About this book

The first part of this volume presents the fundamental principles of virology related to animal infection and disease whilst part two addresses the clinical features, pathogenesis, diagnosis, epidemiology and prevention of individual diseases.

This new edition has been fully revised and updated.

Praise for the Second Edition:

"The information is clearly presented, current, and easy to read... The book contains information not available in other texts of this type and would be a valuable addition to any personal or institutional library."
- Australian Veterinary Journal

"This book is very well-written and reflects the enthusiasm of the distinguished authors for the subject matter. The text is directed primarily at veterinary students and is entirely appropriate for this readership. This reviewer has regularly recommended the previous edition to veterinary undergraduates at the Ontario Veterinary College, and will continue to recommend the Second Edition."
- Canadian Veterinary Journal

"Veterinary Virology is a well-worked text, coming as close as any available to the task of reconciling the enormous advances in basic virology with the needs of those interested in the associated animal diseases."
- W. Plowright, The Veterinary Record
