Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease 2nd Edition

By P. J. Quinn, B. K. Markey, F. C. Leonard, P. Hartigan, S. Fanning, E. S. Fitzpatrick

Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease 2nd Edition PDF reflects the huge advances in the field of cardiothoracic medicine that have taken place over the past ten years. Illustrated throughout, it features contributions from leaders in the fields of cardiology and respiratory disorders from the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States. The approach of the Manual has been remodeled to enhance the practitioner’s access to information.

The Manual begins with a look at the clinical approach to a range of common presenting signs. This is followed by details of diagnostic tests and techniques, including imaging and blood pressure measurement. Therapeutic strategies for these are discussed, and detailed discussions of specific conditions are presented. Useful appendices include a drug formulary and ECG reference ranges

  • Covers every aspect of veterinary microbiology for students in both paraclinical and clinical years;
  • Provides concise descriptions of the groups of micro-organisms, diseases they produce, immunological aspects and a summary of infectious diseases based on their main clinical signs;
  • Diagrams throughout showing the transmission of infection and new chapters on the application of molecular methods, food safety and public health, skin, the respiratory system, cardiology, and the urinary tract.
