Veterinary Parasitology is widely considered to be the definitive veterinary parasitology reference for practitioners and students alike. The 4th Edition has been developed and enhanced into a two-part reference to reflect recent advances in the field, modern teaching practice, and updated parasite taxonomic classification systems. * Greatly expands and revises the systematic sections on helminthology, protozoology and entomology, and descriptions of animal parasites * Tailored for those directly involved in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitic diseases of domestic animals * Compatible with the diversity of current parasitology teaching modules both for teaching parasite systematics and diseases on a host-organ basis * Offers the most detailed parasite descriptions available today for teachers, research groups, veterinarians in practice and in government service, and others involved in aspects of parasitic disease
