"As welcomed, much needed, and excellent as the 1st edition was, the second truly improves on a good thing. This new edition has been expanded to almost twice the size of the original textbook with careful reorganization, outstanding additions, and further development of a well-planned resource text....The most significant change is the addition of six brilliant new chapters on the topics of radiology, toxicology, necropsy procedures, emergency and critical care, behavior, and euthanasia. These well-written and thorough chapters fill in any gaps the 1st edition missed and provide practitioners with information in areas beyond basic clinical medicine." -Journal of Exotic Pet Medicine 40 (2022) 80
