Biology and Diseases of the Ferret, Third Edition has
been thoroughly revised and updated to provide a current,
comprehensive reference on the ferret. Encyclopedic in scope, it is
the only book to focus on the characteristics that make the ferret
an important research animal, with detailed information on
conditions, procedures, and treatments. Offering basic information
on biology, husbandry, clinical medicine, and surgery, as well as
unique information on the use of ferrets in biomedical research,
Biology and Diseases of the Ferret is an essential resource
for investigators using ferrets in the laboratory and for companion
animal and comparative medicine veterinarians.


The Third Edition adds ten completely new chapters, covering
regulatory considerations, black-footed ferret recovery, diseases
of the cardiovascular system, viral respiratory disease research,
morbillivirus research, genetic engineering, hearing and auditory
function, vision and neuroplasticity research, nausea and vomiting
research, and lung carcinogenesis research.  Additionally, the
anesthesia, surgery, and biomethodology chapter has been subdivided
into three and thoroughly expanded. The book also highlights the
ferret genome project, along with the emerging technology of
genetically engineered ferrets, which is of particular importance
to the future of the ferret as an animal model in research and will
allow the investigation of diseases and their genetic basis in a
small, easily maintained, non-rodent species.
