wish to thank the many persons who have helped in putting this text
together, both in this newly published fourth edition, and in all prior
editions.
Both the publisher and I are indebted to Melanie Berndtson, Wellsboro
Area High School, who, for the fourth edition, co-authored Chapter 5,
entitled "Careers in Small Animal Care," and conducted a thorough review of all
chapters. We also gratefully acknowledge her vision and work on the accompanying workbook. Thank you for offering your valuable insight and expertise.
In addition, I especially want to thank Mary Martha Scott, former
English teacher and librarian at Columbia City High School, Columbia
City, Indiana, for her assistance in checking the manuscript for grammatical
errors and for assisting in locating reference materials.
I want to thank Isabelle Francais for her excellent photographs of many
of the animals found in the book. Without her generous assistance, this book
wouldn't have the exceptional visual element of illustrations that it contains.
Aaron Norman provided the excellent photographs of fish. Chapter 22 is
greatly enhanced because of his photographs.
I want to thank Karen Robbins of the American Fancy Rat and Mouse
Association for providing several of the photographs of rats and mice that
appear in Chapters 12 and 13. I also want to thank Melanie Ribblet of Ears R
Us for the photograph of the Rhinelander rabbit in Chapter 9.
I wish to thank the United States Department of Agriculture for providing
photographs and resource material on diseases.
Dr. Jack L. Albright of Purdue University and William McVay, retired
agriculture teacher at Whitko High School, South Whitley, Indiana, provided
materials and input on animal rights and animal welfare. Cindy Raker, agriculture educator at Carroll High School, Fort Wayne, Indiana, provided me
with her class outline and materials on dogs and cats. It was her material that
I used in my early classes on small animal care.
I wish to thank my former students; the staff of Columbia City High
School, Columbia City, Indiana; and the agriculture educators in Indiana for
their support and encouragement throughout this project, especially during
the first and second editions.
I want to thank Jack Caster, computer coordinator, for his assistance
with word processing and other computer problems during the writing of
the first and second editions.
A special thanks goes to Cengage Learning for seeing a need for a text on
small animal care and giving me an opportunity to provide one. Also to Jennifer
Starr and all the staff at Cengage Learning who had a hand in putting this text
together, I truly appreciate their assistance and patience throughout this project.
