"This is a classic work and the best text on rabbits available. All persons with an interest in biologic aspects, diseases, (especially noteworthy), and use of rabbits in research will find this work a most valuable addition to their reference shelf."

"This book is a very valuable addition to the ACLAM series, and to the available literature on rabbits. It will be an invaluable resource, and will soon be as indispensable as the rabbits themselves."
"The Second Editionis a welcome publication for veterinarians, biologists, and researchers who require information on a variety of topics to domestic lagomorphs... This book was long overdue, and it provides a valuable update on a variety of topics related to this species. The text contains a wealth of information in updated form, the figures re of good quality, and the written material has been provided by experts who are well qualified to cover their particular area."
"...this new edition continues a worthy ACLAM tradition of providing comprehensive resource information on the specialty of laboratory animal science and medicine. It should become a standard reference text for all those involved in the study, care, and use of rabbits."
