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.
