Pathology of Laboratory Rodents and Rabbits has become a standard text for both veterinary pathologists and veterinarians in laboratory animal medicine. Newly recognized infectious diseases continue to emerge and molecular methods for studying infectious agents are becoming widely used for the classification of these and previously known pathogens. With the ongoing development and perfection of genetic engineering techniques, the use of genetically engineered mice in the research laboratory continues to grow exponentially.

This new edition features updates throughout with increased emphasis on timely topics such as infectious diseases in genetically engineered mice. Diseases covered include viral infections, bacterial infections, parasitic diseases, nutritional and metabolic disorders, behavioral disorders, aging and degenerative disorders, environment-related disease, and neoplasms. Organized by species, coverage includes mice, rats, hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs, and rabbits. Veterinary pathologists, laboratory animal veterinarians, and students will appreciate the concise organization and easily accessible information on key diagnostic features, differential diagnoses, and significance of diseases.

“This is an excellent book for those requiring a comprehensive review of major infectious and noninfectious diseases of rodents and rabbits, providing accurate and up-to-date information on their pathology and diagnosis. There are no contemporary competing books that address the pathology of multiple species and have a strong focus on infectious diseases. Because of the rapidly changing field, the new edition is essential for those working in laboratory animal medicine and pathology. - Doody's Reviews<!--end-->.

“...provides a comprehensive synopsis of the important diseases affecting laboratory rodents and rabbits... has earned the reputation of being a key resource and required reading for veterinarians who are seeking board certification in laboratory animal medicine and veterinary patholoogy disciplines.... also extremely useful for laboratory animal health technicians and veterinary students.  The new edition features updates throughout while maintaining the concise organization of previous editions and for these reasons will continue to be a standard pathology text for those working with laboratory rodents and rabbits.  - Interface: Newsletter of the Canadian Association for Laboratory Animal Medicine

"Overall, this book still remains one of the best overviews of pathology in laboratory animals, particularly of infectious disease.  The clear, concise and easy-to-follow style should find its way onto an available bookshelf for all with a professional interest in these species." - BTS Newsletter

“An excellent reference that should be on the shelf of pathologists interested in these animals. It would also be valuable to clinicians who see these subject animals [or] those who like to explore the subject of pathology and want more information and description of the lesions of the diseases they see.” - Exotic DVM Magazine
