'This is a book written specifically for the sheep owner in non-technical language. It deals with the important diseases as well as the less known diseases of sheep. It deals also with the important parasites - internal and external - affecting sheep, the nutritional deficiencies affecting them and the common plant and chemical poisons. The subject matter is dealt with in alphabetical order for quick and easy reference. A comprehensive index at the back of the book enables diseases to be traced which are known by names other than those under which they appear in the main index. Each disease is dealt with under distinct sub-headings of occurrence, cause, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and prevention. There is no wading through superfluous reading to get the facts. The book will appeal to the reader who wants authoritative and dependable information clearly and concisely summarized.'
