This 176-page title is the only pet owner/breeder reference on health and diseases in reptiles and amphibians in captivity, published in Australia. Written by practising exotic veterinarians, Dr Brendan Carmel and Dr Robert Johnson, all aspects regarding the captive care of snakes, pythons, lizards, turtles and frogs are presented in simple-to-follow layout. 

The 240 colour images show examples of typical health problems to assist the herpitologist in recognising signs as well as information about the treatment or action to take to rectify or reduce the spread of disease and support the reptile/amphibian back to good health.
