Veterinary Parasitology Reference Manual, Fifth Edition is a practical, thorough, bench top reference for basic diagnostic veterinary parasitology. The manual provides pertinent information on parasite life cyles, importance, location in the host, zoonotic potential, current literature, diagnosis, and treatment. It also includes step-by-step instructions for the most common diagnostic procedures used in routine veterinary practice.

Sections are organized by animal host species, including dogs; cats; cattle, sheep and goats; llamas; horses; pigs; birds; ratites (ostriches, emus, and cassowaries); and laboratory animals, as well as wildlife, reptiles, marine mammals, and humans. There is a section in which common artifacts found in fecal samples are presented, and the last section includes conversion tables and a list of abbreviations.

Features of the Fifth edition include:
* updated and enhanced references
* information on new drugs
* improved section on parasites of marine mammals
* sections on parasites of laboratory animals and humans
* over 500 photographs and figures

Features of the Fifth Edition include:

  • Updated and enhanced references
  • Information on new drugs
  • Improved parasites of marine mammals section
