Veterinary medicine has its pillars in biology, applied biology, socio-economics, and applied biological sciences. Veterinary medicine is progressing quickly given the depth of the discipline in natural and applied life sciences. This book demonstrates new developments covering a wide range of content, and also covers conventional veterinary medicine as well as seeks to expound knowledge on alternatives to control of livestock diseases. Newcastle disease and helminthosis are among the diseases that affect poultry severely, often leading to mortality and decreased productivity.

This book contains scientific articles that try to explain advances of ethno-veterinary medicine, which is an alternative to conventional veterinary medicine. This book is divided into main sections and subsections. It unleashes information on the current advances in different veterinary science applications. Furthermore, it is now close to over 252 years since the veterinary profession came into existence. This book enriches a remarkable and enjoyable reflection on the holistic and integrated innovative science of veterinary medicine.
