Summary Arthropod-borne Infectious Diseases of the Dog and Cat is an invaluable resource for information on the clinical presentation, pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of the major arthropod-borne diseases of dogs and cats. Also discussed is an array of diagnostic techniques routinely available to veterinarians presented with these diseases. Illustrated in colour throughout, the book incorporates photographs of clinical cases, haematology, cytology and gross and microscopic pathology, which help understand the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases. While its fundamental structure remains unchanged, this new edition adds a chapter on haemoplasma infections as well as a revised chapter on rare, and particularly viral, arthropod-borne diseases of dogs and cats. This new edition is fully updated to reflect the changes and geographical spread of the diseases covered. New for this edition is the inclusion of a series of clinical case studies providing relevant examples of the diseases discussed. In short, the book provides an accessible guide to arthropod-borne infectious disease for veterinarians both in practice and training. With the effects of climate change and increasing international pet travel, this book is a useful addition to every small animal practitioner's library
