Dentistry In Rabbits And Rodents 1st Edition

Dentistry in Rabbits and Rodents is a practical guide aimed at helping clinicians successfully diagnose and treat dental problems in rabbits and rodents within their own surgeries. With over two-thirds of small mammals presenting with tooth related problems, there is great potential to enhance the treatment offered to the owners of these species.

Focusing on innovative diagnostics using normal radiographic machines as well as specific positioning techniques, radiographs are presented with reference lines and detailed annotations. Richly illustrated with high quality photographs, pathological findings are described before selection of appropriate therapy and treatment is discussed.

Key features include:

  • Covers the dental anatomy and physiology of all small mammal species commonly kept as pets.
  • Intraoral radiography and innovative positioning for imaging the guinea pig and chinchilla dentitions are described, enabling the practitioner to visualize each tooth in detail.
  • Once a diagnosis has been reached, selection of different treatments and the advantages and disadvantages of each surgical technique are discussed.
  • Offers helpful directives for approaching and treating dental disease without the need for referral to a specialist or the use of expensive equipment.

In conclusion, Dentistry of Rabbits and Rodents provides a clear, thorough and complete overview of the various aspects of rabbit and rodent dentistry.

The core chapters detailing basic anatomy and pathogenesis of dental disease and the treatment of incisor and cheek teeth diseases are of a high standard and contain a great deal of practical and theoretical information. I highly recommend this text for any practitioner wishing to further their knowledge of dentistry of rabbits and rodents.

Overall I am very impressed with the book. It has incredible detail and fantastic photographs, with many excellent suggestions on ways to improve radiographic technique and treatment techniques. The suggestions seem so simple and straightforward, yet have not been commonly used or thought of until now. This book provides much needed detailed, step-by-step information on how to diagnose and treat the most common problems identified in small mammals. This book will change the way I practice rabbit and rodent dentistry, in a good way!

This book is an outstanding work of scholarship. This work represents a significant contribution to the veterinary literature. Veterinarians on VIN ask questions about rabbit and rodent dental issues literally on a daily basis. This book will fill a gigantic void in answering such questions.
