With the great increase, worldwide, in the number and variety of reptiles and amphibians kept as pets, in collections or for research, veterinary practitioners are expected to have a good knowledge of the medicine needed to treat them. This Self-Assessment Color Review presents the reader with over 250 short cases using high quality color photographs and questions pitched at various levels of expertise, plus detailed explanatory answers. The cases appear randomly, just as in real life, and allow the reader--by solving the clinical puzzle--to make differential diagnoses, treatment plans and prognoses.

Both authors are internationally renowned, and Dr. Frye is a world authority on reptile and amphibian medicine. Practitioners and students at all levels, as well as herpetologists, professional and amateur, will find in this Color Review a wealth of problem-oriented material to learn from and enjoy in their formal and informal training and continuing education.


Excellent for students or clinicians who want to deepen or broaden their interest.

The cases are presented randomly, are illustrated by 267 photomicrographs in full colour, and appear as self-assessment questions and detailed explanatory answers. Species covered include mainly the dog and cat, with additional material on the horse. The book offers a sampling of cytological features and patterns as an aid to study, revision and continuin.
