Principles of Animal Physiology, Second Edition continues to set a new standard for animal physiology books with its focus on animal diversity, its clear foundation in molecular and cell biology, its concrete examples throughout, and its fully integrated coverage of the endocrine system. The book includes the most up-to-date research on animal genetics and genomics, methods and models, and offers a diverse range of vertebrate and invertebrate examples.

As an international forum for hypothesis-driven scientific research, the Journal of Animal Physiology and Animal Nutrition publishes original papers in the fields of animal physiology, biochemistry and physiology of nutrition, animal nutrition, feed technology and preservation (only when related to animal nutrition). Well-conducted scientific work that meets the technical and ethical standards is considered only on the basis of scientific rigor.

Research on farm and companion animals is preferred. Comparative work on exotic species is welcome too. Pharmacological or toxicological experiments with a direct reference to nutrition are also considered. Manuscripts on fish and other aquatic non-mammals with topics on growth or nutrition will not be accepted. Manuscripts may be rejected on the grounds that the subject is too specialized or that the contribution they make to animal physiology and nutrition is insufficient.

Ear, Nose and Throat Diseases of the Dog and Cat offers readers a more detailed view of veterinary otolaryngology than is offered in most general medicine or surgery textbooks. The book is organized into 3 organ-specific sections (Ear, Nose, and Throat), followed by a fourth section that covers common surgical procedures. Each organ-specific section is divided into separate chapters devoted to anatomy and physiology, diagnostic procedures, and common diseases.

This book is not intended to provide readers with a detailed explanation of the electrophysiology and potential variations of arrhythmias or complete review of cardiac pathophysiology. The information presented is basic and geared more for quick reference by primary care veterinarians rather than cardiologists and is comprehensive in this regard. Overall, it is a concise, well-organized basic reference guide for common cardiac emergencies of small animals.

The third edition of Equine Wound Management is an excellent resource for equine clinicians and veterinary students. This textbook offers a review of wound healing physiology and possible complications as well as a comprehensive guide for the treatment and management of many types of wounds. Because wounds are a common ailment seen by equine practitioners, it is critical that a reference on this topic be specific and complete; this book is both. Chapters are organized in several categories such as management of wounds (eg, topical wound care treatments and wound care products, approaches to wound closure, and bandaging and casting techniques), anatomic location of wounds (eg, wounds of the head, wounds of the distal extremities, and wounds of synovial structures), and special considerations (eg, management of severely infected wounds, sarcoid transformation at wound sites, and innovative approaches to wound management). This organization scheme works well, and information is easy to find. The authors state that they intended to provide a reference with both theoretical and practical information, and both areas are addressed. To deliver practical information, an abundance of good-to-high-quality photographs and illustrations with clear descriptions of procedures are provided throughout the text. The illustrations of suture patterns and flap procedures are very informative. New to this edition are highlighted boxes with tips on what to do and what to avoid in various situations, which summarize and emphasize the key points of each section. The book has a companion website that contains case studies, videos, interactive questions and answers, and other resources that will be particularly helpful for veterinary students. The price of this book is comparable to that of other books with a similar scope. It will be a great addition to the reference collection of any equine veterinarian or veterinary student.

The second edition of BSAVA Manual of Wildlife Casualties is a valuable reference for anyone who treats captive or free-ranging wildlife. The text is clear and concise, and the organization and numerous excellent tables facilitate finding information quickly. The manual is divided into 2 sections: general information (eg, basic principles of decision making in wildlife rehabilitation, triage, first aid, initial management in captivity, and preparation for release) and species-specific chapters. The discussion in the first chapter on the ethics of wildlife rehabilitation and the impact of the rehabilitation process on both the individual animal and ecosystem to which it will return will be valuable and instructive for readers who are new to the field. The authors clearly state that all treatment and rehabilitation efforts should first and foremost consider the long-term well-being of the patient. The chapter on triage and initial assessment emphasizes the need to gather as much information as possible, including observation of the animal from a distance, before attempting to capture an injured animal. Also identified are injuries for which euthanasia is advised, with reference to the AVMA Guidelines for the Euthanasia of Animals. One method missing from the list of recommended euthanasia methods is CO2. The authors discuss the importance of appropriate nutrition and housing in both the general and species-specific chapters. Given that the book was written for members of the British Small Animal Veterinary Association, the species-specific chapters naturally cover wildlife found in the United Kingdom. However, that does not detract from the value of this book for readers in other parts of the world because much of the information is applicable to related species. Each species- or taxa-specific chapter provides information on the basic anatomy, physiology, and ecology of the animals being described, followed by a discussion of handling techniques, treatment options, drug dosages, and general guidelines for initial management. Finally, the authors review common diseases and injuries and methods for rearing orphaned and injured juvenile wildlife and provide information on how to avoid the imprinting of those animals on humans.

Despite its title, this book is largely a physiology textbook rather than a clinical handbook. It contains a nice section on exotic animals that includes many images of techniques for venipuncture of the various species. This book would have benefitted from additional descriptions of clinically applicable techniques and case examples, as well as a summary of key points at either the beginning or end of each chapter. Nevertheless, it is an excellent reference for experienced technicians who wish to expand their knowledge and understanding of common acid-base and electrolyte disturbances.
