"The new edition continues the tradition of being one of the best references for laboratory animal veterinarians, graduate and post-graduate students, and researchers with interest in the biology, breeding, care, use, and diseases of the laboratory rat. The veterinary pathologist engaged in laboratory animal diagnostics, biomedical research, or toxicologic testing will find chapters on clinical pathology, infections, parasitic disease, neoplastic disease, metabolic and miscellaneous disease, gerontology and age-associated lesions, and models of disease to be quick aids on significant issues without having to resort to more narrow but more in-depth alternative pathology references...the second edition is worthy of its predecessor and remains probably the best all-around reference for the laboratory rat." --Dr. J. T. Yarrington, Vet Path Services, Inc., Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S.A.
"The purpose is to serve as a resource for those using rats in research and those charged with the care of laboratory rats. This book is greatly needed and meets the college's objectives...This book is an important resource for biomedical researchers and those involved in the care of the labroatory rat...the strengths on this [edition] are its broad contemproary coverage, strong referencing and excellent index. This second edition has been eagerly awaited because of major developments in the field since the first edition 26 years ago." --DOODY'S
