Practical guide infectious diseases in dogs

This practical guide provides updated information about the infectious diseases that most commonly affect dogs, diagnostic approaches, treatments, vaccinations programmes and recommendations, etc., all described from a highly practical point of view.

Obtaining the best graphical material presented some difficulties; sufficiently high resolution versions of all the images one would like to include in a text are not always easy to come by. Fortunately, friends and colleagues have provided us with appropriately referenced images that accurately complement the text.

When I was first asked to author this book I was delighted to accept the challenge of writing a text on infectious diseases in dogs from a clinical perspective. The first objective was to create an index consisting of the most relevant diseases, based on frequency and clinical significance, as well as an appendix on prophylaxis. This required finding motivated collaborators with expertise in the relevant fields. Infectious Disease Management in Animal Shelters 2nd Edition

I put the proposal to Laia Solano (PhD in veterinary and clinical pathology) and internal medicine residents Rebeca Movilla and Jorge Castro. Between the four of us we were able to create a coherent index that prioritised what we consider to be the most important infectious diseases of dogs caused by viruses, bacteria, protozoa, and fungi. With this done, the next step was obvious: start writing. In this collaboration we sought to establish a synergy between the knowledge and clinical experience of the authors and their research experience in infectious diseases. At all times we have attempted to thoroughly review the diseases in question, always in the context of the relevant published scientific data. Ensuring that the text included the most up-to-date information required rewriting and modification of some of the chapters, particularly the appendix on vaccinations, which was almost completely rewritten for the final version.
