Cherry Hill, America's most trusted equine expert, teams up with
Richard Klimesh, a professional farrier and her frequent writing
partner, to address the twin topics of hoof care and horseshoeing.
Proper hoof care is one of the most important contributors to a
horse's health and well-being. Without sound, well-maintained
hooves, an otherwise healthy horse can become lethargic, grouchy,

The symbiotic relationship of man and non-human animals is the result of a long intertwined history of the evolution of biological, social and cultural needs. This book explores the development of that relationship. The use, abuse, care, dedication and devotion that have been part of our history living with other animals. Complex, changing and with competing demands the issue of animal welfare can be seen as a `wicked' one, with poor animal welfare reflective of a poor system. The aim of this broad survey of animal welfare is to understand why those animal-keeping practices are the way they are and what we need to do to change them. This book will be of interest to researchers, workers and students of animal welfare and anyone interested in exploring the relationship of man and animals.
Clinical examination is a fundamental part of the process of veterinary diagnosis. Without a proficient clinical examination and an accurate diagnosis it is unlikely that the treatment, control, prognosis and welfare of animals will be optimised.
This book will assist veterinary students in their understanding of farm animal clinical examination and act as a quick reference for clinicians who are called upon to examine an unfamiliar species. It will also provide a more detailed account for experienced clinicians in their continuing professional development.
The authors provide a simple, explicit and reliable method of examining cattle, sheep, pigs and goats of all ages in the search for diagnostic information.
Lameness is one of the main conditions affecting cattle and is considered a major welfare problem with significant impact on animal productivity. This well-established practical book explores the issue and provides a fundamental guide to prevention and hoof care. In particular, it covers the incidence and costs of lameness, the structure of foot, with its function and possible inflammation, hoof trimming, and the treatment of common diseases.Authored by one of the field's research leaders, the 3rd edition includes updates on hoof trimming protocols, new insights on the structure and function of the digital cushion, and an examination of diseases such as digital dermatitis and sole ulcer.Expert practitioners as well as students will benefit from this new edition of Cattle Lameness and Hoofcare, being an ideal resource for cattle farmers, hoof trimmers and vets.
Contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) represents a major obstacle to cattle production in Africa and elsewhere. The disease appeared to be under control but made a spectacular comeback about a decade ago affecting areas previously known to be free from infection and disease. The effect of CBPP on cattle population in newly affected areas is devastating. Chronically affected areas suffer from decreased cattle productivity and lingering deaths. The purpose of this manual is to provide guidelines and easy reference source for countries to evolve their own national planning policies, strategies and control options in dealing with outbreaks of CBPP.

With information ranging from physiology and acid-base balance to fluid therapy for specific conditions, Equine Fluid Therapy covers fluid treatments in both adult horses and foals, highlighting the unique physiologic features, conditions, and differences in foals. Well-illustrated throughout, the book begins with an overview of the physiology of fluids, electrolytes, and acid-base, then moves into practical information including equipment, monitoring techniques, fluid choices, and potential complications. A final section offers chapters on blood transfusions, colloids, parenteral nutrition, and hemodynamic monitoring. Equine Fluid Therapy is an essential reference for equine practitioners, specialists, and researchers.

3* Doody's Star Rating (R) Proper handling and restraint are essential to the welfare of captive animals, allowing them to be examined, groomed and treated in ways that contribute to their optimum quantity and quality of life. The aim of the book is to prepare future or current veterinarians and veterinary technologists, technicians/nurses, and assistants to be able to handle animals more safely and gain the confidence of animals and their owners. In turn, they will be able to instruct owners in proper animal handling methods, reducing the risk of physical injury or mutual infectious diseases. Covers more species and has greater depth in handling and restraint methods of domestic animals than any of its predecessors and current competitors. No other handling book provides this breadth information on the possible zoonoses (animal to human diseases) that might be encountered in handling apparently healthy animals. Restraint methods are well described but not in a list or "cookbook" way, as there are always nuances in handling each individual animal that require individual adaptations. Throughout the book, the author emphasises that each animal is an individual and each handling environment provides its own advantages and disadvantages: handling an animal safely, humanely and efficiently requires practical knowledge of the species' normal behaviour. This is explored in detail in each of the species-based chapters, which cover proper handling of domestic household and laboratory animals, as well as farm and ranch animals where safe handling aids the producer in both humane practice and greater profitability. After reading this book, the practitioner or student will be versed in the most basic part of the art of veterinary medicine: the safe handling of animals. The author's podcast 'Better Animal Handling' is released every Tuesday at http://www.buzzsprout.com/688886, discussing content in the book and describing effective, humane animal handling with emphasis on safety measures to prevent injury and the transmission of zoonotic diseases.
