Description

The Sixth Edition of Adams and Stashak’s Lameness in Horses builds on the book’s reputation as the classic gold-standard reference on equine lameness.  Now in full color, the text has been fully revised and streamlined to improve user-friendliness, with a new, simplified format and a stronger emphasis on the diagnosis and management of lameness.  A valuable supplementary DVD provides a complete guide to diagnosing lameness, offering additional anatomical images; video clips demonstrating key procedures such as physical examination, flexion tests, perineural and intrasynovial anesthesia; and examples of lameness conditions in motion. 

The Sixth Edition presents new or significantly rewritten chapters on the axial skeleton, principles of musculoskeletal disease, principles of therapy for lameness, occupation-related lameness conditions, and lameness in the young horse.  The diagnostic procedures chapter has also been significantly expanded to reflect advances in this important area.  Adams and Stashak’s Lameness in Horses, Sixth Edition is an essential addition to any equine practitioner’s bookshelf.

Reviews

"This excellent text has developed well from the previous editions. It is, I suggest, without doubt still an essential addition to the bookcase of any practice that does a significant amount of equine work." (Veterinary Practice, 1 November 2011)

"The sixth edition of this classic will prove to be an excellent resource for equine practitioners, veterinary specialist trainees, and students . . . Dr. Baxter and his colleagues are to be congratulated on this outstanding book." (Doody's, 15 July 2011)

"The comprehensiveness of this work is little short of phenomenal. It is focused, extensively illustrated and would surely have no challengers to the title as the bible on equine lameness . . . Adams and Stashak have much to be proud of in this book, as does editor Baxter for his substantial input. " (Horsetalk , 23 June 2011)

"The comprehensiveness of this work is little short of phenomenal. It is focused, extensively illustrated and would surely have no challengers to the title as the bible on equine lameness." (Horsetalk, June 2011)

"This book remains a key text for equine clinicians, with particular strengths being the descriptive anatomy, summaries of diagnostic imaging techniques and the clarity of the diagnostic techniques presented, both in the text and on the DVD." (Equine Veterinary Education, May 2011)

"The latest version of this classic not only has updated content, but includes many colour photographs and illustrations as well as an accompanying DVD. The latter is an excellent 'how to...' guide to equine lameness investigation, with excellent sections on perineural and intrasynovial injection techniques, which, in my opinion, is worth half the purchase price all by itself... this book remains an asset to all those with an interest in equine lameness." (Veterinary Record, April 2011)
