Endorsed by the British Equine Veterinary Association, this book aims to cover the syllabus for the new RCVS equine veterinary nursing certificate. It covers subjects such as medical and surgical equine nursing, basic equine management and the theory underpinning these topics. It also includes chapters on nutrition, imaging and anatomy and physiology not previously well covered for the equine at a level appropriate for nurses. The approach is practical and the book is laid out in a user-friendly manner with copious illustrations.
