About this book

Black's Veterinary Dictionary is much more than a list of veterinary terms; its practical approach ensures that readers gain an insight into the signs of common, and less common, diseases, their diagnosis and treatment. For the 22nd edition much new and updated information has been included and new illustrations added. Entries on dogs, cats, rabbits, exotic animals and breeds of farm animals have been extended. Details of the Pet Travel Service, which has largely replaced quarantine for dogs and cats, have been updated. The re-emergence of old problems such as bovine tuberculosis and the appearance of new ones such as avian flu, bluetongue and Schmallenberg virus are among the thousands of topics covered.

"The most comprehensive source of information on animal health and husbandry available in a single volume."
