Sheep medicine / Philip R. Scott

Main Author: Scott, Philip R.Language: inglese.Country: Regno Unito - UK .Publication: London : Manson Publishing/The Veterinary Press, 2007Description: 336 p. : ill. ; 26 cm.ISBN: 1840760494; 9781840761498.Abstract: The author has many years experience in both farm animal practice and commercial sheep farming. In this book he focuses on state-of-the-art clinical medicine and relates it to issues of sheep welfare and husbandry. He takes into account the relationship between the veterinarian and the farmer by dealing with veterinary clinical examination and inspection of husbandry practice, along with subsequent practical and cost effective advice that the veterinarian will have to discuss with the farmer. The book describes and illustrates the important diseases of sheep encountered in general practice, their diagnosis, treatment, prognosis and control. It is divided into chapters based upon each body system and, where appropriate, chapters open with a suggested approach to clinical examination of that body system. Many of the chapters conclude with self-assessment exercises featuring typical clinical cases. The book will be of value to veterinarians in practice and training, animal scientists and agricultural advisors, and scientists interested in animal welfare. Each chapter of this completely revised and updated book opens with a recommended approach to clinical examination of the featured body system, rather than simply providing a listing of disorders and diseases. The book also guides readers through all stages of the disease process highlighting the critical clinical features important in the diagnosis. Ancillary tests available to veterinary practitioners are detailed, emphasising their practical applications and cost limitations. Several self-assessment exercises featuring typical clinical cases affecting each body system are collected in a revision chapter at the end of the book. Diseases and disorders are included with the common differential diagnoses followed by the specific diagnosis and recommended treatment(s). The book is invaluable to veterinarians in practice and training, animal scientists and agricultural advisors, and scientists interested in animal welfare.Subject: Pecore-malattie List(s) this item appears in: IZS Sicilia - Area Catania
