About this book

Fenner's Veterinary Virology, Fifth Edition, is a comprehensive reference of global importance that features coverage on viral agents, viral diseases of animals, and newly emerging viral zoonotic diseases. It is an excellent first port of call for researchers and students alike, presenting the fundamental principles of virology, virus structure, genome replication, and viral diseases, while also focusing on the topics' clinical aspects.

Organized on a taxonomic basis, readers can quickly understand how the virus (or the viral diseases) fits into the bigger picture of the virus genus and family. The basic information about each virus, such as disease, transmission, control, and treatment are useful for veterinary students and clinicians for their practices in disease management and prevention.

Media reviews

Reviews of 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
