Reviews

finding specific information is quite easy, meaning that it is a useful book to dip into while performing a work-up. Images are generally of high quality... provides well-described, basic and accessible information about radiography, ultrasonography, CT and MRI in commonly seen species... any practice regularly seeing exotic species and keen to increase the diagnostic work-up they perform would find this a useful reference and teaching guide... a good book to dip into as cases present in practice and double-check techniques, cross-reference your own images or even find out whether some things are possible in exotic species... I suspect many experienced exotic practitioners might also enjoy having this manual in their practice library. -- Gabrielle J. Drake Veterinary Record 20110212 This amazing book... has handy hints and detailed information on the equipment required, safety, positioning and projections, indications for imaging, possible clinical signs and normal variations... Useful tables and information boxes are scattered throughout... excellent, well-labelled images... I thoroughly loved this book, particularly the detailed and specific information and clear explanations of anatomy and positioning... The layout, table of contents, index and colour tabs made locating items of interests easy... I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone in the veterinary or animal care profession who treats birds, pocket pets or reptiles, or anyone with an interest in these increasingly popular pets. -- M Welsh Australian Veterinary Journal 20111001
