This is a signs and symptoms approach to diagnosis which makes identifying and managing large animal disorders easy. It is the first comprehensive, single-volume text to use a problem-oriented approach to the diagnosis of diseases of horses, cattle, sheep and goats. The hallmark of this text is its introduction and discussion of clinical signs to show practitioners how to diagnose based on what they observe and that laboratory and diagnostic tests reveal.
