The new, third edition of the "gold standard" in the field has been completely revised and updated, reflecting large animal internal medicine as it is practiced today. In a single, comprehensive volume, it covers virtually everything the busy practitioner needs to know on the subject. Using a problem-oriented approach to the diagnosis of diseases of horses, cattle, sheep, and goats, it teaches readers how to diagnose based on what they observe and what the laboratory and diagnostic tests reveal. Complete lists of common, less common, and uncommon diseases associated with particular signs or symptoms are given in easy-to-find boxes, and the clinician is given an approach to each manifestation of disease and a method to work toward a diagnosis. Readers will also find guidance on treating problems symptomatically, a method that is commonly used in everyday practice. In addition, interpretation of abnormalities is made easier with complete lists of diseases associated with a given laboratory abnormality provided in handy boxes.
