It takes more than horse sense to maintain a healthy horse. A knowledge of veterinary medicine is essential, not only for when emergencies occur but to provide the animal with a safe and nurturing environment that will prevent as many problems as possible.

Acclaimed when first published in 1977 and now available for the first time in paperback, Horseman's Veterinary Encyclopedia offers a comprehensive approach to equine health, discussing diseases, unsoundnesses and other problems according to the parts of the horse's body: injuries and lameness; foot and hoof care; parasites; skin and coat care; colic and other sicknesses; dental care; and the respiratory, circulatory and reproductive systems.

As a practical handbook for the owner and as a guide to working with the veterinarian and farrier, Horseman's Veterinary Encyclopedia is an indispensable tool for every home, barn, and ranch.

The highly acclaimed reference on equine medical treatment and preventive care.
