Since the publication of the first edition of this book, veterinary care for exotic pets has become increasingly more common. With this increase has come an increased need by veterinarians to use drugs and dosages to effectively treat these pets.

Each section begins with general guidelines that are followed by a table that lists drug dosage and route along with useful comments.
