This book is intended for veterinary students studying parasitology, practising veterinary surgeons, and those in animal science who require information on all aspects of parasitic disease in domestic animals. The text is comprehensive, covering both temperate and tropical zones, and deals with all three aspects of parasitology - helminthology, entomology and protozoology - as well as some blood-borne rickettsial infections traditionally taught in the subject. There are also chapters dedicated to reviews of epidemiology, immunity, anthelmintics, ectoparasiticides and laboratory diagnosis. Because the text is intended for those directly involved in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitic infections of domestic animals, diseases which are common or important are treated in some detail, the less important being discussed more briefly. For the same reason, details of classification and taxonomy have been kept to the minimum necessary to indicate the relationships between the various species and to facilitate their identification.

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.

Recognize and treat the parasites seen in veterinary practice! Diagnostic Parasitology for Veterinary Technicians, 5th Edition features clear and concise discussions of the most commonly encountered internal and external parasites. Chapters are organized by parasite group — including nematodes, cestodes, trematodes, protozoans, arthropods, and leeches — and include a detailed description of the group, with special emphasis on morphology, life cycle, and important parasites. Then in each chapter, material is conveniently organized by host species: dogs, cats, horses, ruminants, swine, birds, lab animals, fish, and reptiles. Written by noted educators Charles Hendrix and Ed Robinson, this full-color, spiral-bound book provides the knowledge that veterinary technicians need to collect samples, perform lab procedures, and communicate with clients and other members of the veterinary team. Clear, concise coverage simplifies information on the most commonly encountered internal and external parasites, preparing you for credentialing exams and the veterinary clinic. More than 470 full-color photos show exactly what ova, adult parasites, and parasitic diseases look like, so you can identify them more easily when viewing lab samples. Step-by-step guidelines in the Laboratory Procedures chapter describe how to gather samples and how to perform the laboratory techniques used in identifying parasites. Emphasis on the zoonotic potential of parasites helps you alert clients and other health care workers to the significance of zoonotic parasites and shows ways in which you can prevent transmission of a zoonotic parasite, condition, or syndrome from animals to humans. Logical chapter organization follows the sequence of parasitology classes, beginning with a basic overview of external parasites, internal parasites, and nematodes, followed by chapters that go into detail of the parasites by host species. An appendix lists the parasites of each species and shows their location in the text, making information easy to find. Heartworm section helps you recognize and treat heartworms with an in-depth discussion of the performance and interpretation of diagnostic tests for this major parasite. Summary tables show how to categorize parasites, and include such categories as body systems affected, taxonomic grouping, host species, and location in host. Table of parasites at the front of the book is arranged by host species and includes page numbers for cross-reference throughout the book. Vet Tech Threads design makes learning easier with chapter outlines, chapter objectives, key terms, and Technician Notes in every chapter. Chapter on terminology familiarizes you with the basic language and classification scheme of parasitology for more effective communication with clients and colleagues. Flash cards on the Evolve companion website help you learn and memorize key facts about the major parasites, including audio pronunciations. Workbook/textbook format provides immediate review tools through matching exercises and questions for thought and discussion at the end of each chapter. NEW case studies provide more opportunities to apply what you have learned, and bring to life a subject that can be dry and difficult. UPDATED information throughout provides the most up-to-date coverage of the parasites most often seen in veterinary practice. NEW! End-of-chapter matching exercises and online activities make study and review easier.

The textbook 'Parasitology in Veterinary Medicine' is based on 'Lehrbuch der Parasitologie für die Tiermedizin' (3rd ed.), published in 2013 by Enke, Germany. Wageningen Academic Publishers presents a revised edition in English, suited both for basic and advanced studies and as reference book for the veterinary practice. Although focused on the European situation, the book also deals with important parasitic diseases occurring in other regions.The main part is organized by parasite groups (protozoa, helminths, arthropoda, etc.). It provides information on the parasites' biology, epidemiology, immunology, pathogenesis, clinical signs, diagnosis, therapy and control. Summaries allow for a quick overview.Another part is arranged according to animal species (cattle, sheep and goats, pigs, horses, dogs and cats, rabbits, poultry, bees). It contains tables listing the parasites of the organ systems and showing antiparasitic drugs. Furthermore, practical instructions on the control of parasitic diseases are given.Further chapters deal with general parasitology, zoonoses, parasites in food, diagnostic procedures, and essentials of therapy and control of parasitoses. A detailed glossary with etymological notes is intended for a better understanding of parasitological terms. The book contains numerous tables and is illustrated with 421 figures, including many instructive drawings of parasite life cycles.
