The American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV) announced March 24 the publication of the fifth edition of the Swine Disease Manual, edited by Drs. Eric Neumann, Alex Ramirez and Kent Schwartz.
Orders for the book are being accepted for immediate shipment via the AASV website.
AASV noted that the book provides a "concise overview of diseases and syndromes affecting swine. It serves as an informative reference for students, practitioners, producers and others working in the swine industry."
The new publication reflects the many changes that have occurred in the 10 years since the fourth edition was released, including updated information on African swine fever, Senecavirus A and swine enteric coronavirus diseases, AASV said.
The softcover book is 191 pages of text, with an index, and includes a section on swine industry terminology and a handy chart of common abbreviations. A concluding section of tables serves as a resource to identify and compare possible disease agents affecting a specific body system, AASV said.
The Swine Disease Manual, fifth edition, is available for purchase at http://ecom.aasv.org/sdm for $30.00 per copy, plus shipping and handling.
