Goats are fairly adaptable creatures in the wild but, if kept as pets, or commercially farmed, they rely on their owners not only for food, but also for protection from diseases, injury and predators. As the title of the book suggests, goat health and welfare are closely linked and it is a truism that 'a fit and healthy goat is a happy and productive goat'.
