520 |a Clinical Laboratory Animal Medicine: An Introduction, Fourth Edition offers a user-friendly guide to the unique anatomy and physiology, care, common diseases, and treatment of small mammals and nonhuman primates. Carefully designed for ease of use, the book includes tip boxes, images, and review questions to aid in comprehension and learning. The Fourth Edition adds new information on transgenic mice, drug dosages, techniques, and environmental enrichment, making the book a comprehensive working manual for the care and maintenance of common laboratory animals. The book includes information on topics ranging from genetics and behavior to husbandry and techniques in mice, rats, gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs, chinchillas, rabbits, ferrets, and nonhuman primates. A companion website provides editable review questions and answers, instructional PowerPoints, and additional images not found in the book. Clinical Laboratory Animal Medicine is an invaluable resource for practicing veterinarians, veterinary students, veterinary technicians, and research scientists.
