This booklet explains the causes of animal diseases, how they are spread and the means available for their control. It covers not only diseases caused by microorganisms, arthropods and helminths, but also deals with metabolic diseases and those caused by toxins. The signs of health and the symptoms to look for when an animal is suspected of being diseased are clearly presented using simple diagnostic keys. Tables are included to assist in diagnosis of diseases in the major farm animals found in the tropics. The book concludes by dealing with general veterinary procedure, including the administration of medicines.
