About this Textbook

This textbook focuses on the most important parasites affecting dogs, cats, ruminants, horses, pigs, rabbits, rodents, birds, fishes, reptiles and bees. For each parasite, the book offers a concise summary including its distribution, epidemiology, lifecycle, morphology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, prophylaxis and therapeutic measures. Numerous informative tables and more than 500 color micrographs and schemes present the most important aspects of the parasites, their induced diseases and the latest information on suitable prevention and control measures. 100 questions at the end of the book offer readers the chance to test their comprehension. The book is well suited as both a textbook and a reference guide for veterinarians, students of the veterinary and life sciences, veterinarian nurses, laboratory staff, and pet and livestock owners.

 

About the authors

Prof. Dr. Heinz Mehlhorn (Düsseldorf, Germany) has investigated parasites, their transmission pathways and significant control measures for over 40 years. He has published more than 20 books and 250 original publications and received 25 patents on antiparasitic drugs, some of which he uses at his university spin-off company Alpha-Biocare (founded in 2000). As a university instructor he had the pleasure to introduce many students to the topics in parasitology. Many of them are now professors or in leading industrial positions. In television and radio broadcasts he regularly informs the public about relevant parasitological problems. 

Reviews

“This is a guide to common parasites of common animals kept as companions or for production purposes. … The intended audience is veterinarians, students, and people who keep animals. The book is a good combination of scientific and layman’s language and meets the needs of the intended audience. The author has a wealth of experience in parasite control and has published extensively on this subject.” (Tessa Marshall, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2017)
