The application of evidence-based veterinary medicine (EBVM) can assist in improving and optimising the diagnosis, prognosis, control, treatment and ultimately the welfare of animals. It can also provide the user with a methodology for appropriate, patient orientated life-long, self-directed, learning. To practise evidence-based veterinary medicine we require a range of skills that we may not have.
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.
Th is book is about medical beliefs and practices for animals in early
modern England. Although there are numerous texts on the subject of
human health, this is the fi rst to focus exclusively on animals during
this period. Th e main reason for this is probably linked to the dichotomy
of medical historians that Roy Porter referred to over fi ft een years
ago. Today, the majority tend to focus on the experience of health and
illness for humans over the centuries.
When a new veterinary medicinal product is
launched into widespread use, adverse drug reactions
may become apparent. These may be seen in
the treated animal patients, in exposed users or as
adverse effects on the environment. Additionally,
they may manifest as excess residues of the drug
in food of animal origin. As a consequence, legislation
and regulatory approaches have developed
across the globe to address these issues and to
ensure that the continued safety of these products
can be monitored and, where necessary,
that regulatory actions can be pursued to assuage
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.
This handy reference provides users with an understanding of complementary and alternative treatment options for more than 130 common disease states. A practical manual, it describes a variety of possible approaches to small animal disorders. Concentrating on nutrition, herbs, traditional Chinese medicines, and physical therapies, the authors present both tradition- and evidence-based therapies for disorders not always responsive to conventional therapies.
For 250 years, veterinary medicine and its scientific underpinning, veterinary
science, have struggled to gain the confidence and respect of clients, fellow
health scientists and practitioners, and the general public. And it has been
accomplished by means of the scientific method and strict objectivity. To
embrace unproven or even discredited “complementary and alternative” techniques
surely is regressive both for patients and for veterinarians.
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.
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
Veterinary medicine is advancing at a very rapid pace, particularly given the breadth
of the discipline. This book examines new developments covering a wide range of
issues from health and welfare in livestock, pets, and wild animals to public health
supervision and biomedical research.
As well as containing reviews offering fresh insight into specific issues, this book
includes a selection of scientific articles which help to chart the advance of this science.
The book is divided into several sections.
The production of free radicals (ROS) is an unavoidable consequence of life in an
aerobic environment. Free radicals produced from the metabolic activities of oxygen
attack biological membranes and lipoproteins via oxidation in a process called
lipid perioxidation. This attack damages cells and lipids often in a chain reaction
with carbon-based molecules such as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) in a reaction
with molecular oxygen. This creates oxidative stress and damage to tissues.
Free radicals also damage chromosomal DNA.
.ANIMALS, DISEASE AND HUMAN SOCIETY
In recent years, the issue of animal disease has seldom been out of the headlines. The emergence of BSE and the threat of food-borne infections such as E.coli and salmonella have focused public attention on the impact of animal disease on human society. However, the problem of animal disease is far from new. Animals, Disease and Human Society explores the history and nature of our dependency on other animals and the implications of this for human and animal health.

There have been many changes in veterinary medicine since the fi rst edition
of Anaesthesia for Veterinary Nurses was published in 2003. There is an
increasing number of specialist referral hospitals, and the speciality of emergency
and critical care has blossomed in the United Kingdom. However, still
central to much that is achieved in veterinary practice is the ability to sedate
and anaesthetise patients safely. The protocols and methods involved in veterinary
anaesthesia are often complex and vary considerably from patient to
In my work as a veterinarian, I combine Western diagnostic and treatment
methods with Eastern healing principles. When potential clients hear
about my work, the first question they usually ask is: “Why should I bother
to learn about a different approach to my pet’s health than the one I’m
already familiar with—the one my parents grew up with?” I have heard
many variations on this “why” question during early meetings with pet
owners about the health of their dog, cat, bird, or other beloved animal....
This book presents a comprehensive view of veterinary vaccines and
diagnostics~past, present, and future. The authors were all participants
in the First International Veterinary Vaccines and Diagnostics
Conference (IVVDC) held during the summer of 1997 at the Monona
Terrace Convention Center, Madison, Wisconsin, USA,
Each session had co-chairs who selected four to six speakers. The
book follows the general organization of the conference.
