This volume is the first of the series for which I am privileged to
serve in the capacity of Series Editor. The subject, veterinary medical
specialization, is the bridge between practicing clinical veterinarians
and academic scientists that generates new knowledge to further the
art of veterinary medicine. Of course, much of the scientific discovery
that benefits animal medicine is derived from the basic and applied
sciences with the original purpose of benefitting human health. This
often includes biomedical research on animals along with in vitro alternatives
to animal testing.
Currently, where business and management topics are included in the veterinary
curriculum, they tend to be incorporated under the banner of ‘Professional Studies’, a strand
of education running though most veterinary degrees, which, as its label suggests, covers
the professional behaviour aspects of veterinary medicine.
This reader-friendly guide helps veterinary nurses and technicians use calculations to determine dosage rates, anesthetic flow rates, radiography exposure rates, parenteral nutrition, and more. Self-assessment questions, examples, logos, clinical hints and tips clarify important concepts and ensure that readers master everything they need to know about calculations in their day-to-day clinical environment.
We are pleased to present the Tenth Edition of Veterinary
Medicine, 45 years since the first'Blood and Henderson' Veterinary
Medicine was published in 1960. Because the demand for this
book continues undiminished, we assume that we have a
philosophy, a format and a price that is attractive and meets the
demands of undergraduate veterinary students and graduate
veterinarians working in the field of large-animal medicine. For
this edition, Significant changes were needed to keep up to date
with the increasingly rapid expansion of knowledge about the
diseases of large animals.
A career in veterinary medicine offers opportunities in a
wide variety of professional areas, including public health,
care of companion and food animals, government service,
research, and many others. A large percentage of veterinarians
also work in private clinical practice. No matter what
area of expertise, however, the link that bonds all veterinarians
is their ability and aptitude for problem solving and the
fact that they all thoroughly enjoy doing it.
Veterinarians want to know why.
This book is written for veterinary medical students
as a primer for their clinical years and
should also be of benefit beyond graduation.
As the title suggests, our aim is to highlight
the essential relationship between tissue diseases,
their pathophysiologic consequences
and clinical expression. The book is designed
to emphasize the principles of organ system
dysfunction, providing a foundation on which
Medicine is an ever-changing science. As new research and clinical experience
broaden our knowledge, changes in treatment and drug therapy are required. The au-
thor and the publisher of this work have checked with sources believed to be reliable
in their efforts to provide information that is complete and generally in accord with
the standards accepted at the time of publication.
In addition to an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the scientific and clinical
aspects, veterinary students also need to have a grasp of the legal, ethical and social
elements of veterinary practice. Thus, communication and interpersonal skills; responsible
and professional behaviour, and an understanding of the business context of veterinary
practice are now recognized as important areas that should be incorporated into veterinary
The veterinary sector has witnessed considerable change in recent years, and this has had a
significant impact on the wider veterinary business landscape. Most noteworthy, perhaps,
has been the change at the global level in the focus of animal welfare, with a growth in
small/companion animal care and a reduction in large animal work (Lowe, 2009). This has
resulted in increased competition amongst veterinary practices and the recognition that
veterinary services need to be appropriately marketed.
Antibiotic agents have been in widespread and largely effective therapeutic use since their
discovery in the 20th century. However, the emergence of multi-drug resistant pathogens now presents
an increasing global challenge to both human and veterinary medicine. It is now widely acknowledged
that there is a need to develop novel antimicrobial agents to minimize the threat of further antimicrobial
Covering the principles of radiographic technique and interpretation for dogs, cats, and horses, Textbook of Veterinary Diagnostic Radiology, 6th Edition helps you develop proficiency in diagnostic skills. High-quality radiographic images accompany clear coverage of diagnostic radiology, ultrasound, MRI, and CT, as well as patient positioning, radiograp
The changes discussed above under the three headings of the agricultural sector, the gender
shift and veterinary education have significant implications for the veterinary business
landscape across the broader veterinary sector, impacting beyond the practice wing of the
profession. As mentioned at the outset of this chapter, to date, robust academic attention has
not been paid to the implications of changes in these areas. Such implications will now be
discussed under the relevant headings below. ...
The study of the pathogenesis of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli
(STEC) infections encompasses many different disciplines, including clinical
microbiology, diagnostics, animal ecology, and food safety, as well as the
cellular microbiology of both bacterial pathogenesis and the mechanisms of
toxin action. E. coli: Shiga Toxin Methods and Protocols aims to bring
together a number of experts from each of these varied fields in order to outline
some of the basic protocols for the diagnosis and study of STEC pathogenesis.

In the Preface to the first edition of the Handbook of Veterinary Procedures and Emergency
Treatment, published in 1969, Dr. Kirk and Dr. Bistner described the format of that book
as being divided into six sections, “each emphasizing a facet of early examination, clinical
methods, or emergency care.”
Today, 37 years later, those original objectives remain unchanged. What has changed,
however, are the numerous advances in clinical diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities in
companion animal medicine.
