Updated descriptive atlas on the diagnosis of the main ectoparasitoses (insects and mites) in cats and dogs. It covers the most relevant aspects of each parasite, using visual resources to help identify them, and their involvement in human and animal health. The book is complemented with QR links to videos showing sample collection and processing and microscopic visualisation.
The distinctive feature of this book is its clear diagnostic approach.
The authors’ broad teaching and research experience gives this book an eminently practical style.
It includes many images to make it easier to recognise these pathogens and to guide clinical activities.
