Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Karen L Campbell, DVM, MS, DACVIM, DACVD (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: Four chapters in this 319-page book are devoted to parasitic, bacterial, viral, and fungal diseases of zoonotic concern in companion animals, the fifth chapter discusses the special considerations associated with immunocompromised individuals, and the sixth and final chapter discusses pet bites.
Purpose: The purpose is to discuss zoonotic issues associated with household pets, and a major emphasis of this book is on infection control measures. The editors' goal is to point out risks in a balanced manner that promotes safe and appropriate pet ownership in order to enable pet owners to enjoy the benefits associated with these pets.
Audience: This book will be helpful to individuals working in public health as well as veterinarians working with companion animals and physicians working with pet owners. Public health, veterinary, and medical students also will find this book of interest. The editors include a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine and a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in the division of infectious diseases.
Features: The four chapters on infectious diseases include overviews of the infectious agent (parasites, bacteria, fungi, and viruses) followed by clinical presentations, diagnostic features and management in animals and in humans, ending with a discussion of prevention. The other two chapters contain specific recommendations for reducing the risk of zoonotic infections in immunocompromised individuals and for minimizing and managing pet bites. All chapters have extensive references. The book could be improved with more tables and figures.
Assessment: There are few books written on zoonotic diseases involving companion animals, and this book meets this need. The discussions are somewhat brief, but the excellent f references will be useful for veterinarians, physicians, and public health personnel needing more detailed information about a specific disease.
