Completely rewritten, this edition has expanded coverage of zoonotic viruses and the diseases they cause, and viruses and viral diseases of laboratory animals, poultry, fish, and wildlife. The concept of new emerging and reemerging viral diseases reflects the new perspective this concept has brought to veterinary and zoonotic virology and related fields. Part I presents fundamental principles of virology related to animal infection and disease. Part II details the properties and clinical features of the viruses that afflict animals and describes their treatment and control. It includes comprehensive coverage of animal viruses, viral diseases, and viral zoonoses. It covers veterinary and zoonotic virology from the perspective of pathogenesis of viral infections, as well as from the perspective of disease prevention and control.

Praise for the Second Edition "The information is clearly presented, current, and easy to read...The book contains information not available in other texts of this type and would be a valuable addition to any personal or institutional library." --AUSTRALIAN VETERINARY JOURNAL "This book is very well-written and reflects the enthusiasm of the distinguished authors for the subject matter. The text is directed primarily at veterinary students and is entirely appropriate for this readership. This reviewer has regularly recommended the previous edition to veterinary undergraduates at the Ontario Veterinary College, and will continue to recommend the Second Edition." --CANADIAN VETERINARY JOURNAL "Veterinary Virology is a well-worked text, coming as close as any available to the task of reconciling the enormous advances in basic virology with the needs of those interested in the associated animal diseases." --W. PLOWRIGHT, THE VETERINARY RECORD -- Reviews
