The American Association of Swine Veterinarians has published the fourth edition of the Swine Disease Manual, edited by Eric Neumann, DVM; Alex Ramirez, DVM; and Kent Schwartz, DVM.

The fourth edition has been completely revised and updated, and includes new information on clostridial disease, salmonellosis, porcine circovirus and much more.

The Swine Disease Manual provides a concise overview of diseases and syndromes affecting hogs; it also serves as an informative reference for students, instructors, practitioners, technicians, facility workers and any personnel employed in the pork production sector.

The 170-page soft-cover book groups diseases by etiologic agent. For each disease, it includes information on the occurrence, history, etiology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical signs, lesions, diagnosis, treatment and control. The revised book also includes a series of tables to aid you in diagnosis and provide a quick overview of diseases affecting a single body system.

The Swine Disease Manual is available for $25 per copy, plus shipping and handling costs. To order the manual online, contact AASV at (515) 465-5255.
