Thematic publications 

The Veterinary Laboratory and Field Manual

Author(s) : S. Cork, R. Halliwell; 3rd Ed., 2019

"What a fantastic resource… 
- it’s got pretty much everything you need in there in one place and is still small enough that you can lug it around with you; 
- it isn’t overly technical i.e. it has just the right level of detail such that the important things are not lost, as is often the case with these technical manuals, is logically structured and easy to find your way around, and; 
- the pictures paint a thousand words.”
CEO, Wildlife Health Australia

While there are more capable diagnostic laboratories now than in the past, it remains evident that these services have often had a limited impact on the wellbeing of farmers in isolated rural communities or on the health and productivity of their livestock. Farmer and community contact remains predominantly with animal health extension services at the district level where resources are generally limited and laboratory support and facilities are poor.

Pictorial guide to the diagnosis of glanders

Author(s) : OIE; Ed. 2012

Bluetongue in northern Europe

Author(s) : C. Saegerman, F. Reviriego-Gordejo, P.P. Pastoret; Ed.: 2008

Bluetongue (BT) is an infectious, viral and vector-borne disease of improved breeds of sheep and some species of deer that is of major international importance. The infection is usually unapparent in cattle, which acts as reservoir for the virus. However, some serotypes such as serotype 8 (BTV-8), which recently caused a severe epizootic of BT in northern Europe, exhibit a more important virulence in cattle.

Author(s) : Pedro N. Acha, Boris Szyfres; Ed.: 2005

Volume I : Bacterioses and mycoses ; Volume II : Chlamydioses, rickettsioses and viroses; Volume III : Parasitoses (sold together)
Most of the recent emerging diseases are of animal origin, and nearly all are potential zoonoses. Over the last decades, nearly one new emerging disease has appeared each year; around 75% of them are zoonotic in nature. Recent West Nile fever and avian influenza epidemics, or the present rabies upsurge in Eastern Europe, bear witness to the vitality of emerging diseases the world over.

Livestock Trypanosomoses and Vectors in Latin America

Author(s) : M. Desquesnes; Ed.: 2004

This study of livestock trypanosomoses in Latin America, the first of its kind, provides an overview of the situation as it was between 1990 and 1995, and will serve as a benchmark for future studies and comparisons. The study’s appraisal of mechanical vectors and their harmful effects focuses on the damage that Tabanids can cause, and provides statistics on their impact on the livestock industry. These statistics alone provide sufficient justification for undertaking seasonal strategic control measures against these insects, whose effect on livestock, while often localised and short-lived, has not thus far been given proper consideration.
