You can provide the day-to-day medical care required to keep your cattle healthy and thriving. Heather Smith Thomas, a rancher with decades of hands-on experience, addresses every medical situation likely to arise on a cattle ranch or dairy farm. In lively language that offers practical, easy-to-execute solutions, Thomas discusses preventive care and how to handle sick or stressed cattle. Her thorough coverage of diseases and disorders includes advice on how to treat:

• Bacterial, viral, and protozoal diseases

• Weather-related health problems

• Internal and external parasites

• Problems affecting every body system

• Nutritional deficiencies

• Poisonous health hazards

• Accidents and injuries

• And much more

Whether you are caring for a single dairy cow or a large beef herd, you can substantially reduce veterinary costs, increase the self-sufficiency of your operation, and improve the health of your animals.


Heather Smith Thomas has been raising cattle since she was 12 years old, and she and her husband have raised a herd of cattle that they have cross-bred to meet the needs of their rugged and hilly ranch in Salmon, Idaho. Thomas has written many books, including Storey’s Guide to Raising Beef Cattle, The Cattle Health Handbook, Getting Started with Beef & Dairy Cattle, Essential Guide to Calving, Your Calf, The Horse Conformation Handbook, Stable Smarts, Storey’s Guide to Raising Horses, and Storey’s Guide to Training Horses.
