The Pink Book is Hillyer and Quesenberry's Ferrets, Rabbits, and
Rodents: Clinical Medicine and Surgery. Currently in press for its
second edition, it is still available from W.B. Saunders. Although
large advances have been made since the original publication,
especially in the area of endocrine disease, it is still probably the
best book available for exotic animal practitioners.
