Foreword

The continues to be a flagship publication of the BSAVA. The first was published over 20 years ago, and each new edition brings innovation to enhance its relevance to clinical practice. Practices are seeing an increasing number of ‘exotic pet’ consultations across a wide range of species and this edition of the Formulary reflects that change and the importance BSAVA places on evidence based medicine in veterinary practice.

There are few licensed products for the treatment of non-traditional companion animal species and this Formulary draws upon a wide range of published sources and expert opinion of common drug usages to provide a single referenced source of drug dosages across the range of small mammal, bird, amphibian, fish and reptile species. A particularly useful addition is the appendix detailing sedation and chemotherapy protocols for non-traditional companion animal species.

This Formulary will continue to be regularly updated alongside its canine and feline counterpart and provides not only a great new benefit for BSAVA members, but also a method of dissemination of high quality information to the entire veterinary profession. This Formulary has been compiled by some of the leading species experts - another BSAVA product created by the profession for the profession.

The , although primarily designed for the UK market, is held in high regard around the world. It is no mean task to bring together information from such a diverse range of species and the Editorial Panel and Anna Meredith are to be congratulated on what they have achieved. I am sure the will prove another essential addition to the practice library.
