From budgies and cockatiels to chipmunks and chinchillas, our interest in exotic pets has rocketed in recent years. With the house rabbit being the UK's third most commonly kept pet after the cat and dog, and sales in small mammals, reptiles and birds continuing to grow, exotic pets have now become a specialist area of veterinary practice in their own right.
Veterinary Nursing of Exotic Pets is the first book to address the need for a definitive reference book devoted entirely to the principles and applications of nursing exotic species. Developed from a City and Guild's course, it not only covers husbandry, nutrition and handling, but also explores anatomy and chemical restraint, and provides an overview of diseases and treatments.

Simon Girling has run a first opinion and referral service for exotic animals at the Braid Veterinary Hospital in Edinburgh since 1995. He is currently a Council member and Treasurer for the British Veterinary Zoological Society, an advisor to the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland’s Edinburgh Zoo and Highland Wildlife Park, and a Trustee and Treasurer for the Zebra Foundation, a charitable trust funding veterinary education in zoological medicine. Simon has authored and co-authored several texts on veterinary medicine for exotic species.Review:
"At present, to my knowledge, no veterinary nursing book completely dedicated to exotic animals exists. It would therefore appear that there is a niche in the market for this book. I receive regular enquiries concerning recommended texts from veterinary nurses and at present none exist. The book will be a valuable asset".
—Emma Keeble, Lecturer & Specialists in Exotic Pets, Edinburgh University Veterinary School
