Dentistry in Rabbits and Rodents

Dentistry in Rabbits and Rodents 
By Estella Böhmer
2015 Edition
Is a practical guide aimed at helping clinicians successfully diagnose and treat dental problems in rabbits and rodents within their own surgeries.

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.
