About this book

This successful book, now in its third edition, continues to provide a comprehensive introduction to the role of epidemiology in veterinary medicine.

Since the publication of the second edition there has been considerable expansion in the application of veterinary epidemiology: more quantitative methods are available, challenges such as the epidemic of foot-and-mouth disease in Europe in 2001 have required epidemiological investigation, and epidemiological analyses have taken on further importance with the emergence of evidence-based veterinary medicine.
