"The stated goal of the book aims to provide an easy to use reference that adds to improving the welfare of rabbit and rodent species. That achievement is reached with this 5th edition; having added over 200 very informative photos, more pertinent case reports, expanded coverage with additional disease descriptions, and wonderful easy-to-read tables. An instant flip of the pages and the reader will connect with this texts ability to inform and teach." (The Vin Book Reviews, 25 February 2011)

"My overall impression is that this is an indispensable text for practitioners in referral practice or studying towards a higher qualification, but would not be the text of choice for the average general practitioner." (Veterinary Record, 19 March 2011)

The first edition of Harkness and Wagner`s Biology and Medicine of Rabbits and Rodents was published in 1977. Since then, this has become a respected textbook that is commonly found on the bookshelves of people whose profession or hobby involves rodents and rabbits.... Despite the fact that it is now an extensively illustrated reference, this comprehensive text remains an affordable paperback that should be of broad interest." (JAVMA, September 2010)

"This continues to be a strong introductory text for those caring for rodents and rabbits. The organization of the text facilitates the rapid development of differential diagnoses and performance of general biomethodology when caring for patients." (JAALAS, July 2010)

"The fifth updated edition of Harkness and Wagner`s Biology and Medicine of Rabbits and Rodents is a `must` for any library strong in small mammal husbandry and health. From lab animal medicine and pet practice to diagnosis, case studies, and clinical assessments of rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, and more, this reference is a key `must` for practicing clinicians and vet students alike." (The Midwest Book Review, June 2010)
