The farm ruminant industry, which is at the core of livestock agriculture in Europe and the rest of the world, suffers major economic loss every year due to reproductive dysgenesis. Protozoal diseases cause abortion in ruminants and therefore its diagnosis is vital in improving the health and welfare of farm livestock. This book is a collective effort from international scientists involved in an EU COST Action. Carefully selected methodologies, presented in a simple and practical form, means laboratories can carry their research out with precision.
Lameness is the third most economically important disease affecting cattle today, and the single most important welfare issue, especially for the housed dairy cow. The responsibility for dealing with it can fall on everyone involved in the industry, from the stock person right through to the veterinary surgeon. This book is essential for anyone involved in the day-to-day practical health care of cattle.
Laminitis is a painful and potentially devastating disease of the horse's feet and while many horses and ponies recover from an episode, for others it can end their career, or even their life. It is a worry to owners, farriers and veterinary surgeons alike, so this valuable guide aims to shed light on this most unpredictable and traditionally misunderstood disease, offering information in an accessible manner. The facts and diagrams based on x-rays imparted in this guide, from defining laminitis to diagnostics, causes, medical treatment and prevention, will help you formulate a rational approach to the prevention and treatment of laminitis.

This edition reproduces all Stubbs' etchings and is taken from the 1853 printing, the last to use Stubbs' original plates. Including a full text of Stubbs' commentary. George Stubbs (1724-1806) was one of the most original artists Britain has produced. Such is the present reputation of his paintings, with their astonishingly convincing portraits of both animals and people, that it is easy to forget how much his success was based on rigorous scientific observation. In 1756 he rented an out-of-the-way farmhouse where he erected a special scaffolding to hold the cadavers of horses as he dissected and drew. (It is said that he had a particularly strong stomach when it came to smells.) After eighteen months of single-minded dedication Stubbs produced the drawings for the "Anatomy of the Horse", which he later etched himself. The result was a sensation. Letters of congratulation coming from scientists from all over Europe, amazed not only at the perfection of the finished work, but that it had been produced privately, without any patronage. The "Anatomy" remained a textbook for artists and scientists for well over a century, and to this day the strange, spare beauty of these prints continues to fascinate.
The most comprehensive guide to the horse's body - inside and out -
This full colour book by a professional horse physiotherapist is a complete introduction to horse massage. It is a book for everyone who wants to help their horses relax and regenerate after competitions or long rides: horses are very prone to muscular injuries and most owners are keen to keep them in good condition, free from unnecessary discomfort. - Introduction - The Horse's Body - Getting Horses Fit - How Massage Can Help - Massage Techniques - Stretching - Problem Areas - * Step-by-step massage techniques and easy-to-learn stretching exercises and other techniques put the subject into perspective. * "Treatment after competition" chapter explains how horses can be relaxed after exertion. * Complimentary to Hotline To Your Horse, which focuses much more on pure massage and the physiology of the horse.
This second edition of "Horse Anatomy: A Pictorial Approach to Equine Structure" has been completely revised and enlarged. Its original 25 pages of illustrations have more than doubled and now include over 250 individual drawings. All of these drawings have been specially prepared for this new edition by John Goody, and all are fully labelled and annotated in the accompanying legends. The text is primarily intended to explain and in many instances to expand upon the content of the drawings. The basic make-up of the horse is considered with the 'points' of the horse being shown from several different views. Bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments providing the anatomical basis for these surface points are dealt with in some detail, the emphasis being placed throughout on those structures that can be seen or felt from the surface of the body. Component parts of the digestive, respiratory, urinary and reproductive systems are shown in a number of the drawings, as are nerves and blood vessels. Special consideration is given to the structure of the head, with the emphasis on the nasal cavity, teeth, larynx and guttural pouches. The structure of the limbs is also illustrated in considerable detail, especially the foot, and reference is made to injuries and diseases that can result in poor conformation. The wealth of information contained in the book will be of great interest and value to veterinary and equine studies students, to owners, riders and breeders - in fact anyone requiring to know more about the structure of the horse and what makes it one of the most beautiful of animals.
This guide to the recognition and treatment of ailments in cattle features a clear, concise text built around a range of specially taken colour photographs.
Don't look a gift horse in the mouth! He's getting rather long in the tooth! These sayings refer to the fact that a horse's age can be assessed by the state of his teeth.

Research into equine artificial insemination has recently expanded with increasing horse numbers, the developing leisure interest in horse riding and the realization of the economic advantages of artificial insemination. This book provides a detailed reference book on the subject and covers its historical development, relevant equine physiology, current practices and future possibilities. It is extensively referenced to allow further reading into specialized areas.
This standard textbook on the bones, surfaces, movement and conformation of the horse was prepared by R. H. Smythe MRCVS and first published in 1967. Five years later, Dr P. C. Goody, B.Sc., PhD., revised and expanded the book, providing a wide new base of valuable anatomical information. This third edition came to fruition in 1992 when Peter Gray MVB, MRCVS, completely revised and updated the work, bringing a clinical viewpoint to the existing text, and by combining the knowledge of structural characteristics with the known stresses caused by diverse factors such as concussion and conformation, and an examination of spinal dynamics and muscular injuries, enables the reader to understand more easily how and why lameness occurs. The result is a work which will be of inestimable benefit to a new generation of students and horse owners.
This book is the third in a set of four providing a series on controlled reproduction in farm animals. The aim of the series is to provide a general review of the literature dealing with the different ways in which reproduction in the major farm mammals can be controlled and manipulated. The four volumes are effectively an expanded and new edition of a previous work, "Controlled Breeding in Farm Animals" (Pergamon Press, 1983). However, the literature on this subject has expanded so rapidly since the time of the earlier volume, that it is now thought appropriate to publish it in four separate volumes. Buffaloes, goats, deer and camelids have been added to the species covered by the series compared to the previous book. All volumes provide comprehensive reference lists and are fully up-to-date. This third volume focuses on pigs. It will appeal to reproductive physiologists and workers in animal production, animal breeding and veterinary medicine.
