9780813828268: Veterinary Pathophysiology

A common goal of human and veterinary medicine is to prevent and cure disease. To reach this goal, there must be a greater investment in the pathophysiology of diseases. Simply put, reductionist methodology fails to answer all of the questions. Pathophysiology represents a new approach to understanding the nature of disease processes, an approach already being embraced in human medicine. By integrating the basic sciences with pathology and the clinical sciences, Veterinary Pathophysiology bridges a significant and widening gulf in the veterinary professional curriculum.

The aim of this trailblazing text is to be scholarly—yet practical—with a focus on the recognition and prevention of early dysfunction. In contrast to modern clinical veterinary medicine, which has focused progressively on the prescription of medications for individual symptoms and signs of disease, this text gives attention to understanding the functional changes that accompany disease. To offset over reliance on pharmacotherapy, Veterinary Pathophysiology offers insight into the interaction of the functional components of the mammalian body and their reaction not only to disease, but also to the risk of imbalances introduced by dietary and therapeutic manipulation.

Veterinary Pathophysiology will supplement existing textbooks in general or introductory pathology, and veterinary internal medicine, by introducing a new framework for thinking about the nature of disease. The integrated problem-based approach of this book addresses the changing needs of veterinary college curricula, and will be a key resource book for problem-based approaches to learning.

Veterinary Pathophysiology is an invaluable text for the practicing veterinarian, as well as veterinary students and instructors in general pathology, pathogenic microbiology, parasitology and immunology, physiology, neurobiology, oncology, toxicology, and pharmacology. This unique text offers students and clinicians the most comprehensive introduction to understanding the interactions between organs and functional systems that underlie infectious and metabolic diseases.

With chapter contributions from 25 international authors, this title is the definitive text and reference in veterinary pathophysiology. It belongs on the desk of every veterinary student, and in the library of every instructor or clinician interested in a deeper understanding of animal diseases.
