Exotics and Wildlife: a manual of veterinary nursing care provides a hands-on approach to nursing exotic pets and wildlife common to the UK.

The increasing popularity of exotic pets sees a wide variety of species pass through practices on a daily basis of which the care and management is the responsibility of the veterinary nurse. This change in pet ownership has been recognised and reflected in the updated curriculum of the veterinary nurse. Exotics and Wildlife: a manual of veterinary nursing links with the current S/NVQ syllabus, informing, preparing and teaching the veterinary nurse to deal with the variety of species they are likely to see in practice. Species covered include: rabbits, rodents, snakes, lizards, chelonia, cage and wild birds, birds of prey, bats, foxes, hedgehogs, squirrels, deer and badgers.
