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.

Contents

The development of veterinary medicine; the scope of epidemiology; some general epidemiological concepts and principles; describing disease occurrence; determinants of disease; the transmission and maintenance of infection; the ecology of disease; patterns of disease; the nature of data; sources of data; data management; presenting numerical data; surveys; demonstrating association; observational studies; clinical trials; diagnostic testing; comparative epidemiology; modelling; the economics of disease; health schemes; the control and eradication of disease.
