Bringing together a globally diverse range of timely topics related to zoo and wild animals, Fowler’s Zoo and Wild Animal Medicine, Volume 9 is an invaluable tool for any student looking to work directly with wildlife and zoo animals. The text’s user-friendly format guides students through biology, anatomy, and special physiology; reproduction; restraint and handling; housing requirements; nutrition and feeding; surgery and anesthesia; diagnostics, and therapeutics for each animal. Two new co-editors and a globally diverse group of expert contributors each lend their expertise on a wide range of new topics — including a new section on emerging wildlife diseases that covers topics like MERS, Equine Herpesviruses, and Ebola in great apes. Other new topics integrated into this ninth volume include: stem cell therapy in zoo medicine, cardiac disease in great apes, disease risk assessment in field studies, Tasmanian devil tumors, and the latest information on the elephant herpes virus. With its synthesized coverage of emerging trends, treatment protocols, and diagnostic updates new to the field, Fowler’s Volume 9 is a reference you don’t want your students to be without.

    • Current therapy format ensures that each CT volume in the series covers all new topics that are relevant at the time of publication.
