The authors describe with the aid of a large number of unique high quality images, the important diseases of cattle encountered by veterinarians in general and farm animal practice. The book covers diagnosis, treatment, prognosis and control. Wherever possible sequential images are used to take the reader through all stages of the disease process highlighting clinical features important in the diagnosis. The chapters are arranged by body system and where appropriate there is a suggested approach to clinical examination. The authors combine their experience of bovine medicine and surgery from working in general practice, and in teaching and research at a university referral hospital. The book is intended as a reference for veterinary educators and practitioners in farm animal medicine, and as a textbook for veterinary students in their clinical years.
