Overview for Diseases of Poultry
Poultry disease diagnosis is an art, involving critical investigation approaches, application of scientific knowledge and further confirmation of the disease. This book consists of all the practical aspects of the common poultry diseases seen in our country. In particular emphasis is made to create healthy flocks rather than to treat the birds. Much more importance is given to diagnose the diseases in the field based on pathagonomoni clesions.
