This book is a systematic and concise guide to equine pediatric medicine covering etiology, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, diagnosis, and management. The book is superbly illustrated throughout with photographs, line diagrams and radiographs. This book is of particular value to equine practitioners as a ready reference, and to veterinary students and technicians as a complete guide to equine pediatric disease.


…there is a real space in the market for a good equine paediatric textbook, and this is exactly what this is. There is a really good chapter on pharmacology for equine paediatric patients, an area of huge divergence from adult patients, with easy-to-read tables of commonly used medications…inviting layout and more than 400 colour photographs to support the text. Most of them are excellent quality and cover both common conditions and the more unusual ones…The level of information is useful for all, and the students and new graduates I showed this book to felt that it was exactly the sort of book they’d like as a reference point in their car when they drove to see their first sick foal…up to date on areas of medicine that are changing fast…a really useful book – easy to read, and giving up-todate, useful information in an easy-to-find fashion.

—Emma Shipman, Veterinary Record, March 2012

…the text summarises key points…supported by a comprehensive range of drawings, tables, charts, colour photographs, radiographs, ultrasound scans and images…a really useful addition to the limited range of texts available within this subject area, and its design and layout enables it to be an effective initial reference to students and general clinicians…

—Kirsty Lesniak, Equine Health, May 2012

…a beautiful book…a must for the equine practice library…extremely useful for the mixed practitioner…well laid out…clearly set out tables…pictures and tables are really excellent…I would certainly advise all equine practitioners, whoever has to treat foals, to buy this book…An hour reading this book would be just as useful as an hour in a lecture theatre. With days of CPD costing between £250 and £300, this book must be excellent value for money

—Graham Duncanson, Veterinary Practice, September 2012

…text is supported by many colour photographs in addition to endoscopic, ultrasonographic and radiographic images,which are generally of good quality. There are also frequent tables, which are easy to read and allow for the concise delivery of important information…provides a comprehensive description of disorders afflicting foals…well written and easy to read…recommendations on management of disorders are generally current, sound and practical…The chapters on shock, resuscitation, fluid and electrolyte therapy and pharmacology are not provided in other comparable foal medicine texts…an excellent resource for veterinary students, mixed practitioners and general equine practitioners…Information is easy to access and digest…handy enough that it could be used as a ready reference in the car or on the practice shelf for looking up details on a challenging foal case.

—Laura Nath, Australian Veterinary Journal, June 2012
