This companion to Infectious Diseases of Mice and Rats makes practical information on rodent diseases readily accessible to researchers.

This volume parallels the three parts of the main volume. Part I, Principles of Rodent Disease Prevention, briefly examines the requirements for maintaining pathogen-free rodents, factors in designing health surveillance programs, and other laboratory management issues.

Part II, Disease Agents, is an easy-to-use reference section, listing diagnosis and control methods, the potential for interference with research, and other factors for disease agents ranging from adenoviruses to tapeworms. It covers bacteria, viruses, fungi and common ectoparasites, and endoparasites.

Part III, Diagnostic Indexes, presents alphabetical listings of clinical signs, pathology, and research complications and lists infectious agents that might be responsible for each.
