This concise, practical text covers the essential information veterinary students and nurses, new graduates, and practitioners need to succeed in equine medicine, focussing on respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases. 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 illustrations (over 300 full-colour, high-quality photographs).
Part of a five-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 clinically based approach. It details relevant clinical anatomy, physical clinical examination techniques and findings, normal parameters, aetiology/pathophysiology, differential diagnoses, diagnostic techniques, management and treatment, and prognosis. The emphasis is on information tailored to general equine clinicians with just enough on advanced techniques to make the practitioner aware of what is available elsewhere.
- The respiratory system is split into sections on surgical and medical conditions of the upper and lower respiratory tracts.
- The gastrointestinal system is divided into the upper tract, including the oral cavity and dentistry, and the lower tract and peritoneal cavity.
Ideal for veterinary students and nurses on clinical placements with horses as well as practitioners needing a quick reference ?on the ground?.
"Veterinary students will love this! I have seen the success of similar books in small animal medicine and how useful they can be on rotations when a quick reference is needed. I think it would equally be of benefit to residents and practitioners needing quick refreshers."
Carla Lusi, University of Melbourne, Australia, author of Fascial Anatomy of the Equine Forelimb (CRC Press)
"I think this Equine textbook will be exceptionally well received. Although the original book Equine Clinical Medicine, Surgery and Reproduction really helped me personally through university, I could only ever use it at my desk or at the library. More concise books allow students and new grads to have them at hand all the time, especially during rotations for quick reference. Leave the 1500 page book at home and take just what they need for the day! Each disease or syndrome has the same layout, allowing a vey quick reference, and the images are amazing. They are good quality and allow very immersive learning."
Sophie Neasham, Veterinary surgeon, UK
"While the volume Equine Clinical Medicine, Surgery and Reproduction, Second Edition is a great resource for reference, say, when wanting to research differential diagnoses for a case or brush up on a disease, it is not practical to be used out in the field. This smaller, more focused reference guide is more amenable to practical day-to-day veterinary use. For example, when out on a call and you need a quick reference on how to treat a specific presentation, having a resource which is concise and targeted is more user friendly than a large volume."
Rachael Harmer, Veterinary Medicine student at the University of Surrey (2016-2021), UK
