Veterinary Parasitology Reference Manual, Fifth Edition provides easy access to pertinent information on parasite life cycles, importance, location in host, zoonotic potential, current literature, diagnosis, and treatment. Chapters are organized by animal host species, including laboratory animals, humans, llamas, ratites, dogs, cats, ruminants, horses, pigs, and birds, as well as reptiles, wildlife, and marine animals, often missing from veterinary parasitology textbooks, but of practical interest to veterinarians.

The manual includes step-by-step instructions for the most common diagnostic procedures used in routine veterinary practice.

Features of the Fifth Edition include:

  • Updated and enhanced references
  • Information on new drugs
  • Improved parasites of marine mammals section
  • Sections on laboratory animal parasites and human parasites
  • Over 500 photographs and figures

Foreyt underscores the strong relationship between parasites and the overall health of animals and stresses that indiscriminate use of drugs is a poor substitute for good management and nutrition in controlling parasites. The text also offers insights into the evolving relationships between hosts and parasites.

Wildlife and zoo workers, veterinary practitioners, students, and technicians will find this to be a readable and accurate resource of information about parasites in a variety of animalswild, domestic, common and exotic.
