The idea of this thread is for people to provide links/quotes to/from any books, publications or websites that cover medicine in gastropods, specifically anything that could be useful information for treatment.
Some of this information may be grusome so please be prepared for detailed information and possible disection images on links (please put appropriate warnings on any links).
Some of this information may be quite technical, not in english or contain links to publiations that require specific access (such as university log in ID's) but the idea is to gather as much info as we can even if this means some links are inaccessible to others, then key nformation will be isolated from those publications that can be used and read by all.
Plagerism: please be aware of the protential of this from copying and pasting large sections of text, a few quotes from a publication is fine with a reference (a link will do) as is writing some of the info in you own words (but again providing a reference). Just dont copy and paste most of the text from somewhere and always make sure to provide a link to where you got the info
I recently found out about the book "Invertebrate medicine" editied by Lewbart
You can find a preview of it on google books and quite a lot of the gastropod section. see here: *warning graphic images, tecnical information* books.google.co.uk/books?id=NaAMh8sEU4oC&printsec=frontcover#v=onepage&q=prolapse&f=false (click on the page number to see more pages). It includes some info on analgesia, ethanasia and shell repair. it may include more info which is not shown on the preview. It also provides some useful references that may well be worth investigating.
Hopefully i or others will pull out some key parts of this book and publication links at a later date
P.s. the book itself is rather expensive (but sadly not unusual for technical publications) but it may well be worth keeping a look out incase it turns up in a charity shop somewhere (especially specailist ones) you never know.
