This book is written about ferrets as pets and does not focus on laboratory animals or experiments, unlike other ferret reference manuals. It has 144 pages devoted exclusively to ferrets and another 74 pages of material on subjects like radiography, soft-tissue surgery, and formulary. Some of the photos may be unpleasant for the layperson but are necessary for understanding the medical condition.
This book should be in every ferret owner's library. If you do not have a ferret "expert" for a veterinarian, buy a copy for your vet. If you have an after-hours ferret emergency, take it to the emergency clinic with you. It could save the life of your ferret!
the info is somewhat technical, but understandable. It covers basic vet care, diagnosis, nutritional problems, surgical procedures, anesthesia, antibiotics, therapies....
As a 4-H leader, I am happy to have found this book, it will be a useful reference for my youth.
even after raising/teaching about these critters for 30 + years, It is hard for me to remember all the info. on the multiple species, without a reference. I wish there had been more photos, and that they were in color.
