The new, third edition of the "gold standard" in the field has been completely revised and updated, reflecting large animal internal medicine as it is practiced today. In a single, comprehensive volume, it covers virtually everything the busy practitioner needs to know on the subject. Using a problem-oriented approach to the diagnosis of diseases of horses, cattle, sheep, and goats, it teaches readers how to diagnose based on what they observe and what the laboratory and diagnostic tests reveal. Complete lists of common, less common, and uncommon diseases associated with particular signs or symptoms are given in easy-to-find boxes, and the clinician is given an approach to each manifestation of disease and a method to work toward a diagnosis. Readers will also find guidance on treating problems symptomatically, a method that is commonly used in everyday practice. In addition, interpretation of abnormalities is made easier with complete lists of diseases associated with a given laboratory abnormality provided in handy boxes.

"...uses a signs & symptoms approach & includes such topics as approach to diagnosis, special diagnostic techniques, diseases of the organ systems, & disorders caused by biological & environmental agents."

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Dusty W. Nagy, DVM, MS (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This extensive book covers the internal medicine of both equine and ruminant species, using 56 consulting editors and 182 contributing authors. The previous edition was published in 1996. There are seven sections divided into 50 chapters.
Purpose: The book fills an important niche, as there are relatively few available that cover both equine and ruminant species. The book focuses more heavily on medicine of equine and cattle, although the coverage of sheep and goat medicine is improved over previous editions.
Audience: It is designed to be a reference covering medical conditions of large animal species for the practicing veterinarian. It is suitable for any large animal practitioner or veterinary student needing a reference for large animal internal medicine subjects. The information is sufficiently detailed to be a reference for practicing internists and it is understandable enough to serve as a detailed source of information for veterinary students.
Features: A wide range of physiologic, pathologic, and toxicologic conditions of large animal species during all phases of life is covered. The information is current and includes many newer diseases. The section on preventive medicine and therapeutics is timely as the profession focuses more on prevention of disease processes rather than simply treating them once they arise. The section on sample collection and test interpretation is particularly valuable to the practitioner because it discusses diseases that may cause particular abnormalities. With most books, you must know the disease before information can be found regarding abnormal test results. Each chapter contains tables, charts, and figures that greatly enhance the written material. One particularly useful feature are the differential diagnosis tables. These give a list of possible differential diagnoses, ordered by commonality, for clinical signs present in the patient. The book has few shortcomings. For the pure food animal practitioner, the coverage of small ruminants may not be adequate and there is no information on swine. It is also occasionally difficult to locate specific information, as some subjects are covered in varying degrees of depth in different sections.
Assessment: This is a good book for practitioners and veterinary students alike. It also provides information in a detailed enough fashion to be a reference for residents and internists. It is fairly unique in its field as it covers equine and ruminant species. It is stronger in equine medicine than Veterinary Medicine: A Textbook of the Diseases of Cattle, Sheep, Pigs, Goats, and Horses, 9th Edition, by Radostits, et al. (W. B. Saunders, 2000). The inclusion of more illustrations and coverage of new and emerging diseases warrants the new edition.
From the Publisher
If you purchase only one textbook for large animal practice, be your work mainly equine or farm animal, this is the one you should buy. This is a truly global large animal veterinary medicine textbook, while retaining its relevance to UK and Irish practitioners. It is suitable as a reference book for students, general practitioners and specialists alike, and is well worth the price as a comprehensive review of large animal medicine.
