Guide to terrestrial animal health surveillance

Author(s) : OIE; Ed. 2014

The purpose of surveillance is to provide early warning of disease events and give timely and relevant information to policy makers to enable them to mount a rapid response to reduce the spread and mitigate the impact of disease.
This practical handbook about surveillance is intended to be used mainly by Veterinary Services or other Competent Authorities, their staff and experts as a tool for strengthening the design, implementation and evaluation of surveillance systems for diseases of relevance for terrestrial animals in their country.

One Health
Scientific and Technical Review, Vol. 33 (2)

Author(s) : William B. Karesh, Ed. 2014

In recent years, the concept of ‘One Health’ has gained wide acceptance in the scientific community as well as the attention of the development community, policy-makers and politicians. International bodies such as the OIE, the UN agencies, and the World Bank have adopted a ‘One Health’ approach in their collaborative efforts to control avian and zoonotic influenza with pandemic potential and other diseases of animal origin on both a local and global scale. In this special issue of the Review, governmental representatives, organisational heads and experts on these issues from around the world provide insights and experiences that lead readers through the progression of ‘One Health’ from concept to perspectives to practice.

Animal welfare: focusing on the future
Scientific and Technical Review, Vol. 33 (1)

Author(s) : David J. Mellor & A.C. David Bayvel; Ed. 2014

This issue of the Review, suggested by the OIE Collaborating Centre for Animal Welfare Science and Bioethical Analysis, outlines contemporary thinking about factors that promote or jeopardise the productivity, health and welfare of the wide range of animals used for human purposes.
Short of a present for that special veterinarian in your life, or as a practice present? Look no further... The 34 selected papers are original, written specifically for this Review, and do not appear elsewhere. They provide an easy to read and incredibly interesting global overview of animal welfare issues, which are relevant to all vets and vet students. The Volume is a paperback, and a steal... for the budget conscious this is cheaper than buying online journal articles, and even cheaper if you cajole someone else to buy it for you!

New developments in major vector-borne diseases
Part One: An overview
Scientific and Technical Review, Vol. 34 (1)

Author(s) : S. Zientara, D. Verwoerd & P-P. Pastoret ; Ed. 2015

The first volume of this Review focuses on the most important arthropod vectors (insects and ticks) and describes their taxonomy, biology, competence and development. It begins by defining ‘vector’, ‘vector-borne disease’ and ‘emerging disease’ and provides explanations that are in line with the OIE understanding of these terms. The zoonotic risks of infections transmitted by arthropod vectors are also discussed, as is the genetic resistance of certain vertebrate hosts to infection. In addition, this volume considers the influence of climatic and anthropogenic changes on the distribution of vectors and the infections they transmit. The last part of this volume focuses on surveillance and control methods for these infections. Expected in April 2015.

New developments in major vector-borne diseases
Part Two: Important diseases for veterinarians
Scientific and Technical Review, Vol. 34 (2)

Author(s) : S. Zientara, D. Verwoerd & P-P. Pastoret ; Ed. 2015

The second volume of this Review principally looks at viral diseases, but also considers bacterial diseases and, finally, parasitic diseases. The description of each disease has been updated in accordance with the most recent scientific research, focusing on epidemiology and control. Particular emphasis is placed on emerging diseases (such as infection with the Schmallenberg virus) and diseases that have a zoonotic component (such as West Nile fever). Diseases that have experienced a recent geographic expansion (bluetongue, fever due to the Chikungunya virus) are also discussed. In total, twenty-nine diseases are covered. Expected in August 2015.

Atlas of porcine dermatology

Author(s) : J.M. Gourreau ; Ed. 2015

This Atlas, which has been lavishly illustrated, is the first of its kind and fills a gap in the global veterinary literature. The advantage of this book is that it takes into account all aspects of porcine dermatology (it covers non-infectious diseases and those whose origins are neither parasitic nor fungal), thus facilitating differential diagnosis. An English translation is foreseen end 2015.
