By Paul Barrow, Venugopal Nair, Susan Baigent, Robert Atterbury and Michael Clark
Poultry Health: A Guide for Professionals PDF. Poultry are a major source of valuable high-quality protein for much of the world’s population, so food security is heavily dependent on maintaining poultry health. They are also increasingly important as specialist hobby animals in back-yard flocks. Despite this, veterinarians specializing in the care and health of these important domestic animals are few and far between, and many vets in small animal practice have little real experience of poultry health management and disease. Providing a comprehensive overview, this new handbook will help to plug this gap with 46 chapters of practical and accessible poultry health and management.
- Covers the poultry industry, basic avian biology, infectious and non-infectious diseases and their agents, infection control, and disease investigation and legislation.
- Includes full colour images for ease of identification and diagnosis, in addition to practical guides to disease prevention.
- Considers areas of increasing global importance, such as antimicrobial resistance.
- Written by international experts, this book forms a valuable illustrated resource for veterinary professionals, veterinary students, or those entering the poultry industry.
