Veterinary Virology: At a Glance

 
S Nandi (Author)
Synopsis

Virology is the study of viruses causing infectious and contagious diseases in man and animals. There are many viral diseases namely FMD, PPR, sheep pox, goat pox, IBR, bluetongue, swine fever, rabies, canine parvovirus etc prevalent in India affecting different species of animals and causing enormous economic losses. All the diseases caused by pathogens except viral diseases can be treated with antimicrobials. As there is no specific treatment available for viral diseases or it is expensive, it is of paramount importance to diagnose the viral diseases promptly and accurately in order to implement the control strategy in an effective and efficient manner. The viral diseases are mostly controlled by immunizing the animals with potent and efficacious immunoprophylactic agents.

With the implementation of new trimester/semester systems, the students have to face a number of quizzes, midterm and final examinations. This system evaluates the student’s learning capability and teacher’s teaching techniques on a regular basis. Mostly objective type and short notes are asked in the examination. Further, a number of organization/institutions hold regular examination for admission in various degree programmes, award of merit scholarship and appointment on various jobs based on objective type questions.

It is therefore hoped that the book will be extremely useful for teachers as well as students of veterinary sciences and other institutions.
