Bat Care Guidelines: A Guide to Bat Care for Rehabilitators

This is the second edition of the guidelines which was published in September 2016. These guidelines provide veterinary practices and new rehabilitators with practical advice that can be used when treating bats brought into their care. The guidelines contain basic information on all aspects of a bat's rehabilitation and refer the reader to further sources for a more detailed explanation.
