?The value of this book cannot be overstated. As a student, many years ago, there were no comprehensive textbooks on sheep medicine, so I was lucky to have Professor Kym A Abbott as an inspiring lecturer. This book is needed by students!? Following on from Professor Abbott's first book, The Practice of Sheep Veterinary Medicine, this new text remains the ideal reference for veterinarians in farm animal practice, veterinary and animal science students, agriculturalists and sheep producers. Principally addressing sheep health, welfare and production matters in Australia, this book also covers issues that are of relevance in many other countries of the world where sheep are raised. Sheep veterinary specialist Professor Kym Abbott and his co-authors inform the reader of the science underpinning the occurrence of disease syndromes, giving special attention to commonly investigated problems related to nutrition, reproduction and helminthiasis. Other disease conditions of sheep are discussed in subsequent chapters; first on the basis of presenting signs in the case of lameness and sudden death ? conditions in which signs can be attributed to disorders of a variety of body systems ? and then on a body-systems basis. This new edition thoroughly revises and expands on the previous text, adding a review of the systems and strategies available to improve the welfare of sheep in extensive farming systems, a chapter on pain relief, analgesia and anaesthesia for sheep, and a chapter on metacestodes. The text is illustrated with more than 150 full-colour images and photographs.
