Rabbits: Health, Husbandry and Diseases PDF

By Virginia C. G. Richardson

Rabbits: Health, Husbandry and Diseases PDF. Rabbits are the third most popular pet in the world and the trend to keep them indoors will make the “house rabbit” the pet of the next century. Rabbit owners expect and deserve the same standard of veterinary care for their rabbits as they receive for their cats and dogs. Devoted entirely to the pet rabbit, this book is a practical and concise guide to health, husbandry and diseases.

The book begins with an overview of rabbit husbandry. Nutritional requirements and clinical examination are covered in chapters 2 and 3. Subsequent chapters then take a body system approach to describing diseases, their diagnosis and treatment. There are separate chapters on behaviour, anaesthesia and surgery, and zoonotic aspects.

This practical, quick-reference guide will appeal to veterinarians, veterinary students, veterinary nurses and breeders alike.
