The author has many years experience in both farm animal practice and commercial sheep farming. In this book he aims to take into account the relationship between the veterinary surgeon and the farmer by focussing on the 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. This book describes 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. This book will be of use to veterinarians in practice and training.
