Now in its third edition, Clinical Laboratory Animal Medicine serves as an introductory resource for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, veterinary students, and laboratory staff on treatment and management of laboratory animals, including mice, rats, gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs, chinchillas, rabbits, ferrets, and non-human primates.
Each species chapter follows a simple and easy-to-use format, covering behavior, anatomic and physiological features, breeding and reproduction, husbandry, handling and restraint, blood collection, urine collection, drug administration, anesthesia, surgery, postoperative care, therapeutic agents, and diseases. Convenient tables supply essential biological and physiological data, blood values, and information on drug dosaging. Appendices include normal values or hematological data and serum biochemical data, as well as a listing of organizations in laboratory animal medicine.
Clinical Laboratory Animal Medicine not only facilitates safe and humane treatment of animals in laboratory settings but also can serve as a practical guide for veterinary practitioners and technicians who are faced with many of these same species in daily practice.
