirds and degus, this book has been fully revised and updated to reflect current developments in the treatment and knowledge of diseases in small rodents. With specific sections on anaesthesia and detailed information on drug treatments, Diseases of Small Domestic Rodents is the definitive reference book for students, breeders and practitioners alike.
