Sheep and goats are farmed worldwide for meat, milk, skins and wool. This diverse range of uses means that many people rely on these animals as a source of income, food and warm clothing, though they can also be kept as pets. With an accessible structure designed for use in the field, this book provides a general veterinary guide to treating common conditions in these animals.
It addresses veterinary medicines and their uses, on-site surgery, equipment, normal values and vital signs, vaccination, nutrition, dental treatment, poisoning and dermatology. Worldwide disease conditions are also covered in detail, with a particular focus on the welfare of the animal and economic reality.
"It is a useful field guide for the veterinary practitioner to have in her/his car, and is especially useful as it covers both species. I would imagine that many sheep and goat keepers could benefit from this book too."Rosemary Grogono-Thomas - , Veterinary Record
