This is a fabulous book; I'd highly recommend it. Although it is a British publication (and covers a few issues unique to the UK), it is very informative, and clear. It has excellent explanations for many health issues, disease, etc. Has good graphics and photos also. It is the only in-depth "professional" sheep vet book I have at this time, and I have learned a tremendous amount from it. Definitely worth the money.
