About The Book

Mastitis is one of the most common diseases in dairy cattle throughout the world and it is also one of the most costly, resulting in reduced milk production and extra treatment costs. This invaluable book covers all aspects of the subject and is essential reading for veterinary surgeons and students, farmers and also those involved in the practical care of cattle.

Considers what mastitis is, what causes it and how to control it. Provides an in-depth examination of the milking machine and the milking routine in the context of the incidence and spread of mastitis. Analyses mastitis records and their use. Examines in detail the diagnosis of mastitis and its treatment. Discusses summer mastitis, and udder and teat conditions predisposing to mastitis. Contains useful appendices providing a checklist for investigation and flowcharts for the approach to treatment both in lactation and at drying off
