Veterinary Parasitology is one of the most important disciplines in the curriculum of Undergraduate and Postgraduate degree courses in Veterinary Science. Parasites are well known for their complicated biology, life cycle patterns, morphological characteristics, host preferences, disease transmission, pathologic effects and economic losses. Understanding Veterinary Parasitology in a smart way necessitates granulation of information. This book presents the entire subject of Veterinary Parasitology in a comprehensive but granulated manner so that the reader finds it very easy to learn and memorize the subject. This book covers portions from General Veterinary Parasitology, Veterinary Helminthology, Veterinary Entomology and Acarology, Veterinary Protozoology as per the current VCI Syllabus as well as the revised VCI Syllabus. This book is prepared with primary focus on Under graduate students in Veterinary Science studying Veterinary Parasitology in addition to Post graduate students in Veterinary Parasitology, Veterinary graduates appearing for competitive/entrance examinations such as ICAR-NET, JRF, SRF, UPSC, CSIR-NET, ICMR-NET, Civil services examinations, State Public Service Commission examinations, Quiz competitions and other competitive examinations. Information on parasites is given under separate headings such as host-parasite list, common names and scientific names, diseases/lesions caused, vectors and disease transmission, morphological features, illustrative representation with description on eggs of helminths, wing, arista and egg characteristics of insects, antiparasitic drugs and antiparasitic vaccines to name a few. Multiple choice questions and Fill in the blanks type questions along with answer keys are also provided. In addition, frequently asked subjective questions including short answers and essay type questions are also provided. Reading this book before going for an exam pertinent to Veterinary Parasitology will definitely boost up the confidence on the subject and help the student to recall and reproduce the information in a precise manner. This book is unique and hopefully the first of its kind in the discipline of Veterinary Parasitology published so far in India or elsewhere in the world. The authors are sure that this book will definitely remove the "Fear factor" among students in handling the subject of "Veterinary Parasitology".
