"A much needed, entry-level introduction to veterinary-specific immunology. Aimed at students, it fills a gap in the market and, in doing so, will be a welcome read for anyone requiring an understanding of immunology either for curriculum-based studies, or to build on basic existing knowledge. . . . this book is a welcome addition to any student library, but also as a 'go to book' for the new graduate clinician with its easy to read format and extensive index."
—Melanie S. Lean, Veterinary Record
"...a welcome resource for veterinary and graduate students who are studying the fascinating and increasingly complex subject of immunology."

"The superb illustrations in this book, as well as the clarity of the writing, mean that some of the more difficult concepts in immunology are presented in a way that will facilitate student learning. The clinical examples and review exercises will also assist with this. I highly recommend this book to those involved in teaching immunology to veterinary students."
—Dr. Joan Lloyd, Australian Veterinary Journal
Designed to fill the current gap in resources for teaching veterinary immunology, Basic Veterinary Immunology offers a solid background in the essentials of immunology within the context of veterinary medicine.
The book combines a clinical framework complete with real-world examples to integrate the theory and practice of veterinary medicine. Each chapter begins with a clinically relevant veterinary issue and then presents one aspect of basic immunology in the context of that issue. All chapters include learning objectives and a clinical correlation follow-up section that includes student considerations and a review of the possible explanations for the clinical presentation.
Illustrated with over 250 full-color images and figures that will also be available as PowerPoint teaching aids, Basic Veterinary Immunology and related materials will be made available online to students, faculty, and clinical veterinarians in partnership with the Veterinary Information Network.
Basic Veterinary Immunology will provide students with a good working knowledge of veterinary immunology that will serve them both in the completion of their curricula and in professional practice.
