This atlas is aimed at bovine medicine practitioners to provide them with an easy to use visual reference of the main pathologies and disorders present in this species. A wide range of the most common diseases and disorders of cattle are illustrated, grouped by organic system and anatomic location, along with a brief description of the aetiology and pathology of each. The atlas includes the main disorders of cattle including congenital malformations, skin disorders, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular and respiratory conditions and diseases affecting the locomotor system, the nervous system including the sensory organs and the reproductive apparatus of males and females including the mammary gland.

Keith Cutler

Keith Cutler was brought up in the suburbs of London in south-east England and although he had family connections with dairy farming, he was initially determined to work with dogs and cats. Something changed while he was at University and he qualified from veterinary school in Bristol, having gained a first class honours degree in anatomical sciences (majoring on reproductive physiology) along the way, in the summer of 1990. His first job was in the farm animal department of the Endell Veterinary Group in Salisbury, in the central south of England, where he remains to this day. The farm animal team has expanded from four to fourteen veterinary surgeons during this time and his role has changed enormously but his clients and their animals remain as rewarding as ever. In addition to his clinical work, which involves all aspects of herd health planning and routine and emergency bovine medicine and surgery, he has, since he qualified, studied for and been awarded Diplomat status of the European College of Bovine Health Management, published many papers in various veterinary and agricultural journals and spoken at veterinary and agricultural meetings both at the United Kingdom and abroad. He has also acted as external examiner for the RCVS Certificate in Cattle Health and Production and chair of the technical committee of CHeCS (Cattle Health Certification Standards). He has provided input to various government and industry cattle health initiatives, including BVDFree and Action Johne’s. He is a past-president of the BCVA (British Cattle Veterinary Association) and in 2006 he was awarded the honour of being voted Farmers Weekly Livestock Advisor of the Year. Life has been busy, but his first love (at work!) remains his clients and their animals!
