Welcome to the 5th edition of the Exotic Animal Medicine Formulary! As we know, the medical care of exotic pets has become an integral part of most companion animal practices.
Exotic Animal Formulary 5th Edition PDF
The Exotic Animal Formulary 5th edition, therefore, was compiled to accommodate this rapid growth of exotic animal medicine. For this revision, 29 of the most recognized specialists in our field were invited to contribute; their role was to evaluate published drug dosages and related biologic and medical information and references, and to select those that would be most clinically useful and relevant to the practitioner.
Not only is this edition updated and expanded (now containing 295 tables), but we’ve added a section on “Backyard Poultry and Waterfowl,” in addition to sections on invertebrates, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, sugar gliders, hedgehogs, rodents, rabbits, ferrets, miniature pigs, primates, and wildlife. The “Selected Topics for the Exotic Animal Veterinarian” has also been expanded and now includes information on compounding resources.
Exotic Animal Formulary 5th Edition PDF is not intended to replace existing medical resources or the use of sound medical judgment, but rather to serve as a guide in providing medical care to exotic animals. This formulary assumes that the reader has a reasonable understanding of veterinary medicine. For example, drug indications are generally listed only in unique situations. Supporting tables have been carefully selected to include those topics of major importance in clinical practice.
This book is intended to be a practical, user-friendly, quick reference for veterinary clinicians, students, and technicians working with exotic animals. We hope that you find this formulary and accompanying tables handy to use and that it adds to the quality of the medical care you provide to your exotic animal patients. Because exotic animal practitioners face daily challenges to meet the pharmaceutical and clinical needs of their patients, our hope is that this book will be a valuable tool in helping meet these challenges.
