About this title:
For 45 years "Diseases of Livestock" has been the world's foremost veterinary reference for both veterinarians and livestock farmers and breeders. It uses a differential diagnostic approach which provides essential information for those who contend with the 'blood-and-dung-and-guts' of day to day animal practice. Differential diagnostic charts are provided for each of the seven domestic animals- cats, cattle, dogs, goats, horses, pigs and sheep - giving specialists veterinarians detailed diagnostic direction outside their specialty, and enabling the lay person to attempt diagnosis in the event that veterinary advice is unavailable or to more fully understand the help that a veterinarian may give. In this ninth edition the author has skimmed the cream from the splendid publications of the "Post Graduate Foundation in Veterinary Science" of the University of SydeSydneyhe - publications are written by selected world leaders in each veterinaryciality. As well, the author has been assisted by specialist veterinarians on each of the seven species treated. New features include a complete section on diseases of goats (including a differential disgdiagnosisrt) much enhanced sections on Parasitology and Poisoning as well as a Treatment Guide and Medicines Dosage List. Other areas such as Exotic Diseases and Zoonoses also have been dealt with in detail. This volume contains the distilled wisdom of many world authorities and has been collated in a clear and simple form to be used as a base reference by all concerned with these domestic animals. The exhaustive and detailed cross-indexing has been done personally by the author so that any livestock disease or health query may be directed to the book.
