Involvement with equine reproduction is very common for the veterinarian in practice, and there is enormous demand for continuing education, particularly in the light of recent changes in science and practice, such as the routine use of ultrasound, improved standards of foal care, and the importance of artificial insemination.

The 22 contributing authors, an international blend of specialist equine practitioners and university clinicians, provide by means of superbly illustrated questions and full explanatory answers, a comprehensive, up-to-date, enjoyable and easily read source of information on equine reproduction. Over 30 cases concern the use of ultrasound in the management of the broodmare, some 50 cases cover foal care and common medical /surgical conditions, and there are over 30 cases on the stallion and artificial insemination, plus rarer conditions such as dystocia and foaling trauma.

The random order of the cases and the self-assessment format, enable readers to think fully about a problem and devise a solution, just as they would in their daily work. The book will appeal equally to veterinarians in training, in practice and in preparation for higher qualifications.
