Der Siegeszug der Schafe von „Glennkill“ hält weiter an Leblos liegt der Schäfer George Glenn im irischen Gras, ein Spaten ragt aus seiner Brust. Seine Schafe sind entsetzt: Wer kann den alten Schäfer umgebracht haben? Und warum? Miss Maple, das klügste Schaf der Herde, beginnt sich für den Fall zu interessieren. Glücklicherweise hat George seinen Schafen vorgelesen, und so trifft sie das kriminalistische Problem nicht ganz unvorbereitet. Unerbittlich folgen sie der Spur des Täters und kommen den Geheimnissen der Menschenwelt dabei nach und nach auf die Schliche – bis es ihnen schließlich gelingt, Licht ins Dunkel zu bringen und den rätselhaften Tod ihres Schäfers aufzuklären.

Erkrankungen durch Pilze beanspruchen in der täglichen Praxis ei nen breiten und ständig wachsenden Raum. Man hört und liest von einem unaufbaItsamen Vormarsch der Pilze und ihrer zunehmenden Gefährdung für den Menschen. Diese Behauptung gilt sicher nicht so allgemein für alle Erkrankungen durch Pilze. Jedoch müssen wir langsam lernen, die Gefahr, die von diesen Erregern ausgeht, richtig einzuschätzen. Wenn man heute von einer wachsenden Bedeutung der Pilzerkrankungen spricht, so sind in erster Linie Mykosen als Er krankungen durch parasitäre Pilze gemeint. Die Kenntnis der Mykosen ist für den praktisch tätigen Arzt ebenso wichtig wie die Kenntnis von Erkrankungen durch Bakterien oder Viren. Auf den ersten Blick erscheint dieses Gebiet der Mikrobiolo gie sicher außerordentlich verwirrend. Unser Anliegen ist es daher, den mykologisch Interessierten nicht durch eine Vielfalt unüber schaubarer Begriffe zu verunsichern und ihm die Unzulänglichkeit seines Tuns immer wieder zu beweisen, sondern es geht uns darum, Hilfen zu geben bei der Diagnostik, der Therapie und den prophy laktischen Maßnahmen in der Mykologie. Am Beginn der Mikrobiologie stand ohne Zweifel die Mykologie. Vor der Entdeckung der Bakterien wurden bereits 1836 von Remark in den Krusten des Favus verzweigte Fäden gesehen, die er zu die sem Zeitpunkt jedoch wohl nicht als Ursache für die Erkrankung an sah. 1839 erkannte dann Schönlein den Zusammenhang zwischen Pilzfäden und der Entstehung des Favus. Virchow führte schon den Begriff der Dermatomykosen in die Humanpathologie ein. Die My kologie erhielt jedoch ihre entscheidenden Impulse und Bedeutung durch die Arbeiten von Sabouraud.

Authoritative yet easy to read, Sheep and Goat Medicine, 2nd Edition covers all the latest advances in sheep and goat medicine, including medical treatment, surgery, theriogenology, and nutrition. Full-color photographs and clear instructions provide the answers you need, guiding you through common procedures and techniques such as restraint for examination, administration of drugs, blood collection, and grooming; these descriptions are often accompanied by explanatory diagrams and charts. With diseases, surgeries, and treatments organized by body system, information is always easy to find. New to this edition are chapters on parasite control, nutritional requirements, and performing a necropsy. Developed by Dr. D.G. Pugh, a world-renowned expert on the medical care of sheep and goats, this reference is unmatched for its comprehensive coverage of herd health, physical examination, anesthesia, and multisystem diseases. Clear writing style makes the book useful and easy to understand, even for sheep and/or goat owners who are not veterinarians. Both surgery and medicine are covered in each body systems chapter, so it's easier to choose between treatment options for specific disorders. Superbly illustrated surgical procedures clearly demonstrate the steps to follow in performing surgical procedures. An explanation of the differences in normal behavior between sheep and goats shows how they are not the same, and require different methods of treatment. A consistent, logical format in each body systems chapter makes information easy to find by beginning with physical examination and diagnostic procedures, followed by discussions of common diseases that involve the system. Consistent headings include pathogenesis, clinical signs, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. A comprehensive nutrition chapter covers diet evaluation, method of balancing rations, total parenteral nutrition, and examples of nutritious diets. Practical formulas are included for making sodium sulfite for testing passive transfer, and Sheather's solution for fecal flotation. Useful appendixes summarize essential information on drugs and drug dosages, fluid therapy, and normal values and conversions. A diverse, authoritative panel of contributors provides current information on the care of valuable breeding stock as well as pets. Full-color photographs and graphics accurately depict conditions and procedures. New Fluid Therapy and Nutritional Support chapter covers emergency and critical care essential to the care of sheep and goats. New Gastrointestinal Parasitism chapter covers treatments for parasites, key to the successful management of all flocks. New Necropsy chapter helps you prevent disease outbreaks in a flock by determining the cause of death.
