Book Description

31 Oct 2008
In depth diagnosis and treatment of the most common problem affecting horses' health. Written by a veterinary expert with current hands-on experience and the latest research in care and rehabilitation This book is a thorough examination of all causes of lameness, the most common and frustrating problem faced by horse owners. Lameness is the primary cause for a horse to be out of action and unrideable. Its cause can be difficult to diagnose and the problem can drag on for weeks, months or even years if the treatment is wrong. All horses are occasionally lame from the regularly ridden and competed horse to the pony left in the field and only ridden at weekends. Its causes are diverse and many ranging from a simple briused sole to difficult to treat tendon injuries and potentially fatal laminitis. All horse owners need to be able to assess lameness, even a small wound can result in the death of a horse if it leads to an infected joint. On the other hand, horse owners can hardly afford to call out the vet everytime their horse stumbles and tweaks a muscle when out in the field.This book gives readers the skills they need to understand the causes of lamness and make well informed decisions on how to address the problem

5.0 out of 5 stars In depth but easy to understand 11 Jan 2010
By Clare
Format:Paperback
I have looked at lots of books and online about lameness recently and have found that most information is either aimed at veterinary students or too general and simplistic. This book goes into detail about different types of lameness while making it easy to understand to the average horse owner (lots of pictures!). Another great part of this book is that it starts with a guide to correct confirmation in relation to lameness and how to help prevent lameness in the first place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great handbook of horse lameness 5 May 2010
Format:Paperback
This book is primarily intended for horse owners but I found it very helpful to understand the practical diagnosis and treatment of equine lameness.
There are numerous colour pictures and diagrams that facilitate understanding of one of the most important area in equine medicine.
