Published Reviews

    "I believe this excellent book is essential to all involved in cattle work. It would be difficult to improve it by a third edition; however, if there were to be one, I would like to order my copy now!" Steve Borsberry, The Veterinary Record, July 2003
    is a very comprehensive reference book, listing the clinical features of over 370 diseases and disorders found worldwide, illustrated with over 750 illustrations and photos....

    This book would have a place in any practice library. In particular, veterinary schools, agricultural colleges and new graduates will find it useful as it gives the reader a chance to 'experience' conditions less frequently seen in practice." Andrew Biggs, The Vale Veterinary Group, Tiverton, Veterinary Review, July 2003
    is an international publication, covering global cattle disorders and helping veterinarians and livestock producers to visually relate to disorders of their cattle. The major emphasis is on clear and diagnostically useful color illustrations-and they are clear and illustrative of the conditions being presented!

    Veterinary toxicologists and clinicians particularly interested in chemically-induced cattle diseases will find excellent illustrations of cattle poisonings...

    This is a very useful collection of visible signs of diseases and disorders from over 100 contributors throughout the world. It serves an important role in 'showing' veterinary students, cattle practitioners, and agricultural professionals the many-faceted effects and often unique lesions produced by infectious and noninfectious agents detrimental to cattle health and large-scale global cattle enterprises."Veterinary Human Toxicology, October 2003
