The fifth edition of Antimicrobial Therapy in Veterinary Medicine, a comprehensive reference on veterinary antimicrobial drug use, has been revised and updated to reflect the rapid advancements in the field of antimicrobial therapy.

Encompassing all aspects of antimicrobial drug use in animals, the book-which was co-edited by Steeve Giguère, professor of large animal internal medicine and the Marguerite Hodgson Professor of Equine Studies at the College of Veterinary Medicine-provides detailed coverage of all types of antimicrobials relevant to animal health.

Divided into sections covering general principles of antimicrobial therapy, classes of antimicrobial agents, special considerations and antimicrobial drug use in multiple animal species, the text is enhanced by tables, diagrams and photos.

The book also was edited by John F. Prescott, University of Guelph in Guelph, Ontario, and Patricia M. Dowling, University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
