abstract
"Laboratory Animal Medicine, Third Edition, is a fully revised publication from the American College of Laboratory Medicine's acclaimed blue book series. It presents an up-to-date volume that offers the most thorough coverage of the biology, diseases, health, and care of laboratory animals. Laboratory Animal Medicine is organized by species, with new inclusions of chinchillas, birds, and program and employee management, facility design, gnotobiology, and engineering, and is written and edited by known experts in the fields. Users will find gold-standard guidance on the practice and principles of laboratory animal science, as well as valuable information that applies across all of the biological and biomedical sciences that utilize laboratory animals." --Back cover
