Wildlife care and rehabilitation is often on a one-to-one basis and involves a lot of time, care and skill. However, for many years, care of injured wildlife was regarded as a low priority and euthanasia was the recommended option. A lot has changed over the past twenty years and now caring for wildlife casualties is part of everyday life in many veterinary practices.

Following on from the major success of the first edition, this second edition provides even more useful information on wildlife care and rehabilitation. As well as covering a whole range of species, with sections on birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians, this edition now includes information on many 'alien' species appearing in the British countryside such as wallabies, wild boar and exotic reptiles.

In this edition:

* Essential guidance on handling, first aid, feeding and releasing, and many other disciplines not featured in veterinary or nursing training;

* Full of helpful tips from an expert in wildlife rehabilitation who has unparalleled practical experience;

* Expanded chapters on the care of all species - particularly casualty badgers, otters and hedgehogs - and more comprehensive guidance on rearing orphaned mammals and birds;

* Lots more colour pictures to aid in management and care techniques and the latest information on zoonotic diseases from around the world.

About the Author:

Les Stocker MBE, HonAssocRCVS is the Founder of the Wildlife Hospital Trust, St. Tiggywinkles, Europe's first and the World's busiest wildlife teaching hospital. In 1990 he became a Laureate on winning the Rolex Award for Enterprise. In 1991 he was awarded an MBE for his services to wildlife and in 2002 was granted an Honorary Associateship of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. He is author of a number of best selling books, papers, articles and writer of television programmes on wildlife rehabilitation and is accepted as one of the Country's leading experts on wildlife care.

Review:

“Les Stocker’s, Practical Wildlife Care, is jam-packed with an incredible amount of information on wild animal rehabilitation. Stocker’s vast knowledge and experience with wildlife reveals itself in every sentence of the book.” (Suite 101, February 2009)

"If the practice has used and found the first edition useful, this updated edition adds to that resource. If, however, the practice does not have any books on wildlife treatment, then this is an excellent addition to the library." (Vet Times, December 2005)
