Handbook of Wildlife Chemical Immobilization

By Kreeger, Terry J., Arnemo, Jon M., Caulkett N., Hampton J. & Meyer L.


Handbook of Wildlife Chemical Immobilization is designed for field use and will act as a rapid reference for those faced with the challenge of chemically immobilizing a wild and/or uncooperative animal.

This is the sixth edition of the Handbook of Wildlife Chemical Immobilization. The Handbook is used worldwide and because of this international distribution, three authors have been added to the original two authors (Kreeger and Arnemo): Drs. Nigel Caulkett of Canada, Jordan Hampton of Australia, and Leith Meyer of South Africa. These highly experienced and well-published individuals (all representing 193 references in the Handbook) add their regional knowledge and insights to this edition. The Handbook covers legalities of drug possession and use; types of drugs used for animal capture; equipment used for animal capture; animal capture procedures and techniques; animal medical treatment; and human emergency medicine, supported by over 2,750 references.
