    Default Show me your books !

    Okay so with very little to no luck I am unable to find a rehabber near me so I can volunteer and learn , I have contacted Massachusetts Mass wildlife and they emailed me back with links to study guides which I have downloaded, but it is suggested I read other books .
    Are there any rehabbers in Massachusetts here and can you suggest any books and study guides I should get ?

    them pretty fast too. They have a notification list you can get on to
    know when she gets more back in.

    My brother-in-law works for US Fish and Wildlife in western MA. I will reach out to him and see if he knows of any rehabbers you could contact.

    Oh nonononononoo, never! Never should it be more than $100! Someone is trying to make a killing while the book is temporarily unavailable.

    If you go to Chrisís Squirrels and More website she has it listed for $60 and you can put your name on a wishlist there as well.

    They do change stuff in each edition...itís usually dosing recommendation or some other small changes. Iíve only got the 3rd edition but I know others on here have the 1st or 2nd edition, so itíll be interesting to hear what they have to say.

    Likely the same greedy azz type that were hoarding toilet paper and asking $10.00 a roll.

    I agree with step. If she has one left, get it.
    Who knows how much the 4th edition will be.
    The meds have changed a little, but you can
    still go with Edition 3. Most people will still be
    using whichever edition they have. If you need help with dosing, we
    will help you.
