From the Back Cover:

The first edition of Goat Medicine sold thousands of copies worldwide and quickly became the definitive reference on goat diseases, their diagnosis, treatment, management and prevention. The fully revised and expanded Second Edition includes detailed discussions on new diseases ranging from bovine spongiform encephalopathy to floppy kid disease as well as major updates on important goat diseases such as scrapie, mycoplasmosis, paratuberculosis, and urolithiasis. Information has also been added on management of transgenic goats and organic goat production.

Goat Medicine, Second Edition begins by outlining fundamentals of goat practice and moves on to systems-based coverage of the goat. Each chapter provides clinical anatomy and physiology of each system alongside information on relevant clinical signs, differential diagnosis, and system-specific disease. The latest information on etiology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, laboratory diagnostics, treatment and control of disease is included.

Additional key topics are covered separately, including subcutaneous swellings, wasting disease, nutrition, anesthesia, sudden death, mastitis and milk production, dehorning and descenting, as well as caprine herd health, and preventive medicine. Now containing full-color images, Goat Medicine, Second Edition will continue to serve as the definitive one-stop reference for veterinary practitioners, academic clinicians, veterinary students, animal scientists, and goat owners.
