A unique resource for all those interested in the impact of wormson livestock, the anthelmintics used to get rid of them and theemerging problem of anthelmintic resistance.  This bookprovides an over-arching view of past, present and suggested futurestrategies for control of gastrointestinal nematode parasites insheep and cattle.

The book begins with descriptions of the biology ofgastrointestinal nematodes, the harm they cause to the host andtheir economic impact.  The main body of the book deals withthe control of worms, focusing on the use of anthelmintic drenches.The relationship between drenching practices and the development ofdrug resistance is discussed, as well as resistance management.

Review:

"This very readable book is a refreshing change from most books onparasitology. The authors provide a wonderful review of currentresearch efforts and present it in a way to provide readers withuseable information. They also delve into more futuristic ideas onparasite control by vaccination as well as genetic resistance andnutritional interactions." (Doody's, 23 September 2011)

"This is definitely a book for anyone who wants to know a lot ofdetail about gastrointestinal parasites of sheep and cattle, butnot for those after a quick and definitive guide to solving commonproblems encountered in veterinary practice." (The AustralianVeterinary Journal, January/February 2011)
