The second edition of the Color Atlas of Diseases and Disorders of Cattle again illustrates all the conditions encountered in cattle worldwide. This new edition has been extensively revised and expanded to have more (now 752) illustrations, primarily of live animals.
The revised text now includes sections on management and control for the important disorders. Newer conditions such as necrotic enteritis, toe ulcers, heel ulcers and tail necrosis have been added. The illustrations themselves have been reviewed. Many have been replaced, while others have been added, so that Foot and Mouth Disease has six and Rinderpest seven colour illustrations. Cross-references to other conditions, a major aid to differential diagnosis in the field, have been strengthened.
Over 70 foreign contributors from the Far East (Japan, China) to South America (Brazil, Argentina), Africa (South Africa, Kenya, Somalia) and the United States (Pennsylvania, Florida, Missouri) have been joined by a further thirty from the UK. The emphasis of the atlas remains the visible signs of diseases and disorders in the live animal, and this gives the book a unique scope. This new edition will re-establish the firm place which the atlas already has in the veterinary market for cattle practitioners, government and industry veterinarians, as well as veterinary and agricultural students, and managers of large-scale cattle enterprises throughout the world.
