Veterinarians increasingly encounter wildlife casualties in practice and have a duty of care for the welfare of the animals. This comprehensive and easy-to-use self-assessment book contains some 208 clinical cases with 325 illustrations. It has been compiled by authors with a wide range of experience and expertise in this area.
Common conditions seen in wildlife species are covered with cases from Europe, North America, the Middle East and Australia. The selection of cases is presented randomly and covers scenarios relevant to most readers.
The book is of use to veterinarians in practice and training and to those working directly with wildlife who wish to expand their knowledge in this field.
