Review

The third edition of the Exotic Animal Formulary follows the first two editions admirably, adding content while updating the tables to include the most recent data available in the world of veterinary drug therapy for exotic (nontraditional) pets. Dr. Carpenter has again presented the veterinary community with a reference that is a must-have for all veterinarians who treat (or who might treat) exotic pets in their practice.

The new edition sports a few differences from the previous two-including a more user-friendly (and more durable) cover, 7 additional tables, and 22 additional appendices.

The book is easy to use, with each chapter or section following the same basic outline.

Overall, the Exotic Animal Formulary is an excellent reference and needs to be in the library of every veterinarian who sees (or who might see) exotic pets. The review of the previous edition of the book...was correct; this text, in its latest manifestation, is a must-have for all veterinarians and students who actively pursue or occasionally treat exotic patients.


Irish Veterinary Journal, Vol. 60 No. 2

Every veterinary surgeon treating exotic pets needs a good formulary so this third edition of Carpenter's Exotic Animal Formulary is very welcome. Every section follows a logical sequence listing comprehensive tables of antimicrobials, anti-parasitics, anaesthetics, emergency drug, vitamins and hormones. It is very up-to-date in listing drug doses for newer exotic pets and even includes the latest chemotherapy and neubulising protocols for many species.

Exotic animal medicine is a rapidly expanding field and newer drugs and dosage rates are being adjusted to practical use all the time. Due to the paucity of pharmokinetic studies in these species, this formulary can however only aim to be a quick reference guide for vets in practice. Although most drugs dosages listed are only based on empirical data, observations and anecdotal experience, they are at least backed up by an extensive reference list at the end of each section.

This formulary also contains a wealth of useful biological and medical information. Each section has appendices with extensive charts of normal blood parameters of common species, venipuncture sites, recommended diets, differential diagnosis and medical protocols for common conditions.

In all, this manual is an excellent user-friendly reference and is an essential requirement for any veterinary surgeon seeing exotic pets on a regular basis.

Format:Paperback
The KState crew does it again... pocket pet drugs galore from the pocket pet Gods. This nice little book took a while to come out, but it was worth waiting for. The book is extremely comprehensive and well referenced, easy to use and gives you multiple options on the different treatment regimes. However, there are some misprints on drug dosages which the acute veterinarian will pick up, so be careful... All in all, you must buy this book!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exotic pet owners need this book, too July 22 2002
Format:Paperback
I'm not a vet, nor in the veterinary field. I'm the owner of (or slave to, if you prefer) several species of exotic pets. I bought this book because I saw it in my vets' office, and thought it would be a good way to learn more. Indeed it is. I'm lucky, in that my vets happen to be extremely good exotics vets, but many people live in places where the only vets are cat-and-dog vets. If you own a guinea pig or rabbit, getting it treated by a cat-and-dog vet can be chancy.
This book will help the pet owner double-check the advice of cat-and-dog vets they've asked to try to treat their hedgehogs or ferrets. It has other uses for pet owners, as well; the chapters for each animal also contain concise summaries of dietary needs for the animals. For some species, where commercial all-in-one pellets are still hard to find, the suggestions for constructing a balanced diet out of more readily available foods will be quite useful.
Every pet mammal gets mites (sigh). (I will admit to being a mammal and bird person. I have no idea whether reptiles can get mites or lice of any sort.) It's nice to have a book available telling you whether ivermectin is safe for your pet, and which solution and dilution is most commonly used for that species. Seeing what medicines are used for which diseases and parasites also can give you an idea of what diseases to watch out for in your pet. Since almost all dosages are based on weight, the book also serves as a reminder that weighing your pet regularly is an important way to keep track of its health.

Last but not least in importance for the pet owner, this book is less expensive than many other veterinary books, so that if you only have limited resources in which to obtain more information about your pet, this book won't put as big a dent in them as, say, some of the textbooks which include photos of surgical procedures. If you want to be the best pet owner that your pet can have, and be able to comprehend the advice your vet gives you, and discuss choices with him or her in an informed manner, this book is an excellent resource.
