The Merck Veterinary Manual (9th Edition) is the single most comprehensive reference for animal care information!
The Merck Veterinary Manual (9th Edition) is the single most comprehensive reference for animal care information! The Merck Veterinary Manual (MVM) has served veterinarians and other animal health professionals as a concise and reliable animal health reference for over 50 years.
MVM has more than doubled in volume to accommodate advances in scientific knowledge and the expansion and specialization of the veterinary profession over the years. The 9th Edition MVM reflects both the remarkable advances in veterinary science and the emergence of new pathogens and new diseases since the publication of the 8th edition of the Manual:
вЂў Every chapter has been carefully reviewed and either revised or rewritten as needed.
вЂў In addition, more than 30 new chapters or subchapters were added to address emerging diseases (eg, West Nile encephalomyelitis, chronic wasting disease, Lechiguana, Nipah virus infection, and postweaning multisystemic wasting syndrome, to name a few), and to better cover advances in diagnosis and treatment (eg, imaging techniques, pain management, ophthalmic emergencies).
вЂў Expanded coverage of specialty fields such as cardiology, neurology, ophthalmology, toxicology, and emergency medicine has been undertaken, as well as reorganization and expansion of the section on exotic and laboratory animals to reflect the increasing popularity of exotic petsвЂ”and to highlight their potential to transmit zoonotic diseases.
вЂў The pharmacology section has been strengthened with the addition of chapters on chemical residues and veterinary dosage forms and delivery systems.
вЂў The table of zoonoses continues to grow; we have added information on clinical manifestations in humans, as veterinarians continue to be at the forefront of control of zoonotic diseases and protection of public health.
