Antimicrobial Therapy in Veterinary Medicine, Fourth Edition, has been restructured, completely updated, and considerably expanded beyond previous versions. Now divided into four sections, highlights of this edition include new chapters on pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic relationships of antimicrobial agents, prophylactic use of antimicrobial agents, antimicrobial chemotherapy for the neutropenic patient, prudent use of antimicrobial agents, and antimicrobial therapy in New World camelids. The Fourth Edition includes coverage of the most recent antimicrobial agents developed for use in human or veterinary medicine.

Chapters on regulation, growth promotion uses, and antimicrobial drug residues are fully revised to reflect extensive re-examination in many countries of the use of antimicrobial agents as growth promoters or in the prevention of disease in animals. Veterinarians, specialists, and students alike will find this book to be an indispensable reference on the general principles, special considerations, and clinical applications of virtually all types of antimicrobials used in veterinary medicine.
