The Veterinary Care of the Horse : 3rd Edition Hardback

Description

This enlarged third edition of The Veterinary Care of the Horse brings the reader up-to-date with recent developments in equine medicine and surgery. For ease of reference, each condition is explained under headings which include the causes, clinical signs, diagnosis, treatment, prevention and prognosis. It is appreciated that it is not always easy to remember every detail of the vet's instructions when coping with a sick or injured horse. For this reason, recommendations regarding everyday procedures such as cleaning a wound, poulticing and bandaging are laid out in a step-by-step format. Chapters include; The Healthy Horse; Preventive Medicine; the Ill or Injured Horse; Examination of the Lame or Poor Performance Horse; Diagnostic Procedures and Imaging Techniques; Conditions of the Horse's Foot; Tendon and Ligament Injuries; Joint Injury and Disease; Synovial Effusions; Conditions affecting Bone; Muscle Disease and Neurological Conditions; The Horse's Spine and Pelvis; Therapies; Complementary Therapies; Respiratory Conditions; The Horse's Heart and the Circulatory System; The Digestive System; The Horse's Skin; The Reproductive System; Endocrine Disorders; Eye Injury and Disease; Behaviour Problems; Veterinary Care of the Donkey; Veterinary Procedures and finally, Further Advice and Practical Tips.
