About this book

The latest expanded volume of the "gold standard" in equine medicine offers detailed guidance on the most up-to-date diagnostic methods, treatments, and preventive measures for both common and rare diseases of the horse. It features a systems approach, focusing on problems associated with each body system, with additional chapters on toxicology, nutrition, immunizations, and drug classes. New sections in this edition discuss clinical pharmacology and infectious diseases, and many new topics have been added to all sections, making it more comprehensive than ever. Internationally recognized editors and contributors present cutting edge information and authoritative perspectives.
