Overview

Diseases of the Goat has become well established as a truly invaluable tool for veterinarians. It is a highly practical, concise handbook for frequent reference. The book covers all aspects of goat medicine, from assessment and examination, to diagnosis, treatment and control of conditions. This new edition has been updated and extended, in particular to incorporate the impact of recent developments, such as the geographical spread of diseases into new regions.

There are new chapters on the Geriatric Goat; Inadequate Growth Rate; Biosecurity and Herd Health in order to reflect changes in current concerns and practice and there is also extended and updated material included on surgical techniques and anaesthesia. This edition now includes a section with colour photographs in order to assist diagnosis.
