This is a great book but I do wish there were more species-specific pictures of parasite ova (eggs). Some of the parasite eggs are quite ambiguous although this just might be an issue with the state-of-the-field. I do wish there were more and updated treatment suggestions for some of the parasites. Some, like coccidia, are generally treated with 1-2 treatments of newer coccidiacidal meds like Baycox rather than extended courses like albon. There is a bit of ego inherent in Roger's writing that I also found a little obvious and that caught me off-guard.
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.
The book has many colorful, detailed, relevant, and described photos, tables, and texts of the different internal and external parasites, their consequential pathology, and appropriate drugs with doses. It is a must for any reptile veterinarian and a good way for clients to "double check" their exotic vet. It would be helpful to any herp owner in understanding but probably not for curing any parasitic problems because most parasites require treatment with prescribed medication.
