Dr. Kohler presents clear, basic information on how to care for amphibians and reptiles, and he draws extensively on his experience as a veterinarian. He describes general diagnostic techniques - parasitological, bacteriological, mycological, and virological - as well as x-ray, ultrasonics and endoscopy. There is a section on proper care and housing for these animals, and the author stresses the importance of providing the right conditions for them, which will contribute greatly toward keeping them healthy. Dr. Kohler also supplies detailed descriptions of the major diseases that affect these animals, making diagnosis and decisions about the correct therapy easier. Tips on how to handle emergencies and give first aid are also provided. The book is a valuable guide for both veterinarians and hobbyists.
