Infectious Diseases Of Dromedary Camels: A Concise Guide

By Abdelmalik I. Khalafalla and Mansour F. Hussein

Infectious Diseases of Dromedary Camels, A Concise Guide PDF serves as a comprehensive yet concise reference guide reviewing the latest knowledge on bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic infectious diseases of old world dromedary camels. Pathogen etiology, clinical manifestations and diagnostic techniques are provided for each pathogen and disease prevention and treatment strategies are discussed.

Despite a steady increase in camel husbandry worldwide, the pathologies of camel diseases are still relatively under investigated in comparison to other livestock and companion animals. With an ongoing worldwide prevalence increase, infectious diseases are a constant threat to animal and human health. In recent years dromedary camels have become a focus of increasing public health interest since they have been considered the direct source of zoonotic transmission of MERS-CoV to humans. Along these lines, the book covers topics related to zoonotic infections associated with camels.

This book offers a valuable source of information for veterinary clinicians, researchers, graduate students, veterinary technicians and interested laymen.
