This user-friendly book on pet rabbit health from a caretaker's perspective is written for people with little or no medical or veterinary background. Its goal is to help rabbit owners play a more active, informed role in their rabbit's health care decisions. It should never substitute for a trip to the veterinarian!

The book's predecessor, "Rabbit Health 101," received a favorable review in "Exotic DVM" Veterinary Magazine. The revised edition incorporates feedback from veterinarians across the country and includes the latest information for the new millennium.

Topics include: Choosing and establishing a relationship with a veterinarian Symptoms and safe treatment options for a variety of conditions Diagnostic tests and how to understand what they tell your veterinarian Drugs (prescription, over the counter, and supplements) Alternative medicine Coping with loss Resources and references

Stories and pictures of rabbits from around the world are sprinkled throughout the book, adding personal touches to serious topics. By the time you have read the entire book you will feel that you know Smokey, who inspired the original "Rabbit Health 101," and Murray, who contributed so much to this most recent update.
