Encyclopaedia of Veterinary Medicine, Surgery and Obstetrics



    THIS encyclopædia, edited by Prof. George H. Wooldridge, professor of medicine and hygiene at the Royal Veterinary College, London, is written by a panel of forty-eight veterinarians, all recognised authorities in their special subjects. Intended to be of use to general practitioners, owners of valuable animals and medical men interested in animal diseases, pathological detail is reduced to the minimum necessary for the understanding of clinical conditions. In keeping with the growing importance of the subjects, new chapters on deficiency diseases and endocrinology have been introduced in this, the second, edition. The work is comprehensive, authoritative, well illustrated, and arranged on a systematic as opposed to an alphabetical plan. A table of contents, author and subject index make reference easy. The work will be of real value to all interested in the more practical aspects of animal disease.
