About this book

The textbook Parasitology in Veterinary Medicine is based on Lehrbuch der Parasitologie fur die Tiermedizin (3rd ed.), published in 2013 by Enke, Germany. Wageningen Academic Publishers presents a revised edition in English, suited both for basic and advanced studies and as reference book for the veterinary practice.

Although focused on the European situation, Parasitology in Veterinary Medicine also deals with important parasitic diseases occurring in other regions.The main part is organized by parasite groups (protozoa, helminths, arthropoda, etc.). It provides information on the parasites' biology, epidemiology, immunology, pathogenesis, clinical signs, diagnosis, therapy and control. Summaries allow for a quick overview.Another part is arranged according to animal species (cattle, sheep and goats, pigs, horses, dogs and cats, rabbits, poultry, bees). It contains tables listing the parasites of the organ systems and showing antiparasitic drugs. Furthermore, practical instructions on the control of parasitic diseases are given.Further chapters deal with general parasitology, zoonoses, parasites in food, diagnostic procedures, and essentials of therapy and control of parasitoses.

A detailed glossary with etymological notes is intended for a better understanding of parasitological terms. Parasitology in Veterinary Medicine contains numerous tables and is illustrated with 421 figures, including many instructive drawings of parasite life cycles.
