$fmt$Preface
	Like the 6th edition, the 7th edition of Veterinary Clinical Parasitology has been prepared under the auspices of the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP), with contributions of illustrations from many AAVP members. However, the 7th edition is also a departure from the format that has been used in previous editions. Replacing black-and-white illustrations are new color photographs, and brief text material for each parasite has been added to indicate its distribution, life cycle, and importance. We have also expanded the book to include some important parasites not indigenous to North America. What has not changed in this edition of Veterinary Clinical Parasitology is the emphasis on morphologic identification of parasites of domestic animals. Although immunologic and molecular techniques are being increasingly applied to the diagnosis of parasitism, veterinary practices worldwide still rely primarily on the humble fecal exam and the other microscopic diagnostic techniques that remain the focus of this edition. These techniques, when done by personnel with the expertise to do them properly, remain an accurate and cost-effective means of diagnosing parasitic infections in animals.
	We hope that the changes included in the 7th edition will increase the book's usefulness for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and others who may be involved in the diagnosis of parasitism in animals.
$fmt$Acknowledgments
	We are very grateful to the members of the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP) who provided material for this edition of Veterinary Clinical Parasitology. Members of AAVP took time from their busy schedules to search through slide collections or even take pictures specifically for this book. Appeals for photographs distributed through the AAVP listserv brought responses from as far away as Germany, Brazil, and Australia. Although the source of each figure is credited in the figure legend (with the exception of photos provided by chapter authors), we would also like to list all the contributors here with our deepest thanks:
