Bovine Respiratory Disease (BRD) is probably the most common and costly disease affecting the beef cattle industry worldwide, causing damages and losses in recently weaned and feedlot cattle, nursing beef calves, housed dairy calves, and lactating dairy cows. In addition, BRD is a complex multi-factorial disease entailing the interaction between various factors, such a host factors (age, immune status, etc.), environmental factors (transport, temperature fluctuations, ventilation, etc.) and infectious agents (viruses, bacteria, etc.). This handbook, including the most essential contents, has been carried out by a renowned expert with a wide experience in this field. Thus, this updated book (visual-type) is the most helpful tool to properly control this disease. The atlas format makes the contents understandable and accessible to readers.

Keith D. DeDonder

Dr. DeDonder graduated from Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine and spent several years in private practice before returning to pursue a PhD and complete a residency in clinical pharmacology at Kansas State University. The focus of this research was on antimicrobial resistance in bovine respiratory disease (BRD) and the effects of clinical BRD on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of an antibiotic and its correlation to treatment outcome. Dr. DeDonder is now director of clinical services at the Veterinary and Biomedical Research Center in the United States providing quality research to the veterinary and biomedical community.
