Manual of Equine Lameness (EHEP002246) cover image
Manual of Equine Lameness provides essential information on equine lameness diagnostics and treatment in an easy-to-use format ideal for the clinical setting. A clinically relevant distillation of topics from Adams and Stashak's Lameness in Horses, this text offers a quick introduction and fast access to key information. An accompanying DVD includes practical supplements, including additional anatomical images, video clips demonstrating key procedures such as perineural and intrasynovial injections, and examples of lameness conditions in motion. 

Designed for use in daily practice, the book is presented in brief chapters carefully formatted to maximize the usefulness for practicing veterinarians. Manual of Equine Lameness is an invaluable resource to any veterinarian treating lameness in horses and an ideal reference for veterinary students wanting to learn the fundamentals of lameness.

 “This manual is a quick reference on equine lameness.  This manual is best suited for general large animal or mixed animal practitioners, although equine practitioners might find it useful as a quick reference in the field.  It should be mentioned that this manual may also be of interest to veterinary students as a less expensive alternative to other books that deal with equine lameness in more detail.”  (Journal of The American Veterinary Medical Association, 16 September 2012)
