A concise and practical guide to goat medicine, this book is a readily accessible reference for veterinarians working with goats. It provides all those involved in caprine medicine with up-to-date information on clinical problems and surgical techniques. Each chapter starts with the initial assessment and clinical examination of the patient, together with further investigations, which may aid diagnosis, before considering specific diseases, their diagnosis, clinical signs and treatment. Diseases of the Goat covers assessment, diagnosis, treatment and control of common clinical problems and includes chapters on anaesthesia, disbudding and dehorning, and plant poisoning. Veterinary practitioners and surgeons will find this book invaluable, as will veterinary and agricultural students; it is a key reference source for goat farmers, breeders, indeed anyone involved in goat keeping.
Excellent pages, a little edge and cover wear.
