This is a core textbook covering every aspect of veterinary microbiology for students in both paraclinical and clinical years. The clinical applications to farm and companion animals, which are of relevance to the veterinarians are emphasised. In each case there is a concise description of the groups of micro-organisms, the diseases they produce, immunological aspects and a summary of infectious diseases based on their main clinical signs. Unlike other microbiology books this one gives equal weighting to bacteriology, mycology and virology. The use of tables throughout means that information is easily accessible.
Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease, ...
Veterinary Microbiology is one of the core subjects for veterinary students. Fully revised and expanded, this new edition covers every aspect of veterinary microbiology for students in both paraclinical and clinical years. It provides concise descriptions of the groups of micro-organisms, diseases they produce, immunological aspects and a summary of infectious diseases based on their main clinical signs.
Among the current critical challenges faced by veterinary microbiologists is the need to obtain secure species identification of rare and challenging organisms affecting animals, in a timely manner. These microorganisms can be pathogenic to animals, or can be asymptomatic to the animal vector but cause disease in humans, usually via a foodborne route. Control of zoonoses is also implicated in food microbiology, for example for Salmonella and Campylobacter surveillance in the production of eggs and whole milk.
"Regardless of one's approach to teaching of veterinary infectious diseases, this book should be an excellent instructional tool. Although intended for students in veterinary microbiology, it is extremely comprehensive and has sufficient scope and depth to be used by graduate students as well." (Journal of The American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 June 2012)
"Overall, this is a well-written, logically organized, informative, and valuable resource, which covers both the laboratory aspects and clinical features of veterinary microbial diseases. Both the first and last sections are unique to most microbiology book. This second edition has made substantial improvements over the first edition." (Doody's, 13 April 2012)
"The new edition of 'Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease' is an absolutely first-rate textbook of veterinary microbiology ... When a second-year veterinary student referred to Quinn and others as the 'bright-coloured book', demonstrating to me that we already had it in the library and that students were using it, I could breathe a sigh of relief that they were in safe hands with this superb book." (Veterinary Record, 24 March 2012)
Veterinary microbiology in farm animals is concerned with the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of infection in the individual and with the epidemiology, prevention, and control of infections in the community. It includes microbial diseases of animals that supply food or other products. It also deals with microbial diseases of wild animals for their interrelation with farmed animals. The book encompasses the immunology, microbiology, virology, vaccinology, and epidemiology of animal infectious diseases, especially zoonotic infections. The role of environmental factors in disease emergence and diseases that undermine the sustainability of poultry, livestock, and aquaculture industries are emphasized. Research on the development of strategies that will lead to the prevention and control of animal diseases are also given. This book will serve as an ideal reference for veterinary students, and practitioners who require more guidance with veterinary science.
I coordinate and teach a portion of the professional Veterinary Bacteriology and Mycology course to sophomore veterinary students. This is a 3 +1 credit hour lecture and laboratory course. The course is designed to provide the latest information on all facts of the microbial pathogens of animals of veterinary interest.

Microbiologists focused on diagnostics are clinical laboratory professionals in hospitals, public health laboratories, private medical or veterinary diagnostic laboratories and private companies. In hospitals and laboratories, they run tests on patient or animal samples sent in by doctors or vets. These tests help identify the microbe making a patient/animal sick and can help the doctor/vet with treatment decisions by determining if the microbe is sensitive or resistant to antimicrobial medicines like antibiotics.
As the system of choice for global surveillance programs including National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) coordinated via FDA-CVM, USDA and the CDC, the Sensititre system provides standardized results for confident veterinary susceptibility testing.
Brian V. Lubbers of Diagnostic Laboratory discusses the importance of antimicrobial susceptibility testing as one of the tools veterinary practitioners use for optimizing BRD therapy in the latest Veterinary Microbiology Update.

Bacteriology is a specialized branch of microbiology that deals with the study of bacteria, especially in relation to medicine and agriculture. The primary purpose of the Bacteriology Section is to assist veterinarians and animal owners in providing optimal health care for animals by identifying those bacteria and fungi causing disease and by determining the antimicrobial agents to which the bacteria may respond in vivo. To accomplish this, the lab attempts to isolate and identify those organisms associated with infectious processes as quickly and accurately as possible. Susceptibility testing is performed on those isolates that grow in the laboratory sufficiently to provide meaningful results and are considered contributing factors to the disease process.
Original research papers of high quality and novelty on aspects of control, host response, molecular biology, pathogenesis, prevention, and treatment of microbial diseases of animals are published. Papers dealing primarily with immunology, epidemiology, molecular biology and antiviral or microbial agents will only be considered if they demonstrate a clear impact on a disease. Papers focusing solely on diagnostic techniques (such as another PCR protocol or ELISA) will not be published - focus should be on a microorganism and not on a particular technique. Papers only reporting microbial sequences, metagenomics data, transcriptomics data, or proteomics data will not be considered unless the results represent a substantial advance in knowledge related to microbial disease. Drug trial papers will be considered if they have general application or significance. Papers on the identification of microorganisms will also be considered, but detailed taxonomic studies do not fall within the scope of the journal. Case reports will not be published, unless they have general application or contain novel aspects. Papers of geographically limited interest, which repeat what had been established elsewhere will not be considered. The readership of the journal is global. Papers will be rejected if standards of care of, or procedures performed on animals are not up to those expected of humane veterinary scientists. At a minimum, standards must meet the International Guiding Principles for Biomedical Research involving Animals, as issued by the Council for International Organizations of Medical Sciences.
