Learning how to recognize and treat parasites is easier with this outstanding resource! Diagnostic Parasitology for Veterinary Technicians, 5th Edition features clear and concise discussions of the most commonly encountered internal and external parasites. Chapters are organized by parasite group — including nematodes, cestodes, trematodes, protozoans, arthropods, and leeches — and include a detailed description of the group, with special emphasis on morphology, life cycle, and important parasites. Then in each chapter, material is conveniently organized by host species: dogs, cats, horses, ruminants, swine, birds, lab animals, fish, and reptiles. In full color, with a convenient spiral binding, this resource offers step-by-step guidelines for collecting samples, performing lab procedures, and communicating effectively with clients and other members of the veterinary team.

    • NEW case studies provide students with more opportunities to apply what they have learned, and bring to life a subject that can be dry and difficult. 
    • UPDATED information throughout provides the most up-to-date coverage of the parasites most often seen in veterinary practice.
    • NEW! End-of-chapter matching exercises, online activities, and updated Thoughts for Discussions questions make it easier for students to study and review. Flash cards on the Evolve companion website help students learn and memorize key facts about the major parasites, including audio pronunciations.
    • Clear, concise coverage simplifies information on the most commonly encountered internal and external parasites, preparing students for credentialing exams and the veterinary clinic. An appendix lists the parasites of each species and shows their location in the text, making information easy to find.
    • Workbook/textbook format provides students with immediate review tools through matching exercises and questions for thought and discussion at the end of each chapter.
    • More than 470 full-color photos show exactly what ova, adult parasites, and parasitic diseases look like, so students can identify them more easily when viewing lab samples. High-quality life cycle drawings help vet techs discuss prevention and control strategies with clients.
    • Step-by-step guidelines in the Laboratory Procedures chapter describe how to gather samples and how to perform the laboratory techniques used in identifying parasites.
    • Emphasis on the zoonotic potential of parasites helps in alerting clients and other health care workers to the significance of zoonotic parasites and shows ways to prevent transmission of a zoonotic parasite, condition, or syndrome from animals to humans.
    • Chapter on terminology familiarizes students with the basic language and classification scheme of parasitology for more effective communication with clients and colleagues.
    • Logical chapter organization follows the sequence of the lab work taught in parasitology classes, beginning with a basic overview of external parasites, internal parasites, and nematodes, followed by chapters that go into detail of the parasites by host species.
    • Summary tables show how to categorize parasites, and include such categories as body systems affected, taxonomic grouping, host species, and location in host.
    • Table of parasites at the front of the book is arranged by host species and includes page numbers for cross-reference throughout the book.
    • Coverage of exotics includes more images and detailed discussions of the parasites that affect them. 
    • Heartworm section helps students recognize and treat heartworms with an in-depth discussion of the performance and interpretation of diagnostic tests for this major parasite.
    • Vet Tech Threads design focus student learning with chapter outlines, chapter objectives, key terms, and Technician Notes in every chapter.
    • NEW case studies provide more opportunities to apply what you have learned, and bring to life a subject that can be dry and difficult.
    • UPDATED information throughout provides the most up-to-date coverage of the parasites most often seen in veterinary practice.
    • NEW! End-of-chapter matching exercises and online activities make study and review easier.
