1. African Hedgehogs: African Hedgehogs can live up to 8 years. 2. Biology of the Immune System: Immune cells signal each other by means of small proteins called cytokines. Several hundred different types have been identified. 3. Cloning of Domestic Animals: The most common tissue used for cloning from adult animals is subcutaneous connective tissue. 4. Complementary and Alternative Veterinary Medicine: Because of the lack of manufacturing standards, quality control, and known effects in animals, herbal medicines probably present a greater risk of adverse effects and interactions than other types of complementary and alternative therapies. 5. Disorders of Potassium Metabolism: Potassium homeostasis in ruminants is determined by the balance between absorption in the GI tract and excretion in saliva. 6. Equine Metabolic Syndrome: Hyperinsulinemia with normal blood glucose concentrations (insulin resistance) is the primary clinical finding in equine metabolic syndrome. 7. Poisonous Mushrooms: The period between ingestion and appearance of clinical signs often indicates the prognosis in cases of mushroom poisoning. If the latency is less than 3 hours, the signs are typically self-limiting and not life-threatening. 8. Porcine Circovirus Diseases: Porcine multisystemic wasting syndrome has been reported worldwide and has also been identified in wild boar. 9. Pseudopregnancy in Goats: The fertility of does treated for pseudopregnancy appears to be normal, so culling affected goats is generally not indicated. 10. Seminal Vesiculitis in Bulls: Vesiculitis in bulls is most often caused by bacteria and is most commonly identified in yearling bulls.

Son was in college for Swine Science and has a small hog farm at home. I thought originally he needed the book for a class but learned no he wanted it to utilize while working in the swine barns at school as well as to have on the shelf at home.
The book is great. If you own animals; livestock pets doesn't matter you should get this.
