Almost Perfect June 26 2012

Format: Plastic Comb Verified Purchase
If you have livestock that graze or you are feeding hay you did not personally cut, this book/manual is essential. Unfortunately, "A Field Guide to Common Animal Poisons" is completely free of any taxonomic keys for the plants and fungi it lists as poisonous, or any imagery of any, REPEAT ANY, of the items of any of the classes of toxins contained within its' covers. This is in direct conflict with the title that infers field guidance. That said, it is a thorough listing of toxins that can affect your animals and the sources, toxicity, basic signs and symptomology of poisoning, and treatment (the last of which is most likely best left to your vet to deal with).
