Editorial Reviews

“This is an affordable, useful addition to the veterinary acid-base literature and could be used by students or practitioners of veterinary medicine or veterinary technology…The book is written by veterinary technicians for veterinary technicians. It is of high quality and moderate complexity…The editors are to be commended for including a chapter on the strong ion approach to acid-base in veterinary patients. This feature is still lacking in many books, despite the wide scientific acceptance of the strong ion approach. It is often omitted for its mathematical complexity and potential lack of utility, but the author of that chapter does a good job of explaining the easy utility of strong ion difference clinically even if the total strong ion approach remains out of reach practically.” (Doody Enterprises 17/03/2017)

Mineral Nutrition of Livestock, 4th Edition

Durata citire: < 1 minute

by Neville F. Suttle
September 2010

The fourth edition of this important book covers the advances in livestock mineral nutrition, updated with more illustrations and additional material on the relationship between livestock and man. Recent developments are discussed, such as increasing the ‘mineral value’ of feeds by the use of additives and enhancing mineral availability through the use of organic sources of trace elements. The concept of the ‘mineral footprint’ of livestock production is introduced and methods of mineral feeding that lower environmental pollution are presented. Opportunities and problems in manipulating the mineral content of livestock to improve the mineral status of consumers are also addressed. The book is an essential resource for researchers and students in animal nutrition, agriculture and veterinary medicine, and a useful reference for those concerned with human nutrition and environmental protection.

Pet Bird Diseases and Care

Durata citire: 2 minute

by Indranil Samanta, Samiran Bandyopadhyay
March 2017

This book provides fundamental information on pet birds, menaces, and advances made in the diagnosis and treatment of menaces. It is the only book covering all species of pet birds, menaces and their individual management. The handful of related books available worldwide are largely outdated and focus on a single species or breed of pet bird.

The book encompasses the history of bird keeping, common breeds of birds, their nutritional requirements, list of zoonotic diseases transmitted by birds and guideline for their prevention. It covers infectious, non-infectious clinical and metabolic diseases, and toxicity in detail with a special focus on the history of diseases, etiology, affected hosts, pathogenesis, clinical signs, diagnosis and treatment. Separate chapters detail relevant diagnostic techniques, management and care practices, including updated information.

The book offers an invaluable guide for students and teachers in the field of (avian) veterinary medicine, scientists/research scholars working in related fields, and avian medicine practitioners, as well as all those progressive bird owners who want to know the basics of their care and management.

Emerging and Re-emerging Infectious Diseases of Livestock

Durata citire: < 1 minute

by Jagadeesh Bayry
February 2017

This book provides comprehensive knowledge on diseases in livestock that are caused by viruses, parasites and bacteria. Emerging and re-emerging pathogens are presented in detail for various animal groups and in-depth insights into pathogenesis and epidemiology will be provided for each of them. In addition, state-of-the-art treatment possibilities, control measures as well as vaccination strategies are discussed. The recent years have witnessed a sharp increase in the number of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases of livestock and many of these, including Influenza, Corona and Hanta are of public health importance. The reasons for this development are manifold:changes in the climate, life cycle of vectors and increased global travel. Also, due to extensive deforestation, livestock are increasingly coming in direct contact with wild animals that are reservoirs of many emerging pathogens. Recent progress in diagnosis and management of emerging infectious diseases are also topic of this book.

Systems Biology in Animal Production and Health

Durata citire: 2 minute

by Haja N. Kadarmideen
October 2016

This two-volume work provides an overview on various state of the art experimental and statistical methods, modeling approaches and software tools that are available to generate, integrate and analyze multi-omics datasets in order to detect biomarkers, genetic markers and potential causal genes for improved animal production and health. The book will contain online resources where additional data and programs can be accessed. Some chapters also come with computer programming codes and example datasets to provide readers hands-on (computer) exercises.

This first volume presents the basic principles and concepts of systems biology with theoretical foundations including genetic, co-expression and metabolic networks. It will introduce to multi omics components of systems biology from genomics, through transcriptomics, proteomics to metabolomics. In addition it will highlight statistical methods and (bioinformatic) tools available to model and analyse these data sets along with phenotypes in animal production and health. This book is suitable for both students and teachers in animal sciences and veterinary medicine as well as to researchers in this discipline.

Comparative Medicine: Disorders Linking Humans with Their Animals

Durata citire: < 1 minute

by Erika Jensen-Jarolim
February 2017

This book highlights the most significant diseases for humans and their dogs, cats and horses. The examples discussed, which include allergies, osteoporosis, cancer and many more, illustrate that humans and their companion animals may in fact develop similar diseases.

The reader – whether expert or interested lay – can thus directly compare between human and animal patients. The animal patient thereby represents a natural disease model, which besides the experimental models, is urgently needed to improve the therapeutic options for both humans and animals.

Provides an overview on the pathophysiology of common diseases in human and selected model animals
Introduces new concepts in comparative medicine
Critically discusses the need of animal experimental models for understanding the molecular mechanisms of human diseases
