Jan Hnzdo is the medical director of two animal hospitals in Prague (Czech Rep.) that specialize in surgery and the treatment of exotic species. A large number of the exotic animal patients are reptiles. Nikola Pantchev from VetMed Lab Ludwigsburg (Germany) is one of the leading parasitologists in Europe for exotic species; this has been demonstrated in numerous publications. This book is the most up-to-date compendium on chelonian diseases, including their diagnosis and treatment.
