Wild and Exotic Animal Ophthalmology, Volume 1, Invertebrates, Fishes, Amphibians, Reptiles, and Birds PDF

By Fabiano Montiani-Ferreira, Bret A. Moore and Gil Ben-Shlomo

Wild and Exotic Animal Ophthalmology, Volume 1, Invertebrates, Fishes, Amphibians, Reptiles, and Birds PDF is the first textbook to offer a practical yet comprehensive approach to clinical ophthalmology in wild and exotic invertebrates, fishes, amphibia, reptiles, and birds. A phylogenetic approach is used to introduce the ecology and importance of vision across all creatures great and small before focusing on both the diverse aspects of comparative anatomy and clinical management of ocular disease from one species group to the next. Edited by three of the most esteemed authorities in exotic animal ophthalmology, this two-volume work is separated into non-mammalian species (Volume 1: Invertebrates, Fishes, Amphibians, Reptiles, and Birds) and Mammals (Volume 2: Mammals).

Wild and Exotic Animal Ophthalmology, Volumes 1 and 2 is an essential collection for veterinary ophthalmologists and other veterinary practitioners working with wild and exotic animals.

  • Provides hundreds of high quality color photos and illustrations to visualize ocular conditions
  • Brings clinical expertise in managing ophthalmic diseases to a comprehensive approach of animal vision science
  • Covers all important orders of fish, amphibia, reptiles, birds and invertebrates
