About this book

Since 1877, Captain M. Horace Hayes's "Veterinary Notes for Horse Owners" has been the standard work on equine health care, constantly up-dated to take account of greater knowledge of diseases and improved technological treatments. It now appears in its 18th edition, completely reviewed by leading authorities from around the world, with almost all of the chapters revised or completely re-written, and with new illustrations. Extra chapters have been included to cover the developing subjects of Performance Analysis and Artificial Insemination.

The result is a comprehensive manual of horse ailments, medicine and surgery, covering the symptoms and treatment of every disease or injury that the horse owner is likely to encounter, fully explained in a language that the owner can understand.

The text is divided into seven main sections, covering: the Organ Systems; the Musculo-skeletal System; the Reproductive System; Infectious Diseases; Medical and Surgery matters; Management and Husbandry; Miscellaneous other Topics, including exercise physiology, purchase of horses, veterinary nursing, colours and markings.

This latest edition of Hayes, like others before it, is a necessary reference book for the thinking horse owner.
