Clinical veterinary microbiology 2nd edition

A lot of water has passed under the bridge since the popular first edition of this book. Needless to say the writing of textbooks is not a full-time occupation for any of the authors but rather a complementary activity to teaching, research and diagnostic service. This project was driven by a love of books.

On more than one occasion the writing faltered due to other more pressing commitments and the vicissitudes of life in general. We have tried to retain the essential structure and character of the first edition while updating and adding new material as necessary.

In particular, the virology section has been greatly expanded with the addition of a chapter for each of the families containing viruses of veterinary importance. For taxonomy we have relied heavily on resources such as the List of Prokaryotic Names with Standing in Nomenclature, the virus list of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses and Index Fungorum.

For information on the diagnosis of many of the more important infectious diseases of farm animals we have frequently consulted the Manual of Diagnostic Tests and Vaccines for Terrestrial Animals on the website ( of the OIE (Office International des Epizooties – World Organisation for Animal Health). We hope we have succeeded in producing a book that is useful, informative and appealing.

This beautifully illustrated, comprehensive reference provides concise information on the materials and methods of bacteriology, mycology, and virology. The book covers the collection, isolation, and culture of diagnostic specimens, with detailed notes on the biochemical, serological and other tests currently used to identify and distinguish between microbial pathogens. The new edition sets out to provide the most up-to-date account of all the clinically and economically important pathogens, including Bovine Spongiform Encephalomyeltis, Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, E-coli, and Salmonella. The clear, accessible format, together with the complete revision of the content, makes this a valuable resource.
