Veterinary Microbiology, Third Edition is a comprehensive reference on the
bacterial, fungal, and viral pathogenic agents that cause animal disease.
Now in full color with improved images throughout, the new edition has
been thoroughly updated to reflect information from current research and
diagnostic and clinical publications. Key changes include a review of
microbial cell structure and function and increased emphasis on the key
points of pathogenesis and host responses to infection. Organized into
four sections, the Third Edition begins with an updated and expanded
introductory section on infectious disease pathogenesis, diagnosis and
clinical management. The second section covers bacterial and fungal
pathogens, and the third section describes viral diseases and viruses. The
final section presents a systematic approach of describing infection and
disease of animals. Equally useful for beginning veterinary students and
seasoned practitioners, Veterinary Microbiology offers a thorough
introduction and reference text for veterinary infectious disease.
