Poultry Coccidiosis Diagnostic and Testing Procedures 3rd Edition PDF
The preceding editions of this handbook were designed to aid the research scientist, the diagnostician, and the veterinary practitioner to better understand the procedures used to diagnose and evaluate coccidiosis in chickens, to review the epidemiology and control of these protozoan parasites, and to outline standard procedures for testing anticoccidial drugs under laboratory conditions and in the field. These objectives have not changed in the current edition, and we have included a new chapter on anticoccidial drugs and vaccines used in the prevention and control of these parasites in chickens.
The topics developed emphasize the differential diagnosis of the major species of poultry coccidia, lesion scoring, the preparation of oocysts for laboratory tests, basic procedures for testing anticoccidial drugs, a review of the epidemiology of coccidiosis in chickens, and standard procedures for preventing this disease complex through good management practices and the use of anticoccidial drugs and vaccines.
A comprehensive review of the current edition was undertaken by Dr. Thomas K. Jeffers, and we wish to thank him very much for his contribution. His excellent comments and suggestions were of tremendous value to our final review of this edition. The advice and encouragement from Dr. Patricia C. Allen, Agricultural Research Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, during the preparation of this edition is also greatly appreciated.
