Product Description


 “The content of the book is outstanding and quite current.  The overall theme of the book as well as the listing of several new pathogens provides tremendous information on potential emerging disease situations.  The flow of the book is outstanding, starting with the informative chapter on herd evaluation.  I highly recommend this book as an outstanding reference to anyone associated with modern swine production, especially practitioners.”  (Journal of The American Veterinary Medical Association, 16 September 2012)

“This book has been extensively rewritten with many new contributors adding to the wealth of global knowledge . . . The book is rather US-biased in its authorship but , despite this , the 10th edition is an essential addition to the library of any veterinary surgeon , adviser to the pig industry or serious farmer who deals with pigs.”  (Veterinary Record, 17 November 2012)

“This is the primary reference on swine disease management for veterinarians and students. As the only complete, current reference, it is a must-have for people working in this area.”  (Doody’s, 14 September 2012)

This is an excellent go-to book for anyone dealing with health and disease in swine. The book provides extensive coverage of foreign and domestic diseases of swine; from there you can target a more intensive search into the scientific literature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional and Complete Nov. 17 2013
By Valerie Weihman-Rock - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a complete and exceptional resource for large or small piggie operations. Well worth the money for the information provided.

Farmers new to raising pigs or only having a couple to raise may wish a more basic text as starters. Small bits of the information found in other texts will be found here but in extensive depth. I am a "pig herdsman" of six years, starting with 8 pigs, getting up to 150 and now choosing to have around 60. I relied on 4 different books up until finding this book. This book will help you (and your veterinarian) in preventing, diagnosing and treating ailments in your 2-piggie or larger herd.

Shorter than previous version, lacking some basic information. Summarized too much and not much new data added - references old
