Pig Ailments: Recognition and Treatment
|This clearly written, non-technical book is essential reading for all those who own, or care for pigs. It covers all the principal diseases and abnormalities that occur in pigs. Written by an experienced veterinary surgeon and acknowledged specialist in pig medicine Covers all the principal diseases of breeding animals, both male and female Examines all major pig ailments and considers their clinical signs and diagnosis as well as their treatment, prevention and control Discusses those aspects of pig management that have an impact on the incidence of disease and which lead to a reduction in the productivity of the breeding herd.
About the Author: Mark White is a Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, with whom he is registered as a 'Specialist in Pig Medicine'. In 1993 he was the youngest veterinary surgeon to acquire the Royal College's Diploma in Pig Medicine. Mark is a specialist in pig diseases, a consultant veterinary advisor on swine management and health and writes extensively for professional veterinary journals.
Gut Efficiency - The Key Ingredient in Pig & Poultry Production
|An edited collection of current reviews by world-leading authorities in swine and poultry nutrition and production. The basic theme is the interaction between nutrition and the gut ecology as a means to enhance health, performance and profitability. The development of the porcine gut and intestinal ecosystem and their impact on health and disease are covered in-depth. There are also summaries of the roles of specific feed ingredients.
ATLAS OF PIG DISEASES - FULL-COLOUR PICTURES
"Porcine Meat Inspection" : Post-mortem Examination Disease Images in Color"
4th in the highly acclaimed series of Meat Inspection Handbooks (U.K. Canada USA).
Illustrated and indexed textbook of inspecting pork carcases for disease conditions such as pericarditis, pneumomonia etc. The full colour photographs make this Meat Inspectors' manual into a "recognise disease conditions" atlas that is easy to use for untrained people e.g. wild boar hunters and home-butchered meat enthusiasts, as well as professional meat inspectors in commercial abattoirs providing a public health & food safety service to prevent foodborne disease. Basic instructions in porcine anatomy, disease and food-safety-related matters is included. The book is useful for wild or home-killed meat consumers and vetarinarians doing autopsy investigations. This pocket book is also useful for hog-breeders and rearers who want to interpret abbatoir condemnation data or simply get an idea what a sow, boar or grower may have died of.
Dr. A. Grist is a University Lecturer and author of "Bovine Meat Inspection" (UK Canada USA), "Ovine Meat Inspection" (UK Canada USA) and "Poultry Meat Inspection" (UK Canada USA).

FREE LEAFLET on Papular Dermatitis: download (.PDF 360Kb)
Papular dermatitis (PD) is a term for a rash of small raised red spots occasionally detected in live pigs, but these skin lesions are most often noticed when pig carcases are inspected at the abattoir - they become more obvious after going through the scalding tank. Often they are caused by a hypersensitivity reaction (similar to an allergy) to Sarcoptic mange mites (Sarcoptes scabei).

Guide To Antimicrobial Use In Animals
Editors: Guardabassi, Jensen and Kruse
Covers companion animals, food animals & fish farming
The first book to offer practical guidelines on prudent, rational indications and economic and safe applications of antimicrobial medicines and growth promoters (digestive efficiency enhancers) in animals with emphasis on preserving the efficacy of antimicrobial drugs that are clinically important in human medicine. Drawing on multidisciplinary expertise to offer independent scientific advice on a controversial area that is crucial to both human health and animal welfare. General chapters cover issues such as human health risks and the problems of resistance to antibiotic drugs. Specific chapters are dedicated to particular groups of livestock. Suitable for veterinary practitioners working in small or large animal medicine, aquaculture and animal production as well as vet students, veterinary research workers and people working in veterinary public health and resistance to medicinal products in European, USA & International situations.

Handbook of Pig Medicine
by Peter G.G. Jackson & Peter Cockcroft
Cambridge University UK Veterinary School
"Handbook of Pig Medicine" provides the knowledge needed to recognize, diagnose, treat and control pig diseases in practice. This useful manual and reference book deals with medical, surgical and breeding problems in pigs, haematology, and includes high quality photographs and diagrams to complement written descriptions of clinical signs, symptoms and production effects.
Clinical examination of the individual pig and the investigation of herd problems are covered in detail, along with a study on pig population medicine. Each body system is considered with special attention to clinical signs, diagnosis and treatment. Additionally, chapters in the book discuss obstetrics, pig haematology and biochemistry as well as differential diagnosis.
Other topics covered include organic and outdoor pigs; problems of the pet pig, sampling, euthanasia and post-mortem examination. This practical textbook is of interest to veterinary students and practitioners and gives them the confidence to carry out an effective clinical examination and gain the comprehensive and required knowledge of pig diseases.
Production Diseases in Farm Animals
Includes CD of Proceedings of International Conference on Production Diseases in Farm AnimalsHigh producing farm animals are permanently challenged by a variety of factors: lack of proper nutrition (deficit/surplus), housing systems, infections and stress. The incidence, course and outcome of production diseases are changing continuously. Therefore, new information on prevention, diagnosis and treatment of production diseases is needed.
Infection and infectious diseases associated with livestock production Effects of dietary ß-glucans on nonspecific & specific immunity in weaners Effect of dietary ß-glucans on oxidative & antioxidative status & growth performance Influence of organic nutrition & housing on immune system & metabolism of finishing pigs Cow's colostrum feed additive in weaning diet improves gut health of piglets Postweaning Multisystemic Wasting Syndrome (PMWS) in growing swine Alternatives to growth-promoting antibiotics & antibiotic feed additives Immune system activation increases tryptophan requirement of post-weaning pigs
These problems are complicated by the discussion of animal welfare, the rapid changes in agricultural production and the economics of production. The following key topics are handled: alternatives to growth-promoting antibiotics; chronic inflammation and animal production; animal behaviour and welfare in intensive production systems; epidemiology of production diseases; new techniques in immunoprophylaxis; nutrition-immunology and production-immunology relationships; phosphorus nutrition - animal health and environmental concerns; application of genomics to production disease; role of specific fatty acids in animal health, reproduction, and performance; trace mineral nutrition and metabolism
