Veterinary Clinics of North America: Food Animal Practice
Mastitis in Dairy Cows

On a daily basis, veterinarians work with dairy producers to implement preventive health care programs that will ensure the well-being of cows, minimize the use of antimicrobials, and result in the production of safe, high-quality dairy products. Meeting these objectives cannot be achieved without sufficient attention directed toward mastitis control. Virtually all dairy farms have cows that develop mastitis and, on most farms, this disease is the most prevalent and costly disease of adult dairy cows.

Current, important information on mastitis for all food animal practitioners can be found in this book, edited by our very own Dr. Pamela Ruegg! Topics include new perspectives in mastitis control, treatment of clinical mastitis, antimicrobial resistance in mastitis pathogens, the role of diagnostic microbiology in mastitis control programs, update on control of Staph aureus and Strep ag, epidemiology and control of mycoplasma mastitis, managing environmental mastitis, mastitis vaccine strategies, using mastitis records and somatic cell count data, the role of the milking machine in mastitis control, stray voltage and milk quality, communicating and implementing udder health programs, and more!
