    These five concise, practical texts cover the essential information veterinary students, new graduates and practitioners need to succeed in equine practice, each focussing on a different body system. Written for an international readership, the books convey the core information in an easily digestible, precise form with extensive use of bullet-points, lists, diagrams, protocols and extensive illustration (over 1500 full colour, high quality photographs in total). The series extracts and updates key information from Munroe’s Equine Surgery, Reproduction and Medicine, Second Edition, distilling 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 on clinical placements with horses as well as for practitioners needing a quick reference ‘on the ground’, the spiralbound format allows the books to lie open during practice.
