This is an amazing manual covering animal functions of all the major domestic animals. It contains an incredible amount of information in one volume. It is written in a simple, easy to understand style, supplemented with many good illustrations. This book was developed to benefit rural people in many areas of the world where livestock still play an important role in village life. It deals with many different animal health related topics, including disease prevention, control and treatment, and the promotion of good animal nutrition. Specifically, the authors hope that this book will be useful for people living in areas where there is no veterinarian available. It is hoped that people who use this book will be able to realize which disease conditions they can handle on their own and when to call for help from more experienced animal health workers.
Normal times to administer animal health products are at preweaning time (when the young animals are still nursing the mother), weaning time, and when the animal is entering the feedlot. Each time has its strong points and drawbacks.

There is no National Health Service or Medicaid for animals, or National Institutes of Health to organize research into animal health. Yet we spend substantial sums of money on animal health despite this and do so in a disorganized way.

There isn’t one conversation about animal ethics. Instead, there are several important ones that are scattered across many disciplines.This volume both surveys the field of animal ethics and draws professional philosophers, graduate students, and undergraduates more deeply into the discussions that are happening outside of philosophy departments. To that end, the volume contains more nonphilosophers than philosophers, explicitly inviting scholars from other fields—such as animal science, ecology, economics, psychology, law, environmental science, and applied biology, among others—to bring their own disciplinary resources to bear on matters that affect animals. The Routledge Handbook of Animal Ethics is composed of 44 chapters, all appearing in print here for the first time, and organized into the following six sections: I. Thinking About Animals II. Animal Agriculture and Hunting III. Animal Research and Genetic Engineering IV. Companion Animals V. Wild Animals: Conservation, Management, and Ethics VI. Animal Activism The chapters are brief, and they have been written in a way that is accessible to serious undergraduate students, regardless of their field of study. The volume covers everything from animal cognition to the state of current fisheries, from genetic modification to intersection animal activism. It is a resource designed for anyone interested in the moral issues that emerge from human interactions with animals.

The contents have beenthoroughly updated and reorganised to make sure it is a reallypractical book for day-to-day use in the laboratory. Thefirst section of the book covers principles applicable to allspecies, for example husbandry, handling and the education andtraining required by scientists and technical staff working withanimals in the laboratory. Later chapters focus on specificspecies or groups of species. New to this edition: • Reflects changes in European legislation and theirimpact on national legislation • Covers recommendations for the education and trainingof those carrying out animal experiments across Europe • New chapters on ethical considerations and balancinganimal welfare with science • New information on environmental enrichment forlaboratory animals • Covers advancements in anaesthesia and analgesia andtechniques • Spiral bound for ease-of-use as a bench-topreference This book is ideal for all personnel carrying out scientificprocedures using animals, particularly during training and also forthe new researcher. It will also be essential reading forstudy directors designing research programmes, animal techniciansand veterinarians working with laboratory animal species.

COST (European Cooperation in the field of Scientific and Technical Research) is an intergovernmental initiative in science and research intended to promote the coordination of nationally funded research in Europe. Four working groups discuss the housing of animals, their environmental needs, refinement of procedures, genetically modified animals, and cost-benefit analysis. Based on the activities of these working groups, this book provides the European best practices for individuals and institutions working with laboratory animals. The text also discusses the ethical evaluation of experiments and procedures involving animals.

The benefit of an adequate framework for the management of animal health emergency operations has been repeatedly shown over the years, highlighting a need to build and upgrade capabilities to effectively and efficiently manage animal health emergency operations at all levels. This need can begin to be met through the guidance provided in this manual. Equipped with practical examples, samples and guidelines, this manual supports countries and relevant local, national, regional and international organizations as they prepare for and manage operations during an animal health emergency. The manual is designed to be used in line with the 'Good Emergency Management Practice: The Essentials' manual, applying Good Emergency Management Practice (GEMP) principles and a One Health approach, and providing a global view of how to act during the peacetime and emergency phases of animal health events. This global manual is presented in such a way that veterinary services and relevel local authorities in countries around the world can use the information therein as guidance to create or adapt their own systems, and build a customized emergency operations management manual.
