Certain multisystem diseases, of relevant interest, are treated independently within some chapters. Thus, the professional or student will be able to quickly relate the lesions and clinical signs detected in the farm with the photographs in the Atlas and the description of their clinical meaning, which will allow them to identify each lesion, contrast it with other similar ones and guide their diagnosis in a specific way. more precise way. The COVID pandemic has shown us the strong interdependence between animal health, human health and environmental health. Movements of sheep and goats from one region to another, globalization, climate emergencies and changes in human behavior provide many opportunities for diseases, including zoonoses, to spread. Dr. Herriot publishes this Atlas with the purpose of training veterinarians and veterinary students, as well as agronomists working with sheep and goats, in the diagnosis of diseases more quickly and effectively throughout the world.
