Book Description

This book deals exclusively with the equine dermatological problems that the clinician is most likely to see in the practice, ideal for the practitioner who must quickly diagnose and treat the problems. The highly illustrated format helps guide the practitioner towards an effective diagnosis and treatment plan. Coverage progresses from a detailed description of all diagnostic tests and procedures, to clinical evaluation of the patient and test results, to presentation of the treatment options that are realistic for the condition involved. The drug information is selective and designed to answer the questions the practitioner is most likely to have. Treatment protocols for bacterial infections, pruritus, fungal infections and ectoparasitcal infections are discussed in detail. Over 80 color images along with tables and flow charts provide quick access to important diagnostic and treatment information.
