Description

Human-Animal Medicine is an innovative reference exploring the unprecedented convergence of human, animal, and environmental health, triggering global pandemics and requiring new clinical paradigms. The "One Health" approach calls for greater communication and cooperation between human health care providers, public health professionals, and veterinarians to better address vital issues of emerging diseases and environmental change. This incredibly timely book provides, for the first time, practical guidelines for "One Health" collaborations in a wide range of clinical human-animal health issues, including the H1N1 virus, zoonotic diseases, the human-animal bond, animal allergy, bites and stings, and animals as "sentinels" for toxic environmental health hazards.

Key Features

    • UNIQUE! For each condition, specific steps human health care providers, veterinarians, and public health professionals must take to prevent and manage disease.
    • UNIQUE! Comparative tables of disease signs, diagnosis and treatment in humans and animals for easy reference.
    • UNIQUE! Guidelines to detect and improve environmental factors affecting the health of humans and animals.
    • Occupational health guidelines for preventive care of animal workers including veterinary personnel, farmers, pet store employees, and zoo workers.
    • Treatment of emerging disease issues including zoonoses, H1N1 virus, harmful algae blooms, and animal-related pesticides
    • UNIQUE! Sample protocols facilitate professional communication between veterinarians, human health clinicians, and public health professionals.
    • Legal and ethical aspects of "One Health" that human health providers and veterinarians need to know.
