Veterinary Clinical Parasitology, Eighth Edition, prepared under the auspices of the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP), emphasizes the morphologic identification of both internal and external parasites of domestic animals. Focusing on the tests and information most relevant to daily practice, the book describes accurate, cost-effective techniques for diagnosing parasitic infections in animals. Including clear, easy-to-find information on the distribution, life cycle, and importance of each parasite, Veterinary Clinical Parasitology offers more than 450 images to aid with diagnosis.

The Eighth Edition includes a new chapter on immunologic and molecular diagnosis, increased coverage of ticks and new sections on identification of microfilariae and larvae in diagnostic samples. The new edition also features expanded information on quantitative egg counts, detection of anthelmintic resistance and identification of ruminant strongylid larvae. Additional improvements include many new images throughout the book, revised taxonomic information, a new layout featuring tabs by section to improve user-friendliness, and a companion website offering the images from the book in PowerPoint at Veterinary Clinical Parasitology is a highly practical benchside reference invaluable to clinicians, technicians, and students.

Reviews for Veterinary Clinical Parasitology

This book is one which the reviewer can see as being very useful both in the veterinary technology classroom as well as on the bench of a working laboratory. (Veterinary Information Network, 9 January 2013) Overall, an excellent reference book with outstanding images and aids to parasite identification. I have utterly enjoyed the opportunity to review this book and will value its addition to our lab bookshelf . (Veterinary Record, 15 June 2013) This update would be an excellent resource for anyone involved in veterinary parasitology, practitioners as well as students. It provides practical, useful, and up-to-date information. (Doody s, 17 August 2012)
