A concise guide to the care of small mammals, Ferrets, Rabbits, and Rodents: Clinical Medicine and Surgery covers the conditions seen most often in veterinary practice. The book emphasizes preventive medicine along with topics including disease management, ophthalmology, dentistry, and zoonosis. More than 400 illustrations demonstrate key concepts related to radiographic interpretation, relevant anatomy, and diagnostic, surgical, and therapeutic techniques. Now in full color, this edition adds coverage of more surgical procedures and expands coverage of zoonotic disease. From editors Katherine Quesenberry and James W. Carpenter, along with a team of expert contributors, the "Pink Book" provides an authoritative, single source of information that is hard to find elsewhere. A logical organization makes it quick and easy to find important information, with each section devoted to a single animal and chapters within each section organized by body system. Over 400 photographs and illustrations highlight key concepts such as radiographic interpretation and the main points of diagnostic, surgical, and therapeutic techniques. A chapter on ophthalmology provides hard-to-find information on eye care for ferrets, rabbits, rodents, and other small mammals. Coverage of preventive medicine includes basic biology, husbandry, and routine care of the healthy animal. The drug formulary supplies dosage instructions for ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, hamsters, rats/mice, prairie dogs, hedgehogs, and sugar gliders. Chapter outlines offer at-a-glance overviews of the contents of each chapter. Handy tables and charts make it easy to find key information. Expanded Zoonotic Diseases chapter adds more depth along with the latest information on the rising potential for disease transmission to humans as exotic pets become more popular. Additional surgical procedures for each species are included, some with step-by-step instructions accompanied by color photographs and line drawings. Full-color images show the sometimes minute structures of these small animals and make accurate diagnoses easier, especially for lymphoproliferative diseases of rabbits, endoscopy, cytology, and hematology.

Dieses Buch wird als Atlas bezeichnet, nicht als Lehrbuch. Wir nehmen an, daß sein Benutzer Zugang zum Inhalt der Standardwerke theoretischer und praktischer Hämatologie hat. Wir haben daher nicht die Absicht, deren Dar legungen zu wiederholen. Wir sind der festen Uberzeugung, daß es keinen Ersatz für eigene Bemühungen um mikroskopische Präparate gibt. um Ver ständnis für die hämatologische Zytologie zu gewinnen, aber wir sind ebenfalls überzeugt, daß eine Sammlung von Farbmikrophotos eine nutzliche Ergänzung solcher mikroskopischer Studien darstellen kann. Es existieren gute Atlanten der Hämatologie, aber es besteht Bedarf für einen nicht zu umfangreichen Band von ausgezeichneten Mikrophotos üblicher Große, die eine praktische Hilfe für den täglichen Gebrauch am Mikroskopiertisch sind. Dies zu erreichen war unsere Absicht. Die Abbildungen zeigen Beispiele der meisten Zelltypen, auf die man üblicherweise stoßt. und einige, die seltener sind, aber wir haben eine ein seitige Darstellung von Seltenheiten vermieden. Wir haben auch keine Auswahl von überscharfen photogenen Ausschnitten getroffen, da unser Objektiv eher der Wirklichkeit als der Perfektion folgte. Wir beurteilen die Verschiedenheit in Färbung und Hintergrund unter der Sammlung von Aufnahmen nicht als praxis feindlich, sondern als Hilfe beim Abschätzen der farberischen Variationen, die bei den meisten Färbemethoden im Liblichen Laboratorium eingeschlossen sind.

The Handbook of Laboratory Animal Bacteriology, Second Edition provides comprehensive information on all bacterial phylae found in laboratory rodents and rabbits to assist managers, veterinary pathologists and laboratory animal veterinarians in the management of these organisms. The book starts by examining the general aspects of bacteriology and how to sample and identify bacteria in animals. It then describes the most relevant species within each phylum and discusses the impact they may have on research. Emphasizing those bacteria known to interfere with research protocols, the book offers methods for isolation and differentiation among related bacteria. It discusses where to purchase reagents for rodent bacteriology and outlines standards for safety in a bacteriological laboratory. Highlights of the second edition: Focuses on modern sequencing techniques based on molecular identification Reorganizes content according to modern systematics based on new identification methods Presents new chapters on mechanisms behind bacterial impact on animal models and on the systematic classification of bacteria Provides information on a range of bacteria interfering with animal models for human disease, not only for those bacteria which cause disease in laboratory animal colonies Includes new figures in color and with enhanced resolution The book is essential reading for those interested in the management of organisms known to interfere with the colony health of rabbits and rodents used in research protocols—including facility managers, clinical veterinarians, veterinary pathologists, and researchers.

Among animals used in research, teaching and testing, mice are now widely recognized as the most important model for human diseases and disorders. They comprise the majority of all experimental mammals and tend to be the model of choice used for research into many diseases/disorders including cancer, heart disease, asthma, Alzheimer’s, Down syndrome, deafness, osteoporosis, obesity, diabetes and even mental health research. Additionally the laboratory mouse continues to play a widely publicized vital role in the human genome project. One of the most time-consuming activities in research laboratories is looking up information specific to the species or strain of animal being used. This book, part of the highly successful Handbook of Experimental Animals series, allows the user quick access to any point of interest on the mouse as an experimental model. * Edited by Hans Hedrich, Hannover Medical School * Comprehensive reference source written by international experts * Well-illustrated with high quality detailed images * Two-color, user-friendly format combined with color plate sections

Im Jahre 1931 erschien, herausgegeben von JAFFE, das Buch: "Anatomie und Pathologie der Spontanerkrankungen der kleinen Laboratoriumstiere". Der Zweck des Buches war, dem experimentell arbeitenden Mediziner eine Unterlage dafür zu geben, ob seine Befunde tatsächlich als Ergebnis seiner Versuche zu deuten seien oder ob gleiche Veränderungen auch spontan auftreten könnten. Wir glauben, daß es damals diesen Zweck erfüllt hat, wie aus zahlreichen, dem Werk entnommenen und in aller Welt erschienenen Zitaten hervorgeht. Ein weiterer Zweck des Buches war, Anregung zu geben, Beobachtungen von spontanen Ver änderungen mehr als bis dahin zu veröffentlichen; die vielen inzwischen er schienenen Arbeiten zu diesem Problem bestätigen, daß auch dieses Ziel erreicht wurde. Da seit dem Erscheinen dieses Buches 26 Jahre verstrichen und alle Exemplare längst vergriffen sind, war eine neue Auflage erforderlich. Als vor 3 Jahren der Verlag diesem Plan nähertreten konnte, ergaben sich neue Schwierigkeiten. Zunächst glaubte der damalige Herausgeber (JAFF:E), diese Aufgabe nicht mehr allein übernehmen zu können, da er im Ausland lebt; so kamen die Mitherausgeber (COHRS und MEESSEN) hinzu. Ferner zeigte sich, daß die neue Bearbeitung gegenüber der ersten keineswegs leichter geworden war, weil viele Veröffentlichungen aus dem Schrifttum der Welt zusammengetragen werden mußten. Die Mitarbeiter, die in freundlicher Weise ihre Hilfe zugesagt hatten, mußten deshalb oft eine größere Arbeit leisten, als das fertige Werk ver muten läßt.
