9780813803937: Medicine and Surgery of South American Camelids: Llama Alpaca Vicuna Guanaco

The finest of the few books on medical care of South American camelids-and the only comprehensive account of the subject-this volume appears here in a new edition expanded to include new topics and some reference to Old World camels, along with llamas, alpacas, vicunas, and guanacos. Here, in updated and augmented form, is the premier text on South American camelids, covering biology, nutrition, management, care and handling, diseases, neonatal care and development, toxicology, congenital and hereditary conditions, and pertinent information about various body systems. It also contains basic information about anatomy and physiology and relates that information to more complex systems and clinical procedures.

Revised by the original author, a recognised expert in the field, this edition includes additional material on nutrition and forage grasses.

As South American camelids become ever more common in zoos, farms, and fields, and the problems of their health and maintenance become ever more pressing, this book will prove an essential tool for veterinary and zoo practitioners and researchers. Owners and breeders may also find it useful.
