This innovative book presents the fundamental aspects of basic immunology and the most important dog and cat infectious diseases in an illustrated and educational way. The accuracy of the contents, together with the detailed illustrations, will help the veterinarian to consolidate his or her knowledge on this subject. Also, the extensive teaching experience of the authors gives the piece a didactic and simple tone when treating this complex discipline.
