Herd/Flock Health and Medicine for the Exotic Animal Practitioner
Shangzhe Xie, Editor

As exotic animal medicine progresses, the demand from clients owning large groups of exotic animals, whether due to their personal or business interests, will increase. Most exotic animal practitioners have good training and fundamentals in small animal medicine, which focuses on the individual patient. Herd and flock medicine requires a different approach, with many principles derived from production animal medicine. Furthermore, as the level of veterinary medicine and standard of care for exotic animals increase, antemortem diagnoses and individualized medication/treatment regimens can allow for earlier diagnoses of disease in a herd/flock, leading to better treatment outcomes.
