I'm looking for a good book on rabbits health and so on and I seem to remember that lots of people on here have a big book that they said was good, I remember people posting pictures of their bunnies reading book:?

Anybody know which book I'm talking about, or have I gone mad? :? :p
Or anybody recomend some good rabbit health books?:)

Thanks

So do I, but I guess it depends on what you want. The second one is way cheaper which is obviously a big plus, but it assumes a much higher initial level of knowledge. It's mostly lots of bullet points of symptoms, possible causes and treatments, whereas the first one gives a lot more explanation and text on all of the 'whys' and 'hows' as well as the 'what', if you see what I mean...

Anyone have this or any opinions on it?

i would dearly like to add this one tho
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Notes-on-Rabbit-Internal-Medicine/dp/B000VZVVFC/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&qid=1293750751&sr=8-13

richard saunders is based at bristol bunny clinic..hes been so helpful to consult with our vets via xrays..necropsy results...and meds and right dosage for the coccidia that was in dazy-maes liver and bile duct to help her sister and our two boy buns by giving them baycox.

hes faxed a copey of a paper he had printed on instestinal coccidia...i asked my vet and she sent me a copy too..knowing how interested i was:oops:

ooh forgot..we have this one too
http://www.amazon.co.uk/House-Rabbit-Handbook-Live-Urban/dp/0940920174/ref=pd_rhf_shvl_30

this is the book you will more often than not see in a vets consult room

some vets have access to this one

but pricewise and normal owner speak..then i recommend the first two thoroughly....the houserabbit handbook i got from the rwa site a few years back now..but look for it on ebay etc.

I have these 2....the first one is great - but medical terms etc
