About this book

This third edition of Veterinary Parasitology is a major update which builds on the spirit of earlier editions. New authors with a wealth of experience of teaching and researching the subject have thoroughly revised and restructured the book to reflect modern teaching practice and the most up-to-date coverage of advances in this area.

*Arranged by host species and organ systems within the host, with extensive cross-referencing to enable ease of access to information on particular parasites.

*The core focus is on parasites of livestock and companion animals, but new sections also cover parasites of poultry and gamebirds, laboratory animals, exotic pets and 'farmed' species.

*Expanded sections on protozoa and ectoparasites, as well as coverage of a larger selection of parasites of veterinary significance around the world.

*The majority of parasitic diseases are now covered in detail using a standardised format for each parasite to allow easy referencing and identification and for comparison between species within a genus.
