Diseases transmitted from animals to humans are termed zoonoses and some of them are potentially devastating. At the present time, far more than 250 zoonoses are now recognized in the world. Viruses or zooparasites cause most of those, which have been recently known. Zoonotic diseases are problems of considerable magnitude in every country, particularly where domestic animals are the principal reservoirs of infection since man comes into closest contact with such animals. The book provides vital information on a variety of zoonotic diseases describes their symptoms, treatments and illustrates the management of these diseases in case studies.
