Abstract

Clinical Laboratory Animal Medicine. By Donald D. Holmes, DVM, Iowa State University Press, Ames, Iowa, 1984, 126 pages, $9.95.

This book was "prepared as an introduction for those planning to pursue further training in laboratory animal medicine, as a text for veterinary medical students, and as a practical guide to veterinarians in private practice". To accomplish this purpose a chapter is devoted to each of the following species: mice, rats, mongolian gerbils, Syrian hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets, nonhuman primates and reptiles . Ferrets and reptiles, though not widely used as laboratory animals, are included because of their increasing popularity as pets and the lack of information about these species in the traditional veterinary curriculum.
