Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease

Veterinary microbiology is one of the core subjects for veterinary students. This standard textbook covers every aspect of veterinary microbiology for students both in paraclinical and clinical years. The clinical applications for farm and companion animals are emphasized according to their relevance to veterinarians. In each case the text features:

  1. a concise description of the group of microorganisms;
  2. an account of the diseases they produce;
  3. an exploration of immunological aspects; and
  4. a summary of infectious diseases based on their main clinical signs.

Unlike other microbiology books, Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease gives equal weight to bacteriology, mycology, and virology (an area often neglected). The text is written by experienced teachers and illustrated with clear line drawings. The liberal use of tables throughout allows easy access to information.
