Veterinary obstetrics has in the past been defined as that branch of surgery dealing with the oversight of the female animal during pregnancy and parturition. However, with our increased knowledge of genital diseases of female and male animals, the study of veterinary obstetrics has expanded to include that highly important field. Also, the fields of reproductive physiology, endocrinology, nutrition, genetics, embryology, teratology, anatomy, virology, bacteriology, pathology, surgery, and medicine all supply important necessary links in our chain of obstetrical knowledge. [From the Introduction] This is the Second Edition (the First Edition was published in 1956) of Roberts' all-encompassing work. ("Theriogenology" is a term proposed by D. Bartlett and others to indicate all aspects of veterinary obstetrics, genital diseases and animal reproduction; "therio" = animal or beast and "gen" = coming into being from Greek medical terminology.)
