Most of the common illnesses that affect humans do not affect pets in the same way and vice versa. The viruses that give animals things like coughs, colds and the flu are different from the ones that cause these illnesses in people and they don’t spread back and forth between humans and animals. Some of illnesses will make pets sick as well, but some will not. Veterinary parasitology is the study of animal parasites, especially relationships between parasites and animal hosts. Parasites of domestic animals, (livestock and pet animals), as well as wildlife animals are considered. Veterinary parasitologists study the genesis and development of parasitoses in animal hosts, as well as the taxonomy and systematics of parasites, including the morphology, life cycles, and living needs of parasites in the environment and in animal hosts. Using a variety of research methods, they diagnose, treat, and prevent animal parasitoses. The book Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosis is meant for students of veterinary sciences, field veterinarians, diagnosticians and teachers. 285 p.
