Rezension“A significant contribution to wildlife disease investigations. No other book on animal restraint is so taxonomically broad … .No other book on restraint has so many pictures, tables, drawings and graphics of the equipment, techniques, mechanics, anatomy, physiology, and results and consequences of restraint and handling as this one. It delves into some subjects not covered elsewhere and is, on the whole, heavily referenced.... this book has good basic information on physical restraint tools, methods, and concerns on a breadth of species and some good basic information on chemical restraint. These are important considerations for the student and for people with relatively little experience in the field, and it could save your life or career … .It is a classic everyone should have or read and one of the many legacy contributions Dr. Fowler has made to zoo and wildlife medicine.” - Journal of Wildlife Diseases, October 2008

“An in-depth resource of scientific and practical information concerning the most effective ways to handle, hold, and restrain all sorts of animals from dogs and cats to mice, chickens, cattle, snakes, and even exotic creatures like tigers or elephants. Featuring meticulous descriptions and crystal-clear photography on virtually every page, Restraint and Handling of Wild and Domestic Animals is an utterly invaluable resource for veterinarians, farmers, zookeepers, and any scientist or researcher who works with animals. Worthy of the absolute highest recommendation for its depth of professional experience and its highly accessible instructional style … .An absolute must-have.” - Library Bookwatch, November 2008

“The third updated edition of Restraint and Handling of Wild and Domestic Animals is a 'must' for any college-level collection strong in veterinary sciences as well as for practicing vets. It offers an introduction to the basics of animal restraint and reviews techniques for both wild and domestic animals. This new edition provides the latest research and focuses on techniques and safety for both handlers and animals.” - Midwest Book Review, January 2009
