Reviews

"The text is well organized and thoroughly researched and referenced... this book is highly recommended for small ruminant practitioners as well as for anyone who works with goats" (Vet Med Today, 15 June 2010) "The second edition of Goat Medicine is the enhanced and updated version of the original, invaluable resource. The text is well organized and thoroughly researched and referenced. Special effort was made by the authors to address goat health issues relative to tropical and subtropical climates. This, as well as inclusion of extensive information on foreign animal diseases, makes this text an extremely useful global reference. The authors' personal experiences, combined with results of a thorough search of the veterinary literature, have resulted in the most comprehensive references on goats currently available. This book is highly recommended for small ruminant practitioners as well as for anyone who works with goats." ( JAVMA, June 2010) "This much-needed second edition is of the highest quality. There is an increasing interest in goats in North America, and, worldwide, goats are of great economic and social importance. This book will be used by goat practitioners and others as the bible for goat medicine." ( Doody's , March 2010) "This textbook presents a great deal of scholarly information." ( The Veterinary Record , February 2010)
