Pathology of Wildlife and Zoo Animals is a comprehensive resource for veterinarians and scientists covering the basic pathology of zoo and wildlife species, including a wide scope of animals, disease types and geographic regions. It is the definitive book for students, biologists, scientists, physicians, veterinary clinicians and pathologists working with non-domestic species in a variety of settings, including zoos, privately owned "exotic" pets or collections, laboratory animal settings, animal rehabilitation centers, and in the wild. General chapters include information on performing necropsies, proper techniques to meet the specialized needs of forensic cases, and interpretation of ancillary diagnostics in non-traditional species.

Each chapter and section provides information about a disease at multiple levels, including gross and histologic lesions and information on pathogenesis and optimal diagnostic sampling. For each specific group of animals, information on unique gross and microscopic anatomical features are provided to further assist the reader in deciding whether differences from the domestic animal paradigm are "normal." Additional online content includes access to scanned histologic slides of specific "classic" diseases, providing more information than is available in a single image.

  • Presents a single resource on performing necropsies in a variety of settings
  • Describes unique gross and microscopic anatomical variations among species/taxa to assist in understanding normal features often mistaken for abnormalities
  • Includes the pathology of common diseases among Orders and Taxa, with chapters consistently organized by gross, histologic features and disease pathogenesis
  • Contains full-color illustrations and diagrams that illustrate pathological concepts and diseases in high-quality images
