Ideal for all levels of veterinary practice, this easy-to-use reference offers a problem-based approach to the diagnosis and treatment of common husbandry related issues in reptiles. It presents unique checklists for users to ensure accurate and effective assessment of the problem. The majority of reptile illness is due to inappropriate husbandry. Detailed, specialist knowledge of reptile species is usually not necessary in most veterinary practices, but most practices will at some time find the occasional reptile patient. This book is designed for such an occasion. It serves as a ready reference featuring a hands-on approach. Users will be able to pinpoint any major errors in husbandry without having to be an expert in the field. Handy checklists highlight husbandry issues that may be the underlying cause of an animal's presenting condition, which should then be simple to remedy.

Published Review: "With more and more inexperienced reptile owners reporting to their local (non-specialist) practice for information, a publication such as this will be invaluable for all practices. Advising owners (often incorrectly) is regularly left to the nurse having a quick and practical reference guide to hand would certainly help!Caroline Gosden has personal experience of keeping and breeding reptile species and so will give this book a valuable practical slant - ''this worked for me'' - often lacking in veterinary texts written by authors with little real experience." Jo Masters, VN; Education Officer, BVNA; Course Organiser, Vetlink Veterinary Training Centre.Vetnews, Dr Dorianne Elliot 23/03/05"The book details in a clear and simple language, the layout of the book is novel and entertaining. I found this text to be clear, informative and filled with useful tips. I believe this book will be useful to veterinary students, veterinary nurses, pet shop staff and anyone else interested. I would recommend 'The Really Useful Guide to Reptile Husbandry' as a good basic handbook to anyone dealing with exotic amphibians and reptiles in pet or other captive situations"
