"Short of acquiring clinical books featuring only a single species, this book is thorough enough that it would be a valuable addition to the library of any veterinary professional interested in exotic small mammals." (National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America , 2011)

"Overall, this book is a great source of information for veterinary technicians and assistants who frequently work with small mammals. The text is very easy to use, and could also be used to provide information to clients who need help with husbandry. It is small, concise, and to the point without a bunch of statistics or unnecessary text to muddle through. This text would be a great addition to any general or exotic practice, or for the veterinary technician's library. Veterinarians and other staff members may also benefit from having this book on their shelf of easy-to-reach reference material." (VSPN, June 2010)

"There is certainly something for anyone with an interest in exotics to be found within these pages, and it will be most useful for veterinary nurses and pet owners. It should be judged as an excellent starter guide for exotic veterinarians, with good coverage of basic procedures and disease processes, thus meriting its place on most veterinary practice bookshelves." (Veterinary Record, November 2010)

This is a useful book for those in the veterinary field. It provides a great deal of information for various species in a well-organized manner." (Doody's, October 2010)

"Exotic Small Mammal Care and Husbandry is a fine basic reference for handling and treating small animals in the vet clinic. It covers everything from mice and hamsters to ferrets and focuses on housing, nutrition and diseases. Basic anatomy and preventative care are included in a fine easy approach many a pet owner will also appreciate." (The Midwest Book Review, June 2010)
