This current edition of Reptile Medicine and Surgery was conceived during the 2011 North American Veterinary Conference in the speaker ready room at the Marriott World Center. Doug Mader approached Steve Divers and asked “What do you think about co-editing a new edition of Reptile Medicine and Surgery with me?” Steve, without really thinking it through, responded, “Great, count me in!”
It’s amazing how a brief moment of excitement starts something that consumes a lot of your time for the foresee-able future. Later that week, we talked it over and sat down with Penny Rudolph of Elsevier to discuss the idea. It quickly became apparent that the vast majority of the content within the second edition was still as relevant today as it was when it was first published in 2006. Therefore, this new book could not be a replacement but rather a companion to that second edition, hence the Current Therapy concept. Current Therapy in Reptile Medicine and Surgery should, most definitely, sit right alongside the second edition on your bookshelf—if you don’t have a second edition then your herpetologic library will remain incomplete.
