An excellent information source for the novice or expert animal handler. I use this book extensively for handling of my animals, non of which are exotics. Fowler describes each technique clearly, in terms everyone can understand. This book will be a valued addition to any library whether you're a farmer, zookeeper or dog owner.

This book is just spectacular. There is just a vast range of topics in this book. There are chapters on chemical immobilization, medical termnology, effects of stress, and numerous chapters on restraint procedures by Order/Family and in some cases individual species. Each restraint procedure has detailed pictures. The only problem I have with this book is the pictures are black and white, other than that fact the pictures are very clear and informative. If you work in any wildlife facility, or plan to, I highly recomend buying this book. Also would come in handy for any biologist or zoologist who plans to do in the field studies because of the indepth chapters on chemical restraint/immobilization.

The only complaint I had was the thorough listing of everything in here. But even with that, it really has all the information about the title. All animals and proper techniques are clearly discussed (though this is a book for more text comprehending readers). It is matched perfectly with Animal Restraint for Veterinary Professionals in hand.

I had to buy this book for a restraint and handling class. Once I received it, I found the book to be quite interesting and I find myself reading more than the assigned work. Who knew I would learn how to restrain a porcupine?
