This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. Laminitis and lameness are the most significant diseases afflicting cattle. BOVINE LAMINITIS AND LAMENESS: A HANDS ON APPROACH PROVIDES veterinarians, researchers and cattle producers with an invaluable and handy resource for managing these problems. With a focus on investigation and control of lameness at the herd level, this book offers guidance on containing situations before they become severe problems within the herd. Based on the most recent research, it also explains how animal behaviour and inadequate production management play important roles in increasing prevalence of lameness and other metabolic diseases.

The sub-title on the cover of this book is ‘A hands-on approach ’ and this is, in fact, a very succinct review of this informative book! Written by veterinary experts from Canada, Sweden, Italy and Germany and with contributors from 14 countries this book is a
comprehensive, but very readable, summary of all issues relating to bovine laminitis
The book follows a logical course by considering the bovine claw and the characteristics of lameness, before considering related topics such as nutrition, housing, water, micronutrients and genetics and conformation before going on to consider
the diseases and their treatments. It concludes by considering the strategies for controlling lameness in the dairy herd. Unlike the text books of a few years ago this one is easy to read and has a plethora of great full colour pictures – in fact it looks as if some 40-50% of its pages are pictures!
A book that is to be recommended to all cattle veterinarians and the owners/managers of large dairy units.
