Pathology of Wildlife and Zoo Animals, Second Edition is the much-anticipated update to the leading resource on the study of diseases in non-domestic species. The book offers comprehensive coverage of the pathology of wildlife and zoo species, including a wide scope of animals, disease types and geographic regions. Chapters include information on performing necropsies, proper techniques to meet the specialized needs of forensic cases, laboratory diagnostics, and an introduction to basic principles of comparative clinical pathology. The taxon-based chapters provide information about diseases in related groups of animals and include descriptions of gross and histologic lesions, pathogenesis and diagnostics.

For each group of animals, notable, unique, gross and microscopic anatomical features are provided to further assist the reader in deciding whether differences from the domestic animal paradigm are "normal." Additional online content, which includes text, images and whole scanned glass slides of selected conditions expand the published material thus resulting in a comprehensive approach to the topic.
