Ectoparasites are of growing significance in modern veterinarymedicine and a detailed understanding of the biology of theseparasites is fundamental to their appropriate treatment andcontrol. The authors of this book have therefore provided acomplete overview of the biology, and behaviour of arthropodectoparasites along with the pathology and treatment of diseases inlivestock and companion animals of temperate habitats. This is the only up-to-date book available written specificallyfor practitioners and students of veterinary medicine, animalhusbandry and applied animal sciences. Such a unique volume isessential because in veterinary parasitology, ectoparasites such asthe lice, mites, ticks, fleas or dipteran agents of myiasis assumefar greater prominence than in other parasitological disciplines.Ectoparasite infestation of domestic and companion animals,therefore, has overt clinical features requiring a distinctapproach to diagnosis and control. This book has been written withthis in mind. The text takes a unique integrated approach combiningboth ectoparasite biology and veterinary dermatology. In the second edition of this successful book (previously,entitled Veterinary Parasitology), the detailed coverage ofindividual ectoparasite species has been expanded. Up-to-dateinformation of new veterinary drugs and modes of application hasbeen included and the practical clinical relevance of theinformation has been strengthened.


(Veterinary Times)
"The second edition of this book is greatly improved with importantchanges to the appearance of the text and format.... The diagnosticsections on ectoparasites of small animals, such as hamsters,rabbits and guinea pigs, are particularly useful to the veterinarypractitioner or student.... The information contained in this bookis valuable to veterinarians and students of veterinary medicine,animal husbandry and zoology."
