This work offers a practical field manual about camel diseases for veterinarians and livestock practitioners. It was compiled through a workshop involving 20 of the world's leading camel specialists and details some 90 major camel ailments, ranging from abortions to wry-neck syndrome. For each problem, it gives the symptoms of the disease, the causes and simple prevention and treatment methods. It includes both treatments based on Western veterinary science, as well as those tried and tested by local healers and herders. The diseases are organized according to the part of the body affected and the symptoms. A section on procedures explains how to examine a camel, take samples for laboratory analysis and apply various types of medicines. Written in clear, simple language and illustrated with line drawings by African and Indian artists, this sourcebook should be a valuable aid to camel care.
