Description

Sickness and disease can be devastating to a livestock population and, in turn, to farm productivity. Skin diseases are among the most visible and common concerns to livestock health and even many systemic conditions may first manifest themselves in the skin. With the numerous causes of dermatological disease and the importance of controlling disease from both a herd management and public health aspect, diagnosis is imperative.

A Color Atlas of Farm Animal Dermatology is an essential reference for veterinary dermatologists, practitioners, and students alike. Emphasizing recognition and diagnosis, the book combines over 600 color photographs with clear and concise text highlighting clinical features, differentials, and diagnostic information for each disease. Coverage includes both common and uncommon diseases of cattle, goats, sheep and pigs. The atlas is divided into four species-specific sections for easy reference. Disease types covered include bacterial, fungal, parasitic, viral and protozoal, immunological, congenital and hereditary, environmental, nutritional and miscellaneous diseases, as well as neoplastic and non-neoplastic growths.

  • Emphasizes recognition and diagnosis

  • Coverage divided into species-specific sections for easy use

  • Covers all dermatological disease types in cattle, goats, sheep and pigs

  • Includes clinical features, differentials, and diagnostics for each disease

Index.

"The organization of the text is particularly beneficial, with a section devoted to each of the farm animal species. The photos are excellent with no unrepresentative images... beneficial to veterinary pathology residents, veterinary students studying food animal dermatology, and other veterinary pathologists that may be presented with food animal dermatopathology."
Veterinary Pathology

“A unique addition to the literature…dermatologists have been waiting for this book and they are grateful…a 'must have' for veterinarians working with food animals.”  Doody's Reviews

“I particularly appreciated the text accompanying each disease summarizing presenting features, differential diagnosis, and diagnosis, making this much more than a straight atlas in terms of its utility.... I found this to be an extremely useful atlas, capable as serving as a first resource for diagnosis of dermatologic conditions, and I would thoroughly recommend it.”  Journal of the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science
