Louise Ash, Veterinary Times –
‘I think the author most certainly achieved what she set out to do, and more. It fits wonderfully in its field and, after reading it, I am more confident to conduct a behavioural consult for a rabbit… I would recommend this book to any veterinary professional seeing a lot of rabbits and for those wanting to familiarise themselves with husbandry and welfare.’
