This subject provides an introduction to the study of disease processes in animals. The mechanisms by which infectious and non-infectious agents cause developmental, degenerative, circulatory, inflammatory and neoplastic diseases in animals will be studied. Genetic, microbial, parasitic, immunological, metabolic, nutritional and toxic causes of disease will be considered. Students will be introduced to the host defence and immune system and will develop the descriptive skills so necessary in gross and microscopic pathology.
