The recipient of much praise and acclaim, Veterinary Parasitology is widely considered to be the definitive veterinary parasitology reference for practitioners and students alike. This Fourth Edition has been developed and enhanced into a two-part reference to reflect recent advances in the field, modern teaching practice, and updated parasite taxonomic classification systems. Part One contains expanded individual parasite descriptions using current taxonomic status within three new chapters on Helminthology, Protozoology and Entomology. Further updated chapters are provided on: The laboratory diagnosis of parasitism, Antiparasitics, The epidemiology of parasitic diseases, and Host resistance to parasitic diseases. Host species chapters have been retained and expanded and are found in Part Two of the edition. KEY FEATURES Tailored for those directly involved in the diagnosis, treatment and control of parasitic diseases of domestic animals Compatible with the diversity of current parasitology teaching modules – both for teaching parasite systematics and diseases on a host-organ basis Offers the most detailed parasite descriptions available today for teachers, research groups, veterinarians in practice and in government service, and others involved in aspects of parasitic disease Thoroughly revised and restructured to reflect the most up-to-date advancements in the field, Veterinary Parasitology, Fourth Edition, enhances its stellar reputation as the gold standard reference text for the global veterinary profession.
Essentials of Veterinary Parasitology provides an up-to-date resource for students and practicing veterinarians on how to recognize, diagnose, and treat parasitic diseases in livestock and companion animals. Featuring full-color illustrations and a user-friendly layout, the book begins with a section dedicated to the fundamentals of veterinary parasitology and ends with a section on the prevention of parasitic infections, entailing recent developments in the understanding of the pathogenesis and control of parasitic diseases. In between, there are sections on important parasitic infections in livestock, organized by the parasite agents - helminths, protozoa, and arthropods - plus a section on diagnostic parasitology. This book is an essential reference for veterinary students, practicing veterinarians, and researchers in the field of parasitology.
Principles of Veterinary Parasitology is a student-friendly introduction to veterinary parasitology. Written primarily to meet the immediate needs of veterinary students, this textbook outlines the essential parasitological knowledge needed to underpin clinical practice. Conceptual relationships between parasitic organisms, their biology and the diseases they cause are clearly illustrated. Help boxes and practical tips are included throughout alongside a wealth of colour photographs, drawings and life-cycle diagrams. Organised taxonomically with additional host-orientated chapters and focussing on parasites that commonly cause animal or zoonotic disease, welfare problems or economic losses, students worldwide will benefit from this straightforward and easy to comprehend introduction to veterinary parasitology. Key features include: An easy to navigate textbook, providing information essential for clinical studies Full colour throughout, with photographs, diagrams, life-cycles and help boxes for visual learners A companion website including a pronunciation guide, self-assessment questions and further reading lists
Veterinary Parasitology Reference Manual, Fifth Edition is apractical, thorough, bench top reference for basic diagnosticveterinary parasitology. The manual provides pertinent informationon parasite life cyles, importance, location in the host, zoonoticpotential, current literature, diagnosis, and treatment. It alsoincludes step-by-step instructions for the most common diagnosticprocedures used in routine veterinary practice. Sections are organized by animal host species, including dogs;cats; cattle, sheep and goats; llamas; horses; pigs; birds; ratites(ostriches, emus, and cassowaries); and laboratory animals, as wellas wildlife, reptiles, marine mammals, and humans. There is asection in which common artifacts found in fecal samples arepresented, and the last section includes conversion tables and alist of abbreviations. Features of the Fifth edition include: * updated and enhanced references * information on new drugs * improved section on parasites of marine mammals * sections on parasites of laboratory animals and humans * over 500 photographs and figures Readers will find this to be an easily accessible and accurateresource for information about parasites in a variety of animals -wild, domestic, common and exotic.
This symposium volume considers some of the recent developments in veterinary parasitology. The book includes various papers that discuss such topics as the significance of epidemiology; the current position of vaccine application and development; the immunological responses of sheep to infection with Haemonchus contortus and cattle to infections with gastrointestinal nematodes; drug resistance in veterinary parasites; the possibility of controlling nematode infections by using predacious micro fungi; the impact of nutrition in pathogenesis of bovine trypanosomiasis; and the status of the cattle nematode Onchocerca ochengi as a model for studies on human onchocerciasis.
This outstanding new edition has been thoroughly revised with hundreds of new illustrations to augment text. Designed for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and allied office personnel, this reference provides a concise, clear discussion of parasites and how to diagnose them. Sampling techniques are included, with step-by-step guidelines for analysis. Spanish version also available, ISBN: 84-8174-392-5
