Infectious Diseases of Livestock

All infectious diseases of livestock (cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, horses, donkeys and mules) worldwide.

The definition of livestock in this work encompasses cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, horses, donkeys and mules. In addition to the 28 protozoal and nine rickettsial diseases in Part 1, chapters are included on the main vectors of diseases (e.g. ticks, tsetse flies, Muscidae, Tabanidae, Culicoides midges and mosquitoes), the main principles/methods of control of infectious diseases, and infectious diseases of particular importance at the wildlife/livestock interface. Part 2 contains 83 diseases caused by viruses and virus-like diseases, and Part 3, 80 diseases caused by bacteria (including mycoplasmas), fungi and algae, as well as a small number of conditions of unknown or uncertain aetiology.

Each disease is dealt with in terms of its introduction, aetiology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical signs, pathology, diagnosis, differential diagnosis and control. A comprehensive list of references is provided for each disease. To facilitate readability, the references are numbered in the text.
