Overview

Antimicrobial Therapy in Veterinary Medicine, Fourth Edition, has been restructured, completely updated, and considerably expanded beyond previous versions. Now divided into four sections, highlights of this edition include new chapters on pharmocokinetic-pharmacodynamic relationships of antimicrobial agents, prophylactic use of antimicrobial agents, antimicrobial chemotherapy for the neutropenic patient, prudent use of antimicrobial agents, and antimicrobial therapy in New World camelids. The Fourth Edition includes coverage of the most recent antimicrobial agents developed for use in human or veterinary medicine.

Chapters on regulation, growth promotion uses, and antimicrobial drug residues are fully revised to reflect extensive re-examination in many countries of the use of antimicrobial agents as growth promoters or in the prevention of disease in animals. Veterinarians, specialists, and students alike will find this book to be an indispensable reference on the general principles, special considerations, and clinical applications of virtually all types of antimicrobials used in veterinary medicine. New edition of most comprehensive antimicrobial therapy text available in veterinary medicine, Restructured, completely updated, and considerably expanded beyond previous editions, New and revised chapters reflect the latest research, development, and regulations, Written by international team of experts, including five editors and 31 contributing authors.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

With 21 expert contributors, this third edition is revised and expanded due, in part, to the crisis of antibiotic resistance in human medicine and to the extensive re-examination of the practice of using feed antibiotics as growth promoters and disease prophylactics in animals.

Editorial Reviews

Lisa Klopp
This is a review text of pharmacology basics, philosophy and use of individual drugs, and treatment of various veterinary species and organ systems in antimicrobial therapy. This is the second edition of a book published in 1993. The purpose is to provide an updated and expanded version of the prior editions. New topics include drug resistance, antiviral therapy, and aquaculture therapies. The author does not state the target audience, but I believe this book will be an excellent reference for students, practitioners, and specialists. The books covers a wide variety of topics. The sections on pharmacokinetics, dynamics, drug interactions, and drug selection and resistance could be difficult topics but are well written and concise. Antiprotozoal therapy is excluded. This book reviews the broad topic of antimicrobial therapy, including mechanism of action, drug interactions, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, drug selection, sensitivity testing, resistance, and discussion of individual drug categories. There are also sections within the textbook that discuss treatment of different species and systems. The book is well-written and easy to read. Examples are pertinent and representative of the points that are highlighted. The figures and diagrams are easily understandable, pertinent to the text, and appropriately placed within the text. I rate this book as excellent in quality and usefulness. It would be an good companion to Greene's Infectious Disease of the Dog and Cat, 2nd edition (W.B. Saunders, 1998). Emergence of antimicrobial resistance in the last few years and new developments in treatment definitely justify the new edition.

Booknews
Thirty-four papers by mainly North American veterinarians cover a wide range of animals, including domestic, farm, reptiles, and aquaculture. The range of antibiotics covered is similarly exhaustive, including beta lactam antibiotics of all kinds, aminoglycosides, animocyclitols, lincosamides, macrolides, pleuromutilins, as well as chemotherapy. Various aspects of the use of antimicrobial drugs, such as interaction and resistance, and principles of drug bioavailability, disposition, selection, and use, are discussed. The editors note that this edition has been produced with an awareness of "the crisis of antibiotic resistance in human medicine" and its possible application to antibiotic use in animals. For this third edition, Prescott (University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada) and Baggot (Victorian College of Pharmacy, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia), the editors of editions one and two, are joined by Walker (at the FDA, he's the director of the Division of Animal and Food Microbiology).

From the Publisher
“Overall, this book provides an excellent resource for the whole topic of veterinary prescribing of antibacterial and antifungal drugs from both a veterinary clinical and a public health viewpoint.”  (Veterinary Record, 31 May 2014)

“The result is a solid textbook highly recommended for any veterinary reference library.”  (Midwest Book Review, 1 March 2014)
