"Exotic Animal Laboratory Diagnosis is an excellent textbook for veterinary practitioners who treat exotic animals or wildlife. It is also a beneficial resource for professionals who specialize in veterinary diagnostic testing, including clinical pathologists.... This book is moderately priced, but I consider it a worthwhile investment and excellent addition to the library of any practitioner interested in exotic animal or wildlife medicine. It is a practical, user-friendly, comprehensive, and relevant reference." - JAVMA | SEP 15, 2020 | VOL 257 | NO. 6
