    Diseases of Small Domestic Rodents
    by Virginia Richardson

    Pages 272 pp
    Publisher: --
    Edition: 2nd., July 2003.
    Language: English
    ISBN: 978-1405109215


    Increasing numbers of small rodents are being kept as pets and veterinary surgeons are often asked for advice on a variety of species. This book deals with six popular creatures - chinchillas, mice, rats, gerbils, hamsters and chipmunks. The first chapter of each section provides an introduction to each species and an outline of husbandry and nutrition, emphasising any disease process that may result from poor management. The second, devoted to diseases, moves logically through all the systems (the skin, reproductive, urinary, respiratory, digestive, musculoskeletal, and central nervous systems).
    Not so long ago, hamsters, gerbils and mice were the only rodents kept as pets. Now the variety of rodents and the increasing popularity of these small creatures kept as pets has grown considerably. Since the last edition of Diseases of Small Domestic Rodents, two more rodents have been added to this book and become favourites among pet owners – the degu and the jird.
    As well as two new chapters on jirds and degus, this book has been fully revised and updated to reflect current developments in the treatment and knowledge of diseases in small rodents. With specific sections on anaesthesia and detailed information on drug treatments, Diseases of Small Domestic Rodents is the definitive reference book for students, breeders and practitioners alike.
