DESCRIPTION

Reach for this book whenever a sick or injured tortoise comes into the surgery. Essentials of Tortoise Medicine and Surgery is designed as a concise and practical quick reference for the busy practitioner seeing chelonians as part of their caseload.  Covering everything from species identification to common basic surgery for tortoises and freshwater turtles, the emphasis is on the more common and likely diagnoses.
The first section of the book gives an overview of the basics of tortoise and semi-aquatic/ aquatic freshwater turtle husbandry and keeping, as well as a guide to general investigation and diagnostic techniques open to clinicians. The second section provides a clinical guide based on clinical signs and differential diagnoses.

REVIEWS

“In summary, this book is a practical gem, and should become a very useful, well-thumbed addition to the general veterinary practice library. It is mainly aimed at guiding those less experienced with dealing with chelonian patients, but will also act as a useful quick reference for those more familiar with treating these shelled patients.”  (Veterinary Record, 15 March 2014)

“Finally, special mention goes to the brief but clearly illustrated and valuable guide to gender determination, helping to separate Fred from Frederica in the consult room, and making this a handy patient-side reference.”  (BVZS Bulletin, 1 September 2013)
