This up-to-date, descriptive atlas dedicated to the main endoparasites of dogs and cats is an invaluable tool for practicing veterinarians given the importance of these parasites in small animals. The authors, renowned specialists in the field, discuss the most salient aspects of each parasite and use visual aids to describe in practical terms the best means of detection. The standout feature of the atlas is its diagnosis-oriented format; each plate is divided into five closely related sections, aiding interpretation of the content and making this atlas an essential reference in the field of small animal parasites.

She was awarded a diploma from the European Veterinary Parasitology College (EVPC) and is Professor of Parasitology and Parasitic Diseases at the Department of Animal Health of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, UCM. She heads the Parasitic and Infectious Diseases Clinic of the Veterinary Hospital in Madrid and is a founding member and current President of LeishVet, the European expert group on canine leishmaniasis. She is the Spanish representative for the European Scientific Council for Companion Animal Parasites (ESCCAP) and President of the Spanish delegation (ESCCAP Spain). Author of numerous publications and scientific papers on infectious and parasitic diseases of small animals, she specialises in the sanitary control of feline and canine communities, and has conducted research on various zoonoses including leishmaniasis, babesiosis, toxoplasmosis and giardiasis. She directs the diagnostic and research laboratory Pet-Parasite Lab at UCM.

Dwight D. Bowman

As a parasitologist, the focus of Dr. Bowman’s research has been on the biology of parasitic infections, testing of various agents for efficacy against parasites, disinfection of parasites in manures and sewage sludges, and improved diagnostics. Dr. Bowman graduated with honors in Biology from Hiram, College in Hiram, Ohio, in 1974. He received his MS and PhD degrees in parasitology from Tulane University in New Orleans, in 1976 and 1983, respectively. He was a postdoctoral scientist/lecturer at the School of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Wisconsin Madison from 1984 to 1987. He joined the faculty of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, in 1987, and is currently a Full Professor in Parasitology. He teaches courses in the veterinary, graduate, and undergraduate curricula of the University.

In 2008, he was awarded the Distinguished Veterinary Parasitologist Award by the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists. In 2009, he was awarded the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching from the State University of New York. In 2009, he was also awarded Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine’s first Community Service Award, and a recipient in 2010 of the Kaplan Family Distinguished Faculty Fellowship in Service-Learning. He is an honorary Diplomate in the Parasitology section of the American College of Veterinary Microbiologists. He is currently president of the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists. He was a founding member of the Companion Animal Parasite Council which officially began in 2002, and has just completed a two year term as president. He is author of 5 textbooks on parasitology including Georgis’ Parasitology for Veterinarians. He has published around 200 peer-reviewed papers on the topics of veterinary parasitology, and in addition to being an ad hoc reviewer for over 20 journals, serves or has served on the Editorial Boards of Journal of Zoo and Wildlife Medicine, Comparative Parasitology, Veterinary Parasitology, International Journal for Parasitology, and the Compendium of Continuing Education for the Practicing Veterinarian.
