Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease by P.J. QuinnVeterinary Microbiology is one of the core subjects for veterinary students. This is a core textbook covering every aspect of veterinary microbiology for students in both paraclinical and clinical years. The clinical applications to farm and companion animals, which are of relevance to the veterinarians are emphasised. In each case there is a concise description of the groups of micro-organisms, the diseases they produce, immunological aspects and a summary of infectious diseases based on their main clinical signs. Unlike other microbiology books this one gives equal weighting to bacteriology, mycology and virology. The use of tables throughout means that information is easily accessible.

Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease. ISBN Knowing what and how much to teach the modern veterinary student about pathogenic bacteriology and virology is a challenging topic. It has many similarities to Hirsh and Zee's Veterinary Microbiology 2nd edition , to which it is a more up-to-date superior. It seems extraordinary, however, that the same publisher Blackwell Scientific should publish 2 very similar books. This book is an introductory text in veterinary microbiology and microbial disease for veterinary undergraduates, written by faculty members at University College, Dublin. It is divided into 6 sections, an introduction to bacteriology, a large section of systematic pathogenic bacteriology, mycology, an introduction to virology, a large section on systematic pathogenic virology, and a final section on microbial agents and disease production which has some slightly quirky choice chapters.
Tables, boxes and flow diagrams provide information in an easily assimilated format. This edition contains new chapters on molecular diagnostics and on infectious conditions of the skin, cardiovascular system, urinary tract and musculoskeletal system. Many new colour diagrams are incorporated into this edition and each chapter has been updated. Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease remains indispensable for all those studying and teaching this essential component of the veterinary curriculum.
