Description

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.

"New to this updated edition are new approaches to teaching the science, detailed parasite descriptions and a new structure that lends to the reference's use in the clinic or in a classroom." (California Bookwatch 2016)

"anyone who works or has an interest in veterinary parasitology should consider having this resource at their disposal." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 2016)

"This book makes a useful contribution to the veterinary parasitology literature and is a useful reference book. It should find a place in most vet school libraries and specialist referral clinics." (Veterinary Record 2016)

"Filled with discussions of costs, immunology, clinical signs and pathology, and good-quality color photos throughout, nothing currently on the market even begins to approach Veterinary Parasitoloy in thoroughness and coverage." (Donovan's literary services 2016)


"This is a well-written and well-organized book. It provides students, veterinarians, and scientists with an invaluable guide to understanding the characteristic features, epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitic helminths, protozoa, and arthropods of veterinary significance." (Doody Enterprises 2016)

"The 4th edition of Veterinary parasitology will be a useful addition to the libraries of veterinary  parasitology diagnostic and reference laboratories, veterinary parasitology research groups and to those teaching parasitology to veterinary students." (Australian Veterinary Journal 7 July 2017)
