About this book

This is the most authoritative and thorough reference on bovine medicine currently available. In one volume, it covers cattle in terms of disease, management and therapeutic considerations and is the only major text to do so, as the majority of other available works concentrate on disease, husbandry or fertility. Bovine Medicine is relevant to both tropical and temperate climate regions and much emphasis has been placed on areas of particular economic loss to the cattle farmer, namely infertility, lameness and mastitis, as well as metabolic and infectious disease. The contributions to Bovine Medicine come from acknowledged experts, they are written in a lucid and accessible style and are supported by a wealth of illustrations, many of which are in full colour. Bovine Medicine has been specifically designed as a working manual to assist with description, diagnosis, treatment and control of problems, rather than merely as a reference source on disease. To this end, references have been deliberately kept to a minimum. Where necessary, however, it does guide the reader to further sources of information.
