Diagnosing and treating skin diseases in goats: an update
  1. Murray Corke and
  2. John Matthews


Skin disease in goats is not uncommon, and many skin diseases have been reported in the UK goat population (Jackson 1986). However, the recent globalisation of trade in animals and animal products has resulted in incursions of novel diseases into Europe, some of which are potential threats to goat herds in the UK. This article focuses on diseases that occur commonly, those presenting particular diagnostic or therapeutic difficulties, and those that appear to be current threats to the UK goat herds.
