Kirkbride’s Diagnosis of Abortion and Neonatal Loss in Animals 4th Edition PDF
Initially, authors were selected to write about abortion diagnostics based on interest or expertise of a particular species, and their manuscripts were to be placed on a Web site linked to AAVLD. It was later decided that a published manuscript would be a better option. The previous edition had 43 chapters, each devoted to a particular aspect of abortion diagnostics or a particular pathogen. It was roughly organized into species sections.
This new edition has fewer chapters with each one devoted to one or two species. It covers conditions affecting cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, and horses, plus newly added chapters covering general approaches to abortion diagnostics and conditions affecting dogs and cats, and, finally, a chapter devoted to the broad topic of abortion and neonatal loss in nondomestic mammalian species.
The intended audience of this new edition includes veterinary diagnosticians around the world, veterinary pathologists, veterinary practitioners, veterinary educators, animal and public health workers, veterinary students, and veterinary technicians.
The format for each chapter begins with an introductory section outlining the pathogenesis of abortions and neonatal loss, a section of special diagnostic techniques, a section of fetal and placental anatomy and physiology, and then detailed descriptions of the various causes of abortion or neonatal loss. In the diseases section, the format is as follows: viruses, bacteria and fungal, nutritional and toxic etiologies, and, finally, miscellaneous causes. The focus for each chapter is disease recognition as well as proper sampling necessary to make a definitive diagnosis.
It is my sincere hope that this publication will enhance our understanding of reproductive disease in animals, will build upon the reputation of previous editions, and will become an invaluable reference that helps decipher abortion and neonatal loss around the world.
