Canine and Feline Infectious Diseases, The goal of this first edition of Canine and Feline Infectious Diseases was to provide a text for veterinary students and clinicians with a strong clinical emphasis.

Canine and Feline Infectious Diseases

Canine And Feline Infectious Diseases

Authorship has been limited to veterinarians who have had direct and considerable clinical experience with diagnosis and treatment of the diseases described. The chapters have been presented in a consistent and logical format with extensive use of tables, photographs, and line drawings, so that veterinarians and students can quickly find answers to questions they have that relate to infectious dis-eases in dogs and cats.

This book contains two parts and eight sections. The first part, Basic Principles in the Diagnosis and Management of Small Animal Infection, contains three sections: Laboratory Diagnosis of Infectious Diseases, Antiinfective Therapy, and Basic Principles of Infection Control. The second part, Major Infectious Diseases and their Etiologic Agents, systematically discusses specific infectious diseases of dogs and cats in a way that is practical and relevant to the veterinary clinician.

The first section, Laboratory Diagnosis of Canine and Feline Infectious Diseases, is co-authored by a small animal clinician and a clinical microbiologist. It aims to help practicing veterinarians select the best type of test for detection of an infectious disease, collect the most appropriate specimens for testing, optimally transport specimens to the laboratory, and most importantly, to interpret test results properly. The second section, Antiinfective Therapy, is co-authored by a clinician and a veterinary pharmacologist.

The goal of this section is to help veterinarians use first principles to select the most appropriate drug for treatment of a suspected or confirmed infectious disease, understand the mechanisms of action and adverse effects of various antimicrobial drugs used in practice, and utilize treatment regimes that minimize development of antimicrobial resistance. The third section, Basic Principles for Infection Control, is co-authored by veterinary clinicians who have extensive practical experience with infectious disease control in veterinary hospitals. Practical protocols for the management of canine and feline patients suspected to have infectious diseases are provided, including handling, disinfection, isolation, and vaccination protocols.
