In a species category where patients are often presented in end-stage disease, this book offers some practical and much-needed information. Fish medicine has seen a huge increase of information since the first edition of this book was printed in 1992. This volume will be useful to veterinary surgeons, pathologists, and researchers, and there is information, too, for fish hobbyists and commercial breeding farms.

Information on restraint, anesthesia, history taking, and the basic exam will bring the newly interested veterinarian up to speed, and the section on advanced imaging techniques will inform the more experienced practitioner of the latest in diagnostic technology.

There is one chapter on surgical technique, which gives some of the essentials (materials and methods). There are unanswered questions, but this book is not represented as a surgical resource. Each chapter refers you to other reading materials that will provide additional information. Other sections include: Environment; Pond Fish; Freshwater and Marine Aquaria; Laboratory Techniques; Skin Disease; Respiratory Disorders; Ocular Disorders; Behavioral Changes; Parasitic, Bacterial, and Viral Diseases; Toxins; Therapeutics; Legislation; and Health and Safety.

Produced by the British Small Animal Veterinary Association and distributed in this country by Blackwell Publishing (2002).

 (Note: Blackwell Publishing has taken over ownership of Iowa State Press.) As with most of the British Small Animal Veterinary Association books, this book is oversize (11 3/4" x 8 1/4") and filled with color illustrations and charts. Soft cover.

ISBN: 9780905214573.
