Just as the title indicates, this book is about exotic animals, and specifically those kept as pets. The basic assumption is that most medical problems in exotic animals are the result of a lack of knowledge about specific animal species.
The first chapters contain general information about keeping exotic animals as pets, and the law. Further chapters cover small mammals, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates, alpacas and llamas, and pot-bellied pigs. Illustrations, diagrams and photos contribute to the clarity of the text. Suggestions for additional books and/or articles are included at the end of each chapter.
