An exploration of the history of veterinary medicine from the ancient world to the present as well as an examination of the development of man's relationship with animals.

This comprehensive book is an exploration of the history of veterinary medicine from the ancient world to the present as well as an examination of the development of man’s relationship with animals through early domestication, usage for food, fibre, traction and transport to current therapies and companion animals.

The development of the discipline of veterinary medicine is explored through the transition from art to science and man’s deeper understanding of animals through research and investigation. It is now possible to read both the recorded 4000-year history of animal disease and veterinary development together with the story of the animal-human relationships and welfare as one cohesive text, with extensive backup.

The book is organised so that it can be read in a linear manner, or for those researching a particular topic, by direct access to specific content. The species covered in detail are equine, bovine, ovine, caprine, porcine, canine, feline, avian and aquatic, on every continent.

The History of Veterinary Medicine and the Animal-Human Relationship is both an informative read and a definitive reference text for veterinary historians, veterinary history societies, veterinary librarians and archivists.
