Written specifically to be of practical help to vets in general practice and also to students. Covering the whole field of equine disease, diagnosis and management in a practical semi-note form, the book gives the basic information that a busy practitioner actually needs, allowing rapid reference and easy understanding, taking the reader concisely through the diagnostic process up to treatment and prognosis. There are chapters on each major system, each starting with a general view of history taking, clinical examination, diagnosis and aetiology of problems of that organ system. Specific diseases are then discussed; most following a standard pattern of clinical signs, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, treatment, prognosis and prevention
