Clinical Signs in Humans and Animals Associated with Minerals, Trace Elements and Rare Earth Elements is the first book to compile the clinical signs associated with deficiencies, toxicities, imbalances, exposures to minerals, trace elements and rare earth elements in animals. This book aims to increase awareness to improve diagnosis and to encourage further investigation based on comparative data. Written by an experienced veterinary clinician having worked in private practice, academia, pharmaceutical and pet food industries, this book includes data on companion animals, horses, rabbits, reptiles, ruminants, poultry, fish, and species typical in zoo populations.

In addition, the book touches upon human and other primate data. The subject material is divided into three sections to provide easy access to information on clinical signs, specific elements, or species. This is an ideal resource for veterinary researchers, clinicians and practitioners, specifically those working with animal nutrition and animal feed health. Academics and public health scientists will also benefit from this book’s information and data on rehabilitating and maintaining animal health.

Key Features

  • Includes data for a wide range of animal specimens, such as mammal and poultry species
  • Provides concise and accessible summary tables of clinical signs and the species in which they are seen
  • Offers relevant references and other useful information, such as management strategies


Veterinary and animal science researchers and clinicians, specifically those involved in animal nutrition and animal health work
