This is an introductory guide to the prevalence and treatment of zoonoses; infections transmitted to humans from vertebrate animals. Zoonoses are diseases and infections that are transmitted between vertebrate animals and humans. Infections can be inconvenient or life-threatening and may be transmitted by companion animals, agricultural animals, or by foods. Since contact with animals is commonplace all health care professionals should have an understanding of the importance, diagnosis and treatment of zoonotic infections. In recent years, since the publication of the first edition of "Zoonoses", there has been a much greater awareness of the dangers that food borne diseases such as E.Coli, BSE, etc. can pose to human health as a result of poor agricultural, hygiene or regulatory practices. In addition, the transmission of animal borne respiratory viruses such as avian (bird) flu and SARS are now recognized as significant hazards to human health with the potential to cause global pandemics. Zoonotic infections have also been recognized as biological warfare agents (e.g. anthrax) and have the potential to be used, or have been used in reality, in terrorist attacks. Since 2002, there has been a considerably increased awareness of zoonoses amongst health care professionals, governments and the public. There is also considerably more scientific understanding of these infections and their treatment. The new edition of this book is therefore very timely. In many respects the first edition of "Zoonoses" could be considered ahead of its time although it is now somewhat dated. This new edition contains completely revised and updated text highlighting the most significant recent threats to human health such as avian flu.

From the Back Cover:

Zoonoses have growing worldwide significance posing a constant challenge to healthcare and society. Since publication of the first edition, there has been an increased awareness of zoonoses amongst healthcare professionals, governments and the public, and this timely book responds to the growing necessity for information. Due to several changes in disease patterns around the world in the last few years, and an increased scientific understanding of these infections, the author is able to offer fascinating up-to-date information on both prevalence and treatment of various diseases, not only within the context of domestic disease, but also in the wider world. Chapters have been expanded or diminished accordingly, and sections on bio-terrorism, E. coli, BSE, avian flu, swine flu and SARS are included. Zoonoses, 2nd edition includes a thorough introduction to the subject followed by sections on: Zoonoses of companion animals Zoonoses of agricultural animals Food-borne zoonoses Variant CJD, BSE and other prion diseases Pandora’s box Emerging zoonoses Implications for healthcare Zoonoses is aimed at trained and trainee healthcare professionals, as well as public health practitioners and those working in primary healthcare. It will be an invaluable resource for any undergraduate pharmacy student, practising pharmacist or other healthcare professional.

Review:

"'This book provides useful material for any non-specialist healthcare professional, particularly the practicing pharmacist... I would anticipate that the book is of particular interest to those who are involved with any veterinary aspects of pharmacy. Also a number of the diseases covered are of relevance to travel medicine.' Larry Goodyer, Pharmaceutical Journal 2002; 269: 655. (Larry Goodyer The Pharmaceutical Journal)

'This is a useful, comprehensive reference that both experienced healthcare professionals and those in training can benefit from having on the shelf. With the addition of biological warfare and with changes in worldwide disease patterns, the second edition is a must have replacement for the previous edition.'
Patrick Scoble, PharmD, Doody's Notes, January 2010 (Patrick Scoble Doody's Notes)

'The book is clear and concise and quite cleverly laid out... From a student point of view, this book is an excellent revision tool as it deals with zoonoses in a clear, easy to understand manner... I feel that this book is very well constructed and informative. It's a student friendly resource that I feel would benefit any student studying a healthcare discipline degree. Fantastic!' Chris Barnes, Tomorrow's Pharmacist 2003: 24. (Chris Barnes Tomorrow's Pharmacist)

'Written in an accessible, practical style, this concise guide to zoonotic infections, their symptoms and treatment, looks at both domestic and farm animals. Pharmacists will find the case studies at the end of each chapter of practical help.' Neva Sinclair, Pharmacy Today 2002; Aug: 28." (Neva Sinclair Pharmacy Today)
