Editorial Reviews

Review

"This a very handy book, and this revised edition includes a fantastic spread of drug doses and a mass of new references...It is very favourably priced and several (but not all) sections have seen considerable revision in drugs and dosages."

Generally, a good and comprehensive exotics formulary.

Why is it, however, that publishers seem incapable of producing convenient and logical ebooks! Virtually every veterinary ebook I have is terribly designed even if the hardcopy is good. Ebooks should be extremely easy to navigate and find specific items. I wanted to find a dose of meloxicam for a duck. Well, the table of contents simply lists "Birds" and doesn't break the topics down into further navigable categories like, Antimicrobials, Antiinflammatories etc. If you search for "meloxicam" you get many hits with little help to tell which is relevant without looking at each one. If you search for "meloxicam duck" you get no hits. I ended up going page by page through the avian section which was very tedious.

Grrr

i am new to practicing with exotics and this is a great drug guide. I wish they had a little more information about when to use what, but overall it is a great book. I also am very pleased with the digital copy as you can adjust the font so tables show up on one page and are easily accessible.

Very helpful and useful. Worth the money if you ever see exotics or work in an emergency service that sees them. It is one of the best resources out there to help no matter your experience or specialty. My advise though is to use caution with some of the drug dosages, in many cases the dosages Carpenters uses is research/lab animal based, so if it doesn't seem right, consult an exotics specialist or use common sense!

This book came highly recommended from board certified zoo and exotic animal veterinarians. It is organized by species and is easy to read. Definitely important if you practice veterinary medicine on small mammals or reptiles as Plumbs does not always have accurate doses for those species.

Lots of great information on a large variety of animals (mammals, birds, fish...) that I don't think is available elsewhere. Compared it to a friend's 3rd edition, and it has more information, pictures and much better graphics (color shading on pages, color pictures) that make it easier and nicer to look at. She may get one of the 4th edition for this reason alone. Great for any veterinary office, wildlife rehabbers, any one interested.

Since vet school, I've had an interest in exotics. In the past year, I've probably seen more exotics than in my previous 7 years since graduation. It's very straight forward and a great reference. I used to refer mostly to "Ferrets, Rabbits and Rodents" to look up dosages, but this is becoming my new go to. It is divided up into sections based on type of animal, then broken down in types of drugs, ie antibiotics, pain meds, etc. It has a nice sturdy cover, decent print size and smaller size compared to most textbooks.

This is a great book for wildlfe rehabilitators. Lots of important information for treating and raising exotic animals. This book was highly recommended at the state wildlife rehabilitators conference I attended in September. I am a wildlfe rehabilitator in Florida and also own exotic birds. It's a must-have if you're treating and caring for exotics. It arrived quickly and in good condition.
