‘The greatest medieval work in veterinary medicine is the comprehensive manual ‘ Kamil Al-Sina’atayn Fi Al-Baytarah Wl Zardaqah', by Abu Bakr Al-Baytar of Cairo (died 1340), who was the groom of King An-Nasir Muhammad. The book covers animal husbandry, breeding, variations in wild and domestic animals, horsemanship, and knighthood, and contains a section on birds, especially those domesticated in Egypt and Syria.
