Technical Guidelines for the Responsible and Prudent Use of Antimicrobials in Veterinary Medicine in South Africa (2002)

Antimicrobials are highly effective tools used to control and treat infectious or contagious diseases caused by microorganisms in humans and animals. Their use in veterinary practice helps to ensure the health and well being of livestock and companion animals. However, the use in animals can lead to selection of resistant forms of bacteria, which may compromise human health if resistant bacteria are then transferred to humans via the food chain or environment. The continued use of antimicrobials in veterinary practice therefore depends upon the profession"s ability to use these products judiciously and find a balance between maximising animal production and conserving antimicrobial efficacy. This publication outlines the general guidelines for the prudent use of antimicrobials in veterinary medicine and presents important information needed for the rational selection of antimicrobials for use in animals.

Plant Poisonings and Mycotoxicoses of Livestock in Southern Africa (1988)

The wealth of information on plant poisonings and mycotoxicoses of livestock accumulated over the past 50 years has been collated here in a detailed reference work for veterinary students, practitioners and research workers. The authors, in fact, have been responsible for much of the research done on plant and mycotoxin poisonings in South Africa in the last two decades. They are therefore very well qualified for the herculanean task they have executed so well.
