By Elliott R. Jacobson, Michael M. Garner, Year 2020, FileType: PDF
This two-volume set, Diseases and Pathology of Reptiles: Color Atlas and Text, takes the understanding of reptilian diagnostics to a new level. Never has a book covered biology, diagnostics, infectious and noninfectious diseases in such a comprehensive, in depth approach. Whether studying for advanced certification, needing information for research or investigating clinical cases, this publication is a must have.
Infectious Diseases and Pathology of Reptiles 2nd Edition provides definitive information on every aspect of the anatomy, pathophysiology, and differential diagnosis of infectious diseases affecting reptiles. It features stunning high-quality color photos of normal anatomy and histology, as well as gross, light, and electron microscopic images of infectious diseases of reptiles.
Editor Elliott Jacobson draws on his own photography collection, and his wealth of experience spanning over 40 years in the research of infectious diseases and veterinary care of reptiles. Already a comprehensive reference, a new volume covering noninfectious diseases of reptiles has now been added to create a two-volume set, Diseases and Pathology of Reptiles.
Beginning with a thorough review of the biology, anatomy, and histology of reptiles, Volume 1 covers all major systems and provides the most complete single source for color images of reptile histology, hematology, and cytology. Volume 1 addresses the mechanism of reptile immunology and the response to pathogens, and explains how immunological response is key to differential diagnosis. It provides an overview of electron microscopy, complete with electron micrographs of reptile pathogens, and introduces the necessity of molecular methods for diagnosis. Finally, this volume devotes several chapters to the viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic diseases known to reptiles, and methods for isolating these pathogens.

With up-to-the-minute data, an array of sharp and high-quality images, and a panel of expert contributors, this new edition of Infectious Diseases and Pathology of Reptiles is the definitive resource for veterinary pathologists, zoo or wildlife veterinarians, and the increasing number of private practice veterinarians seeing reptiles kept as exotic pets. It is also ideal reading for veterinary students specializing in exotics, candidates for ACZM accreditation, and private breeders and hobbyists.
As we struggle to conserve reptile populations in the 21st century, we must have a deep understanding of their infectious diseases. This text, written by many of the world’s top herpetological pathologists and clinicians, definitively covers the subject. It is essential reading for veterinary pathologists, zoological and conservation medicine clinicians, herpetologists, and their students.
