Description :  This text brings forth latest findings and analyses related to various facets of Veterinary Medicine where ceaseless advancements have been made in the past decades. Both veterinary and human medical sciences have evolved closely, reflecting the interwoven relationship between animals and humans since the onset of civilizations. Given the fact that both humans and animals share common mechanisms of numerous diseases, they serve as spontaneous models for the observation of specific diseases like tumors and heart related ailments. Moreover, the detrimental side-effects and challenges posed by contaminants, particularly over the endocrine axis regulating various bodily functions including fertility have also been discussed, as animals act as sentinels for atmospheric quality. Additionally, the value of animal life in context of health and well-being also makes a substantial contribution to the enhancement of human life, safeguarding against the disturbance of the food chain. The field has widened the scope of influence, encompassing varied fields not limited to just veterinary medical practice. It is hoped that this text will provide readers with detailed overview on current advanced resources in different veterinary science disciplines.
