Medicine and Surgery of Camelids
3rd revsied edition
Medicine and Surgery of Camelids is the classic comprehensive reference on llamas, alpacas, vicunas, guanacos, and camels. With information on topics ranging from nutrition and management to infectious diseases and emergency care, this book provides information on the health and maintenance of these species. Updates to the Third Edition include new information on camels; full color throughout; significant revisions to the parentage verification, infectious diseases, anesthesia, restraint, and nutrition sections; and additional information on the alpaca genome. This is an essential resource for practicing veterinarians, zoo veterinarians, and veterinary students.
"This is an excellent medical and surgical reference for camelids. It is thorough, but written concisely so that it is readable. The photographs, illustrations, and tables are very helpful and the book provides useful information on restraint and handling, nutrition at all levels of life, and expected growth patterns. Any veterinarian working with camelids would benefit from having this in their library." (Doody s,22 April 2011)"
"This textbook offers a definitive resource for veterinary care of camelids. It is obvious that the text has been expanded to include more information about camels and updated to include current literature, color images, and new treatments. The price is appropriate, and the book is well worth the price for the amount of information provided and the overall quality of the text."
