About this book

History of the Surveillance and Control of Transmissible Animal Diseases outlines the history of the surveillance and control of the major animal transmissible diseases (sheep pox, foot and mouth disease, anthrax, glanders, contagious bovine pleuropneumonia, rinderpest, rabies, tuberculosis, and ecto- and endoparasitic diseases), as well as wildlife diseases. A chapter is devoted to each of these subjects. It deals successively with symptomatology (clinical description, incubation, laboratory diagnosis), lesions, aetiology, pathogenesis, epidemiology (contagiosity, means of contagion, susceptible species, virulent matter), sanitary control (general hygiene, isolation, slaughter, destruction of virulent matter), medical control, treatment and health regulation. Advances in knowledge and theories concerning each of the above points are studied from Antiquity through to the 19th Century, with detailed bibliographic references. History of the Surveillance and Control of Transmissible Animal Diseases also contains a chronology of the main works and authors cited, as well as notes on the diseases studied.
