Description : The devastating impacts of natural disasters not only directly affect humans and infrastructure, but also animals, which may be crucial to the livelihoods of many people. This book considers the needs of animals in the aftermath of disasters and explains the importance of looking to their welfare in extreme events. The authors explore how animals are affected by specific disaster types, what their emergency and subsequent welfare needs are and the appropriate interventions. They describe the key benefits of management of animals to populations and discuss preventative measures that can be taken to reduce risk and build resilience. They also include a summary of recent debates and public policy advances on animals in disasters. The book covers livestock, companion and wild animals, with case studies to show how the concepts can be put into practice. It provides a standalone text for students of disaster studies and management as well as professionals and NGOs who require an entry-level introduction to the subject.

Description : There are approximately 5,780 vets in the UK seeing horses regularly and 800 final year students per year studying equine. Equine emergencies (e.g. Musculoskeletal, Respiratory, Ophthalmic or Foal) are regular occurrences: most vets are not called out regularly enough to become specialists, but do need to know enough to treat these emergencies. The idea of this book is to be a quick practical reference guide that a vet could keep handy in such emergencies. Currently there are no other easy to use pocketbooks on this subject in the market. The existing Equine Emergencies texts are either aimed at horse owners or are too detailed to be useful in this context, very large and include uncommon equine emergencies and advanced techniques that are irrelevant to the mixed practitioner. - Suitable for all equine practitioners - Concise and practical layout and content - Accessible online downloads

Description : This publication comprises the proceedings of the Vaccine Cell Substrates 2004 conference. The purpose of this conference was to review current data and progress in the field of cell substrates, discuss the continued use of existing tests and the appropriateness of new ones at this time, and develop consensus recommendations on how to address these issues, by either recommending implementation or identifying research gaps that preclude decision-making. Scientific topics covered oncogenicity of cellular components, both latent viruses and cellular DNA, viral adventitious agent test methods, level of assurance provided by the current tests, bovine (and porcine) viruses in (primarily) bovine-derived raw materials, and bovine spongiform encephalopathy agents as potential contaminants of cell substrates. Also presented were tests that ensure the safety and quality of novel vaccine cell substrates for investigational vaccine production. Academia, regulators, the vaccine industry and the testing industry developing, regulating or testing viral vaccines will greatly benefit from the wealth of new findings.

There are detailed sections on general and inherited disease, the organ systems and infectious and parasitic diseases; on nutrition and feeding; on first aid, poisoning, and nursing the sick dog; canine dentistry and hernias; on behavior and behavioral problems. Invaluable advice on choosing a dog and building kennels is included as well as such topics as understanding pet insurance. This book is destined to become the standard work on canine health care and management, the essential manual for anybody who takes a serious interest in the welfare of dogs.

Description : Globally, the way the animal production industry copes with infectious diseases is changing. The (excessive) use of antimicrobials is under debate and it is becoming standard practice to implement thorough biosecurity plans on farms to prevent the entry and spread of pathogenic micro-organisms. Not only in farm animal production, but also in facilities where companion animals are kept, including in veterinary practices and clinics, awareness of the beneficial implications of a good biosecurity plan has raised. The book Biosecurity in Animal Production and Veterinary Medicine is the first compilation of both fundamental aspects of biosecurity practices, and specific and practical information on the application of the biosecurity measures in different animal production and animal housing settings.

Description : This book offers a broad overview of the theory and practice of care planning in veterinary nursing, answering three key questions: What are nursing care plans? Why should nursing care plans be used in practice? How should nursing care plans be used in practice? It provides basic definitions and explanations which will be useful to those unfamiliar with nursing care plans. For those veterinary nurses and technicians who are using nursing care plans, the content stimulates debate and discussion, by covering some of the philosophical and theoretical aspects of nursing and drawing comparisons and contrasts between the veterinary and human nursing roles and contexts. There is a pressing need for veterinary nurses to establish themselves as professionals and develop their unique role within the veterinary care team. Nursing care plans are a core tool to support that development. It is hoped that veterinary nurses may borrow tools from the pages of this book or use it as a resource design their unique care plans: either way, this practical guide will support the application of care planning, no matter the species of the animal kingdom for whom you are caring.
