The second revised edition consists of the general and systematic Veterinary Bacteriology. The general Bacteriology part contains introduction and history of Microbiology, classification and nomenclature of bacteria, microscopy and micrometry, bacterial stains, structure and morphology of bacteria, growth and nutritional requirements of bacteria, types and sources of infection, pathogenicity, virulence, determinants of virulence, epizootic and enzootic diseases, bacterial toxins, bacterial genetics (mutation, transformation, transduction, conjugation), plasmids and antibiotic resistance.

The systematic Bacteriology part contains updated information on history, morphology, classification, resistance, natural habitat, genome, isolation and colony characteristics, biochemical and antigenic properties, pathogenesis, disease produced and diagnosis of each bacterial genus associated with animal and human health. The revised edition will also support the person engaged as Government Veterinarian, independent animal health practitioner, or associated with the laboratory for the diagnosis of animal diseases.

The book comprises the diagnostic techniques for each bacterial genus ranging from staining parameters to molecular tools with useful colour photographs.
