Formulary for Laboratory Animals is an invaluable reference for treatment of laboratory animals and pocket pets. Drugs are listed alphabetically and categorized in five sections based on pharmacologic activity and animal species.
This at-a-glance pocket reference is valuable for students and practitioners of veterinary medicine, researchers and laboratory technicians who prescribe or administer drugs used on common laboratory animals.
The third edition includes a stronger international component, coverage of several new drugs, hundreds of additional dosages, and a thorough update throughout based on the most current research. The third edition also includes a chapter describing how to estimate drug dosages among species using allometric scaling methodology.
