Description of Pathologic Basis of Veterinary Disease 5th Edition (PDF)

Pathologic Basis of Veterinary Disease 5th Edition by James F. Zachary & M. Donald McGavin is a great Pathology book, available in PDF download. Following the enthusiastic reception of the fourth edition of Pathologic Basis of Veterinary Disease both nationally and internationally, the fifth edition continues with the same philosophical approach explaining pathology and its lesions in the context of understanding disease in a chronological sequence of events from both the morphologic and mechanistic perspectives, and with an emphasis on responses of cells, tissues, and organs to injury. Veterinary pathology is a dynamic discipline and since the fourth edition was published in 2006, there have been many new insights into the pathogeneses of existing diseases and new or reemerging diseases, many of which have serious economic and health consequences for animals and humans. As a result, to meet the growing scope of the veterinary curriculum we have added to the fifth edition new and revised materials on pets, livestock, and production animal health, including diseases the USDA/APHIS and the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) consider as “Foreign Animal Diseases” or “OIE Reportable Diseases,” respectively.

The book is not meant to be encyclopedic; specific diseases have been selected either because they are of primary importance in the practice of veterinary medicine or because they illustrate a basic mechanism. We also hope this edition will continue to provide a bridge between students’ understanding of material learned in the basic sciences and the interpretation of results of physical examinations, differential disease diagnoses, imaging modalities, biochemical and molecular diagnostic methods, and therapeutic strategies presented in the students’ clinical years.

The fifth edition of Pathologic Basis of Veterinary Disease has been updated and reorganized such that specific diseases are described under the major domestic animal affected—horses, ruminants (cattle, sheep, and goats), pigs, dogs, and cats. Those disorders and diseases not unique to a single species are grouped under a heading titled “Disorders of Domestic Animals.” We continue to describe disease pathogenesis based on sections covering structure, function, portals of entry, defense mechanisms, and responses to injury, augmented by schematic color diagrams and full color illustrations of lesions. Our hope is that this approach will be helpful to the student (and to their instructors) in their understanding of both pathology and the related disciplines of microbiology, immunology, and infectious diseases. Other additions to the fifth edition include new sections on the genetic basis of disease, diseases of the ear, and diseases of ligaments and tendons and a new chapter on mechanisms of microbial infections.
