Abstract

This book, containing 9 chapters, allows for a quick and accurate reference on the diagnosis of internal and external parasites in animals, including expanded coverage of parasites of reptiles, birds, and other exotic species. The latest edition contains fully revised material throughout, including new and expanded information on immunodiagnostic and molecular diagnostic tests, additional parasite-specific material on the benefits and limitations of different test modalities. New sections include up-to-date information on anthelmintics, antiprotozoals, and other antiparasitic drugs, and challenging case studies that provide insights on situations where identification of parasites is especially difficult. This manual presents clear and concise information on the distribution, life cycle, and significance of each parasite covered.
