The book has lots of pictures showing what ailments look like and tells what signs to look for. It shows treatment options and lists drugs used for common ailments (and causes). Also a few at home remedies.
It's a handy book to have in case of any common disorder.

...from a great vet and excellent herpetologist. John Rossi is THE herp vet of the Southeast, and certainly in Florida. I've had the good fortune of living near his practice in Jacksonville, FL and he's always helpful.

It has an amazing amount of information on diseases in snakes and how to prevent common problems that create diseases and infections when keeping snakes in captivity.

This book covered in depth all information a snake keeper would need on health problems and had very good suggestions on solving various problems. It also had good suggestions on preventative check-ups (such as checking for bacteria overgrowth when the snake is stressed to prevent a disease from developing). It was written in friendly, non-veterinarian terms while still being professional and descriptive of problems, causes and solutions.
