Long description:


The Racehorse: A Veterinary Manual has become the definitive text for primary care of the Thoroughbred racehorse. Written by one of the world?s leading racehorse veterinary clinicians, it sets out best practice standards of diagnosis and management of all the major conditions likely to be encountered in racehorse clinical practice, as well as comprehensively reviewing subjects as diverse as pre-purchase assessment and exercise physiology. This second edition has been thoroughly updated and introduces new chapters on a range of topics including injury risk assessment and electrolyte and fluid therapy, expanded sections on nutrition, rehabilitation and sales radiography as well as an array of new images and ready reference charts.


The Racehorse: A Veterinary Manual remains an invaluable resource for both clinicians and non-veterinarians in the racing industry.



 "The Racehorse: A Veterinary Manual is a must-have book for anyone involved with a racehorse. I would encourage all new graduates as well as veteran practitioners to read this book cover to cover. After nearly two decades as a racetrack veterinarian, I continue to reference it frequently. The additions in this second edition elevate an already outstanding resource."??
