Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Infectious Diseases of the Horse" report to their offering.
A clinician and a pathologist have collaborated to produce this thorough and balanced account of infectious diseases affecting horses. The book evaluates the latest diagnostic aids, including rapid developments in molecular biology, while emphasising that they are no substitute for clinical observation and skills.
The majority of equine infectious diseases caused by microbes and parasites are covered - bacterial, viral, protozoan, fungal, ectoparasitic and helminthic. A section on differential diagnosis is then provided to support clinical decision-making, followed by a review of current thinking on the zoonotic aspects of equine infectious diseases, and a guide to clinical pathology to underline its diagnostic importance.
Infectious Diseases of the Horse is illustrated throughout by a wealth of clinical and microscopic images, and is of value to all veterinary practitioners, scientists, students, technicians and nurses working with horses.
