The Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) Pocket Guide provides practitioners, veterinary students,
government personnel and cattle producers with an easy-to-use resource illustrating the progression of
FMD lesions in cattle. The photos in the Pocket Guide follow the development of lesions over 18 days and
can be used in vesicular disease surveillance programs. The photos were taken by personnel at the Plum Island Animal Disease Center following exposure to animals experimentally inoculated with FMD virus.
