Handbook of Veterinary Pharmacology PDF
This book is not intended to provide a lengthy discussion of veterinary drugs; instead, it is designed as a handbook that contains concise descriptions of pharmacological concepts and information for the commonly used veterinary drugs available in the United States. Every effort has been made to keep the information on basic and clinical veterinary pharmacology up-to-date and concise.
Whenever possible, each class of drugs is explored under the heading of “general considerations” or “introduction” to convey the basic concept and information, which is followed by a description of the pharmacology of each drug with the headings of (1) chemistry/preparations, (2) pharmacological effects/mechanism of action, (3) therapeutic uses, (4) administration, (5) pharmacokinetics, and (6) adverse effects/contraindications.
The ultimate goal of this book is to provide to both the veterinary students and practitioners the information on pharmacology that is applicable and easily retrievable. A list of suggested reading at the end of each chapter is provided for further reading of the subject. In addition, 10–20 study questions and explanations are presented at the end of each chapter.
There are two appendices at the end of the book; one on the withdrawal times for drugs used in production animals and the other on the drug dosages in various domestic species. The drug dosages in both generic name and selected trade names are listed according to chapter, drug class, route of administration, and species. I hope these two appendices will be useful to veterinary practitioners, particularly when a quick decision is needed on drug therapy.
