Book Description

This concise, practical text covers the essential information veterinary students and nurses, new graduates and practitioners need to succeed in equine practice, focussing on reproduction and the foal. Written for an international readership, the book conveys the core information in an easily digestible, precise form with extensive use of bullet-points, lists, diagrams, protocols and extensive illustration (over XXX full colour, high quality photographs).

Part of a four-book series that extracts and updates key information from Munroe’s Equine Surgery, Reproduction and Medicine, Second Edition, the book distils best practice in a logical straightforward clinical-based approach. It details clinical anatomy, physical clinical examination techniques, diagnostic techniques and normal parameters, emphasising the things regularly available to general practitioners with minimal information of advanced techniques. The clinical information is split into anatomy-based sections.

Ideal for veterinary students and nurses on clinical placements with horses as well as practitioners needing a quick reference ‘on the ground’. The spiralbound format allows the book to lie open during practice.
