Widely acknowledged as the best guide to veterinary care available to the horse owner today, this comprehensive manual is now fully revised to include up-to-the-minute advice on the latest defence against new threats to the horse?s health. Every horse owner has experienced that feeling of helplessness when something is wrong with his or her animal. Correct diagnosis of any equine disease is a complicated business, but this excellent reference book provides a comprehensive and instant guide to equine health, and shows clearly when expert help is required. It offers two cross-referenced routes for the reader to find the necessary information: via an index of known equine diseases throughout the world, covering the symptoms, causes, diagnosis and treatment of each, or via an alphabetical encyclopaedia of specific diseases. Specially taken colour and black-and-white photographs aid in the identification of specific conditions.
