Practical handbook focused on the main uterine diseases affecting cattle and written by renowned authors with a wide experience in the control of these diseases in the field. Up-to-date information is provided for all these pathologies (clinical metritis, clinical/subclinical endometritis, pyometra...), with an emphasis on their diagnosis and treatment.
Handbook entirely dedicated to parasitology and parasitic diseases in bovine species based on a handy, visual approach of the topic. It includes the most essential contents and many significant tips and graphic resources (life cycles, clinical signs, diagnosis, treament guidelines, etc.) to turn this atlas into a reference in its field.
Mastitis represents a major endemic disease of dairy cattle, being a very complex disease that depends on several factors and usually presented subclinically in herds. The treatment and control entails high costs and losses for the industry. The author has developed an accurate, visual review analysing the most highlighted features of this condition and pointing out the main control measures to prevent it.

Manuel Fernández Sánchez, author of the best seller The Oestrus Cycle of the Cow. A Photographic Atlas, now brings us his second book Reproduction and ultrasound examination in cattle, published by Servet. It offers a detailed comparison of the uterine and ovarian structures in all phases of the oestrous cycle. This publication is characterized by an original introduction to both photographic and ultrasound images of the different anatomical structures and their pathological conditions. In this way, the author succeeds in simplifying the interpretation of reproductive diagnosis using ultrasound, by guiding the reader and enabling him to visualise the structures on which ultrasonography is performed.
The cow’s peripartum period from a practical and dynamic point of view, explained through theoretical explanations and a huge collection of clinical cases. Normally, disorders or conditions occurring in the peripartum period are not independent events; they are the result of the interaction of several events occurring over time. The authors highlight here the importance of assessing bovine pathologies as a whole. It is the only manner for the clinician to anticipate conditions that may appear during the peripartum period.
