Overview

This book focuses on the application of epidemiologic principlesand techniques to problems regularly faced by veterinary practitioners. Numerous examples from the veterinary literature indicate how experience with patients can be used to explore issues of importance in the practice of veterinary medicine while controlling for bias, confounding, and chance. The first part of the book focuses on the application of epidemiology in medical decision-making.

The second part focuses on the epidemiology of disease in populations and outbreak investigation. A glossary of epidemiologic terms and an extensive bibliography are also included. The Second Edition includes myriad updates to reflect the expanding use of epidemiologic methodology in clinical research.

This book serves as both a teaching resource for veterinary epidemiology and a reference on the application of epidemiologic methods in veterinary clinical research.
