Pig Diseases

Author: D. J. Taylor

Publisher: 5m Publishing

ISBN: 9780950693286

Category: Swine

Page: 410

View: 9430

The first edition of this book was written as student notes, but demand from veterinarians, veterinary students and farmers led to its publication. It is intended primarily to describe diseases of pigs present in the UK and Europe, those that threaten the European pig industry or those which may yet be identified here. It deals mainly with conditions found in intensive units and can therefore be used worldwide. Conditions which are uncommon in such intensive units may be dealt with in less detail. The descriptions of diseases and the measures adopted for their control are based on a mixture of personal experience, review of the literature and, in the case of the newer syndromes, word of mouth or case reports. This edition reflects the increasing concern of the veterinary profession and public in the UK about welfare, meat quality and general safety. The account of each disease is supplemented with an opinion on the humane endpoint for slaughter, and on risks to humans to be expected from each disease and therapy.

The Pig Farmer's Veterinary Book - A Complete Guide to the Farm Treatment and Control of Pig Diseases

Author: Norman Barron

Publisher: Read Books Ltd

ISBN: 1447492994

Category: Health & Fitness

Page: 142

The Pig Farmer's Veterinary Book is aimed at any one who keeps pigs or has a general interest in keeping pigs or their well being. Taken from the author's preface: It is not meant to replace the veterinary surgeon on the farm, as of course in the control of any disease, a proper diagnosis is the first essential. Clinical symptoms may be confusing and faulty treatment may be introduced if this is not correct, but an understanding of the possibilities regarding treatment, should encourage help to be sought with greater confidence. Emphasis throughout the book, however, is upon the environmental conditions which play so vital a part in connection with keeping an animal so artificially reared as the pig usually is. Many chance remarks by pigmen and farmers, together with the assistance of my veterinary colleagues, have proved invaluable in enabling me to compile this book and to all these, I would like to express my thanks.
