Donald Broom is an English biologist and Emeritus professor of animal welfare at Cambridge University. Sentience the ability to feel, perceive and experience is central to the animal welfare debate as it raises the question of whether animals experience suffering in life and death. This book explores and answers these questions in an objective way, based on the latest research and empirical evidence.
A qualified neterinary nurse, Stephanie Hedges has worked in small animal general practices, orthopaedic and dental referral, and emergency and critical care practices in both the private and charity sectors. Her book provides quick reference materials and practical canine behaviour resources to meet the needs of the general practice nurse or technician.
Marit Emilie Buseth is an advisor and speaker on rabbit behaviour and welfare. Co-author, Richard Saunders, is Resident in Rabbit and Zoo Medicine, Langford Veterinary Hospital, University of Bristol and has been registered as a recognised RCVS specialist in Zoo and Wildlife Medicine, one of only 18 people in the world. Rabbits are extremely popular pets, but misconceptions about their care and behaviour are widespread. This book is an essential, thorough and practical guide to understanding and caring for rabbits.
BSAVA exists to promote excellence in small animal practice through education and science. CABI teamed up with BSAVA to offer members complimentary access to VetMed Resource, the most comprehensive online tool for veterinarians. Take a look at CABI’s VetMed Resource on the BSAVA website.
