This compact but encyclopedic dictionary has offered practical help to farmers and owners of stables since the first edition in 1928 and, increasingly over the years, to the owners of an ever wider variety of pets.

With the 18th edition, the range of animals and topics widens further to embrace more detailed legislation, equine motor neuron disease, predetermining the sex of calves and tarantulas.

Generations of veterinary practitioners, students, farmers and pet owners have relied on Black’s Veterinary Dictionary as a primary reference on animal health and husbandry matters. The 21st edition has been comprehensively updated; it covers the widest spectrum of veterinary data available in a single volume. The core of information on animal health, husbandry and welfare topics, and signs of diseases and their treatment, is supplemented by many new and amended entries. These reflect the numerous developments that have taken place since the 20th edition was published; they range from advances in medication to descriptions of newly identified conditions; from the resurgence of old scourges such as TB in cattle to the emerging risk of exotic diseases being imported following the relaxation of travel arrangements for dogs and cats. A major innovation is the inclusion of entries describing the popular breeds of dog and cat, and the inheritable conditions to which they might be susceptible. Some changes will be noticed in the spelling of certain medicines, which have been amended to conform with the recommended international non-proprietary names for medicinal substances, in accordance with EEC Directive 92/97. Dr A.H. Andrews BVetMed, PhD, MRCVS has again acted as assistant editor. Dr Andrews, D. McK. Fraser BVM&S, CertWel. MRCVS and A.D. Malley FRCVS, MVB, BA have all made extensive suggestions and contributions. I am grateful for their input. E.B. 2005 Note: The use of small capitals, for instance, ANTIBODY, in the text, refers the reader to the entry of that name for additional information. Black’s Veterinary Dictionary, first published in 1928, owes its existence to the late Professor William C. Miller, who was also responsible for the 1935 edition. When on the teaching staff of the Royal (Dick) Veterinary College, Edinburgh, he saw the need for such a book and modelled it on Black’s Medical Dictionary. Professor Miller held the chair of animal husbandry at the Royal Veterinary College, London, and completed a distinguished career by becoming Director of the Animal Health Trust’s equine research station at Newmarket. Editorship from the 1953 to 1995 editions was in the hands of Geoffrey P. West MRCVS, veterinary writer and journalist.
