Dentistry in Rabbits and Rodents is a practical guide aimed at helping clinicians successfully diagnose and treat dental problems in rabbits and rodents within their own surgeries. With over two-thirds of small mammals presenting with tooth related problems, there is great potential to enhance the treatment offered to the owners of these species. Focusing on innovative diagnostics using normal radiographic machines as well as specific positioning techniques, radiographs are presented with reference lines and detailed annotations. Richly illustrated with high quality photographs, pathological findings are described before selection of appropriate therapy and treatment is discussed. Key features include: Covers the dental anatomy and physiology of all small mammal species commonly kept as pets. Intraoral radiography and innovative positioning for imaging the guinea pig and chinchilla dentitions are described, enabling the practitioner to visualize each tooth in detail. Once a diagnosis has been reached, selection of different treatments and the advantages and disadvantages of each surgical technique are discussed. Offers helpful directives for approaching and treating dental disease without the need for referral to a specialist or the use of expensive equipment.

Whether headache, sore throat or sinusitis - most problems that are affecting the head are associated with disorders of the lymph flow. The Spanish dentist Dr. Ernesto Adler published 1973 a book on the subject, a work which was continued by the German ophthalmologist Dr. Hans Lange. Adler and Langer found that these points are particularly suited to support specific areas of lymph drainage. With the elimination of the lymph congestions quite often pain and tension disappear very quickly. About 1980 the dentist Dr . Gleditsch discovered in addition the so-called "Lymphbelt". There, the lymphatic flow can be significantly improved. Even though these reflexology point systems are still relatively unknown in medicine they have proven their value very well. Dear friends of reflexology, thank you for your interest in my reflexology charts which have proven their effectiveness in nearly three decades. The charts of the »maps of health« represent the organs as icons. This offers a symbolic language which allows an orientation at a glance in all reflexology systems. The reflexology charts with their descriptive illustrations provide you with a useful aid for your treatments. Additionally you can use the result sheets for documentation of your experiences Joy and success with reflexology ! Ewald Kliegel
