Product description


Following the success of the first edition, this Second Edition has been extensively updated and augmented, to better reflect the requirements of its readers. The author has replaced a large number of the diagrams with labelled photographs and expanded the Anatomy section to allow a clearer and better understanding of the subject. The Diseases of poultry section has also been updated and now includes photographs of some of the conditions following a basic introductory explanation of the disease process and the body's response. The Parasites section has also been improved by the addition of photographs. Importantly, the author has added a guide to performing post mortem examinations on suspect birds. As with the First Edition, this book is designed to provide notes for students in poultry meat inspection and as a revision guide for other students for whom knowledge of poultry anatomy, diseases and other conditions is required, such as vets, environmental health officers and poultry scientists in general.

About the Author

Andy Grist joined the UK’s meat hygiene service after a colourful past in a variety of different professions. He didn’t just find himself a new job. Having identified the need for a single information resource that unite meat inspectors and vets in their common purpose, he set to work on compiling a series of illustrated books that would do just that. He is now lecturing at the University of West of England, Bristol, UK and has several more books in hand.
