This volume is designed to give every horse owner the confidence to take an active role in helping their horse when the inevitable scrapes and strains, or more serious injuries occur. In clear, down-to-earth terms, chartered physiotherapist Amanda Stutton passes on her practical experience of diagnosing problems and her knowledge of the way that injuries affect the horse. The author starts by identifying the effects of injuries and the best methods of pain management before giving detailed advice on the treatment of the different injury types. Using thoroughly explained methods of diagnosis, horse owners can identify problems and take the appropriate steps to begin the healing process. The book has a number of case studies to explore the process of treating an injured horse, with specially commissioned photographs, to show in real terms how to achieve recovery to full health and soundness.
