<p>Long established as a bestselling parasitology book for veterinary practitioners and veterinary students, the previous edition lead by Urquhart was praised as '...probably the best available veterinary parasitology text for the practitioner' (Clinical Insight).</p> <p>This third edition of <em>Veterinary Parasitology</em> is a major update which builds on the spirit of earlier editions. New authors with a wealth of experience of teaching and researching the subject have thoroughly revised and restructured the book to reflect modern teaching practice and the most up-to-date coverage of advances in this area.</p> <p>*Arranged by host species and organ systems within the host, with extensive cross-referencing to enable ease of access to information on particular parasites.</p> <p>*The core focus is on parasites of livestock and companion animals, but new sections also cover parasites of poultry and gamebirds, laboratory animals, exotic pets and 'farmed' species.</p> <p>*Expanded sections on protozoa and ectoparasites, as well as coverage of a larger selection of parasites of veterinary significance around the world.</p> <p>*The majority of parasitic diseases are now covered in detail using a standardised format for each parasite to allow easy referencing and identification and for comparison between species within a genus.</p> <p>Suitable for veterinary students, as well as researchers of veterinary parasitology, veterinarians in practice and in government service and others who are involved in aspects of parasitic disease.</p> <p>About the authors:</p> <p>Professor Mike Taylor is head of Veterinary Surveillance at the Central Science Laboratory York, UK.

Patient Assessment, Intervention and Documentation for the Veterinary Technician addresses the methodology used to apply substantive information to real world problems in the education of veterinary technicians. Nursing students in human medicine have long benefited from instruction in the Nursing Process, which is a method for using critical thinking skills to apply theoretical knowledge to actual cases. This text develops a similar methodology for veterinary technicians, called the "Technician Practice Model". This guide identifies and describes the various steps in the Technician Practice Model and provides both instruction and examples on documenting the results of that process. Particular emphasis is given to developing SOAP notes and Medication Administration/Order Records (MAOR).
With detailed coverage of surgical procedures, Veterinary Surgery: Small Animal is an authoritative, two-volume reference on the art and science of small animal surgery. Expert contributors discuss surgical principles and procedures for topics ranging from surgical biology and perioperative care, to neurosurgery orthopedic surgery, and soft tissue surgery, always supported by evidence-based research and complete surgical instructions. More procedures are covered with greater detail than in comparable books, and a greater emphasis on pathophysiology shows how it relates to diagnosis, treatment, and overall case management. Experienced Coeditors Karen Tobias and Spencer Johnston provide the definitive reference for veterinary surgery, invaluable preparation for the ACVS and ECVS board examinations.
