Die fur Landwirte ausserst nachteiligen Ereignisse der BSE-Krise legen die Vermutung nahe, dass sich im traditionell Erzeuger-dominierten europaischen Agrarnetzwerk ein Wandel vollzogen hat. Haben verbraucherschutz- und handelspolitische Entwicklungen zu einer Schwerpunktverlagerung in der gemeinsamen Agrarpolitik der Europaischen Union gefuhrt? Die Arbeit zeigt in einer netzwerkanalytischen Betrachtung die vielfaltigen Bestimmungsfaktoren deutscher und britischer BSE-Politik der Jahre 1988 bis 1996 auf. Fragen nach der Bedeutung des Rahmenakteurs -Europaische Union- und der Handlungsfreiheit nationaler Regierungen im vermeintlich vollstandig vergemeinschafteten Politikfeld Agrarpolitik stehen dabei im Mittelpunkt."

Sheep Medicine, Second Edition describes key sheep diseases encountered in general practice along with their diagnoses, treatment, prognoses, control, and, where appropriate, post-mortem features. The book is divided into chapters covering each body system. Each chapter of this completely revised and updated book opens with a recommended approach to clinical examination of the featured body system, rather than simply providing a listing of disorders and diseases. The book also guides readers through all stages of the disease process highlighting the critical clinical features important in the diagnosis. Ancillary tests available to veterinary practitioners are detailed, emphasising their practical applications and cost limitations. Several self-assessment exercises featuring typical clinical cases affecting each body system are collected in a revision chapter at the end of the book. Diseases and disorders are included with the common differential diagnoses followed by the specific diagnosis and recommended treatment(s). The book is invaluable to veterinarians in practice and training, animal scientists and agricultural advisors, and scientists interested in animal welfare.
An invaluable resource for animal scientists, veterinarians, and biomedical researchers, this books shows that in the past twenty years, the knowledge base about the physiology and biology of the pig has grown phenomenally. This is because of the animal's rapid rise in popularity as a model subject in biomedical research and the ongoing research concerning its use worldwide as a food source.
The Biology of the Domestic Pig offers an integrated description of the full scope of current knowledge. The editors have included chapters on the expanding fields of immunology, endocrinology, and genetics. Growth, digestion, nutrition, respiration, excretion, and reproduction are extensively treated. The final chapter covers the emerging applications of transgenics, metabolite replacement therapy, and xenotransplantation (the use of animal tissues in humans).
The one-humped camel, or dromedary, is one of the world's hardiest domesticated animals. A vital source of transport, meat, milk and income for pastoralists in the Sahel, East Africa, the Middle East and South Asia, the camel can carry heavy loads for days in some of the world's most hostile conditions. But even camels fall ill. A Field Manual of Camel Diseases is the first practical guide to camel diseases designed for use in low technology environments. The manual details some 80 major camel diseases and conditions, ranging from abortions to wry neck syndrome. For each disease, the authors give the disease signs, its causes, and simple prevention and treatment methods. Both scientific and tried and tested traditional treatments are presented, thus enabling the veterinarian or livestock practitioner to make the most appropriate choice in the prevailing circumstances. A section on procedures explains how to examine a camel, take samples for laboratory analysis and apply various types of medicines.
Johne's Disease is a chronic, progressive intestinal disease caused by infection with Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (Map) that affects primarily ruminant animals. In recent decades there has been growing concern over the lack of effective control of this disease and questions have arisen regarding the possibility that Map infection could be a cause of some cases of Crohn's disease in humans. This report presents a broad outline of the steps that should be taken to control Johne's disease, reduce the spread of Map, and minimize effects of the disease in animals. The report also describes the weaknesses of our current research agenda and provides recommendations for a new research strategy to resolve the question of whether there is a link between Johne's and Crohn's diseases.
The determination and management of performance-limitation in sport horses is very challenging, especially within a short time period before an important competition. In this book, experts disclose their experience on: what do we know about the poor performance horse? And on the gastrointestinal tract: medical, nutritional and surgical considerations; could it be the heart? Could it be the muscles? Monitoring orthopaedic health in competition horses; could it be the foot? Could it be neurological? Cases where physiotherapy helped to make a difference; And, could it be respiratory?
First aid should be part of every rider's basic knowledge.
