This third edition was a challenge and a goal that nearly overwhelmed the author by the enormous increase in published material. Fortunately his health and eyes have remained excellent due to his wife’s food, ministrations and understanding that have enabled him to spend the many hours of necessary reading, filing and writing.
The author has purposely not tried to simplify, eliminate controversial material, or omit any phase of the subject that concerns itself with veterinary obstetrics or genital diseases of domestic animals. This book was written for veterinary undergraduates and those practitioners who are still students. The layman was not considered, as to do so would make the text less satisfactory for its intended readers. The author has stressed diagnosis and physiology throughout the text because he feels these phases are of greatest concern for veterinarians.
An accurate diagnosis often requires an extensive knowledge of the field and of all the possible conditions that may be responsible for certain symptoms. As Bertillon, the famous French detective said, “One can only see what one observes, and one observes only things which are already in the mind.” Students might prefer a streamlining of information such as befits a core course. But each case in practice is different and a breadth of specific knowledge, skill and the art of its applications are essential.
