Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease
by P. J. Quinn

Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease covers every aspect of veterinary microbiology for students in both paraclinical and clinical years. The clinical applications for farm and companion animals are emphasized according to their relevance to veterinarians.

In each case the text features:

  • A concise description of the groups of microorganisms
  • An account of the diseases they produce
  • An exploration of immunological aspects
  • A summary of infectious diseases based on their main clinical signs

Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Diseases gives equal weighting to bacteriology, mycology and virology, an area which is often neglected. The text is illustrated with clear line drawings. The liberal use of tables throughout allows easy access to information.
