This book is the result of a thesis written in 1967-68 and defended by the author in 1970 in Mexico City. Those years were different and challenging as Mexico was getting ready to receive equestrian teams from all over the world for the 1968 Olympics. The author, Moises Leonel Barraza, then a veterinary science student, worked with veterinarians as animal assistant during the olympics and the experience motivated him to produce this work. The book contains two areas of work 1. Sketches of a daring diamond design for a quarantaine station in Mexico City's International Airport (As of today, the airport still needs one) and 2: A table of the most important animal and man diseases (zoonosis) with description of the causal agents, its clinical signs and diagnostic methods as well as the recomended immediate course of action if diagnosed. For the researcher, professor, student, zoologist, or veterinarian this book contains valuable information This well collected historical clinical information may also serve as a reference in present studies. The book is in Spanish
