    See: REVIEW

The most recent Ferrets, Rabbits, and Rodents is especially valuable as it includes a comprehensive drug formulary. Self-Assessment Color Review of Small Mammals, by Susan A. Brown and Karen L. Rosenthal (publisher Iowa State University Press -- 1997) is another book veterinarians may find helpful.
