Veterinary science, also known as veterinary medicine, is the science concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases which affect the health of animals. The control of such diseases is important because of the economic losses they cause and the potential transmission of pathogens to humans. Safe and effective vaccines are used for the prevention of companion animal diseases, such as feline distemper, canine distemper, etc. The study of anatomy, pathology, physiology, pharmacology, microbiology, toxicology and nutrition forms the foundation of veterinary science and medicine. Apart from these, diagnostic and clinical pathology, management of infectious and non-infectious diseases, radiology, obstetrics, anesthesiology and surgery are important dimensions of this field. Various instrumentation technologies may be applied for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases in animals. These include endoscopy, echocardiography, laser lithotripsy, nuclear scintigraphy, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, etc. This book contains some path-breaking studies in the field of veterinary science and medicine. The topics included herein are of utmost significance and bound to provide incredible insights to readers. It aims to serve as a resource guide for students and experts alike and contribute to the growth of the discipline.
This book establishes the links between specialization in the veterinary sciences and the factors that influence the use of animals in basic science and medicine.
Recent trends toward specialization in veterinary medicine parallel similar trends in the practice of human medicine. W. Jean Dodds, the new editor of Advances in Veterinary Science and Comparative Medicine, has brought together recognized authorities to integrate the legal and ethical implications generated by the issue of specialization. Routine and specialized veterinary practices, including genetic screening, are now associated with clinical trials. This book establishes the links between specialization in the veterinary sciences and the factors that influence the use of animals in basic science and medicine.
James Yeates covers the history of veterinary science, considering the roles of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention in animal health.

Every year billions of animals, from housecats to racehorses to pythons, are treated by veterinarians. The use of veterinary science to treat the health of animals has a long history; for the past five centuries it has developed as our understanding of animals' fundamental biology, pathology, and pharmacology has grown. Rapid global changes expected in the twenty-first century will require the profession to respond proactively, embracing new challenges and opportunities. James Yeates, Chief Veterinary Officer of the RSPCA, introduces the field of veterinary science, covering the history of its scientific and clinical aspects from early practices to recent challenges such as the outbreak of BSE and antibiotic resistance, and considering the differences between human medicine and veterinary medicine. Analyzing the key roles played by diagnosis, treatment, and prevention with regard to the health of farm animals and pets, he relates this to wider aspects concerning public health, such as zoonoses (diseases that jump from animals to humans). Yeates also covers recent "One Health" approaches involving the health of both humans and animals, seen as synergistic, and discusses the challenges for the future of veterinary medicine, including the ethical dilemmas in balancing the interests of owners and animals when they do not coincide. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly.

Research in veterinary science is critical for the health and well-being of animals, including humans. Food safety, emerging infectious diseases, the development of new therapies, and the possibility of bioterrorism are examples of issues addressed by veterinary science that have an impact on both human and animal health. However, there is a lack of scientists engaged in veterinary research. Too few veterinarians pursue research careers, and there is a shortage of facilities and funding for conducting research. This report identifies questions and issues that veterinary research can help to address, and discusses the scientific expertise and infrastructure needed to meet the most critical research needs. The report finds that there is an urgent need to provide adequate resources for investigators, training programs, and facilities involved in veterinary research.

This books discusses topics such as the clinical pharmacology of anthelmintics; the uses in human and veterinary medicine; animal resistance to ATH; and the efficacy of Neem and Pawpaw products against Oesophahostomum spp infection in pigs.

Antiparasitic drugs (ATH) are important tools widely used to maintain animal welfare. As parasites impart a great impact on animal health, these drugs are often essential for the expression of the full genetic potential of production. However, despite the initial success, after years of massive use of anthelminthic drugs , the increase in prevalence of resistant nematodes became a major problem. Anthelmintics are commonly used to treat parasitic worm infections not only in animals, but humans as well. Resistance to anthelmintics is thought to be present in several helminth species, yet it remains poorly studied. This books discusses topics such as the clinical pharmacology of anthelmintics; the uses in human and veterinary medicine; animal resistance to ATH; and the efficacy of Neem and Pawpaw products against Oesophahostomum spp infection in pigs.
