Good Book! 8 Mar 2010
By T. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was perfect for me. I recently discovered issues with parasites in my reptiles. After purchasing this book my understanding of parasites and the treatment of these creatures grew incredibly. The recommended drugs table is one of the best features inside. Not only will this book help you identify parasites in but it list primary and even some secondary medications to use. Explanations of how these medications work and their dosages are given as well. This is a good book for anyone wanting to learn more about treating parasites in reptiles. The only thing that is missing is the life cycles of the parasites mentioned. However some parasite life cycles aren't completely understood be science.

Great book, had accident during shipping? 18 Sep 2012
By Wren152 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book itself is GREAT, and now that I have it, I can't wait to start testing my reptiles for parasites, because I'll actually be able to identify them.
However, I think the package itself had an accident during shipping. Halfway down the spine is a DEEP crack, and I get the feeling that the book got almost folded in two during transport. The book is otherwise kinda wrinkly, but it still opens, and it still reads fine. So all in all, I don't honestly mind. It's kinda like it has a ripped hole in the middle of the spine, but it's still legible, and I honestly don't think it's the seller's fault. I really blame USPS on this one, because I think this would have taken a lot of force to do, since this is a thin but sturdy book. And yeah, I guess the packaging itself could have been stronger, to protect the book better, but I still think that the lightweight package was better than the other, smaller book I got from somewhere else that got shipped in a HUGE box full of evil packing peanuts!
I don't really have any problem with this book's condition. I've got it sitting under some other heavy books to flatten it out, so it should be fine!
