Although the mortality rate in captive reptiles has decreased significantly, parasitism remains the third leading cause of reptile death. In this newly updated edition, Roger J. Klingenberg, DVM, presents essential information on preventing reptile parasites as well as treating your pet if it develops a problem. This guide details the symptoms of external parasites, such as mites and ticks, and internal parasites, such as Cryptosporidium and protozoa. With helpful lists and charts, Understanding Reptile Parasites pulls together all the useful information and presents it in a way that makes sense. Be a responsible keeper, and add this key volume to your Herpetocultural Library.
