Arguably the best book on Amphibian Medicine

Postby Philsuma » Sat Jul 23, 2011 6:05 pm

From Amazon.com:

Amphibian Medicine and Captive Husbandry [Hardcover]
Kevin N. Wright (Author, Editor), Brent R. Whitaker (Author, Editor)

A little expensive....@ $150.00 but a MUST have IMO, especially for those wishing to maintain a large frog room and do their own fecal testing.


Product Description
Amphibian Medicine and Captive Husbandry is designed to introduce veterinary practitioners to the diagnosis and treatment of disease in captive amphibians. Although designed for the veterinary clinician, this text is an essential part of any herpetologist's library, covering various aspects of amphibian captive husbandry and propagation while providing a firm foundation that enables the reader to evaluate a given husbandry routine. The diagnosis of disease in amphibians by the application of basic clinicopathologic techniques is discussed. Infectious, metabolic, nutritional, neoplastic, and idiopathic disorders of amphibians are examined in detail. Fully illustrated, this volume contains 243 color pictures, 317 black and white figures, and 54 tables that enhance the usefulness of the text and will be of interest to zoos and aquariums with amphibian displays as well as to libraries.
