Description

Equine Fluid Therapy is the first reference to draw equine-specific fluid therapy information together into a single, comprehensive resource. Offering current information unique to horses on the research and practice of fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base disorders, the book is designed to be clinically oriented yet thorough, providing detailed strategies tailored to equine practice. With information ranging from physiology and acid-base balance to fluid therapy for specific conditions, Equine Fluid Therapy covers fluid treatments in both adult horses and foals, highlighting the unique physiologic features, conditions, and differences in foals.

Well-illustrated throughout, the book begins with an overview of the physiology of fluids, electrolytes, and acid-base, then moves into practical information including equipment, monitoring techniques, fluid choices, and potential complications. A final section offers chapters on blood transfusions, colloids, parenteral nutrition, and hemodynamic monitoring. Equine Fluid Therapy is an essential reference for equine practitioners, specialists, and researchers.

“Equine Fluid Therapy is a comprehensive textbook created to benefit veterinarians (from interns and residents to practitioners who work in ambulatory or referral practice) who treat critically ill equine patients in a variety of practice settings.”  (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 September 2015)

"One of the challenges of any clinically-based textbook is to provide information that is current, accessible and relevant to a broad target readership. Equine Fluid Therapy achieves this challenge and will benefit veterinary students, general practitioners and veterinary specialists. It will be of particular value in equine hospitals where intensive management of patients is undertaken and fluid therapy is undoubtedly used. This excellent reference text supports evidence-based approaches to fluid therapy in horses and will be a valuable addition to any equine practice’s library." (Australian Veterinary Journal, 95:12, 2017)
