The definitive and authoritative text on cattle diseases in New Zealand and Australia

This extensively revised edition of what is the definitive textbook on diseases in cattle in New Zealand and Australia is written from the perspective of the veterinary practitioner encountering the diseases in cattle on a farm. The reader is provided with a detailed outline of the diagnostic methodology based on clinical examination of body systems, with confirmation by ancillary tests and responses to treatment.
The principal authors and guest contributors bring a wealth of practical, academic and research experience to this text. It covers all the important diseases of cattle, with particular emphasis on clinical examination, diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, lameness, mastitis, and reproductive disorders. The chapter on practical therapeutics for the cattle veterinarian is of great value for veterinary students, and during on-farm consultations.

‘This book remains the ultimate textbook on diseases of cattle in Australasia. The book will be an essential reference for cattle practitioners throughout New Zealand and Australia and will have applications in other countries where cattle are kept under similar conditions.’ — Professor Emeritus Ivan Caple AM, University of Melbourne



‘Definitive is an easily overused word, but when a book takes a decade to reach press from conception, under the stewardship of such a highly regarded team of authors, there’s a good chance that we are dealing with the facts of the matter. This is a fine example of what trans-Tasman collaboration can produce.’ — Derek Johnson, Vetscript
