5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for Snake owners Nov. 27 2012
This inexpensive little reference book is very well written and will be of interest to all who care for snakes. As a new snake owner I found lots of very important information, however this book would also be helpful to long-time snake owners or to take along to a vet who may not be all that familiar with snake illnesses and diseases. At the back is a reference chart outlining what to do when you have a snake that is ill along with suggestions for medications and their dosages by weight. Excellent photographs throughout thoroughly illustrate the information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource... March 26 2014
By J. Hays - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
...from a great vet and excellent herpetologist. John Rossi is THE herp vet of the Southeast, and certainly in Florida. I've had the good fortune of living near his practice in Jacksonville, FL and he's always helpful.

It has an amazing amount of information on diseases in snakes and how to prevent common problems that create diseases and infections when keeping snakes in captivity.
4.0 out of 5 stars Snake Health May 2 2013
By Rachel Higgins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book covered in depth all information a snake keeper would need on health problems and had very good suggestions on solving various problems. It also had good suggestions on preventative check-ups (such as checking for bacteria overgrowth when the snake is stressed to prevent a disease from developing). It was written in friendly, non-veterinarian terms while still being professional and descriptive of problems, causes and solutions.
