This was one of those books that I had a quick flick through at first and thought it was rather light in content. On second reading there was indeed a mention of 'every illness' and the front section had excellent diagrams on physiology and anatomy - including the nervous system which is often not included in anatomy diagrams.

The book itself is in several sections, which makes it a little repetitive. The main portion of the book is dedicated to categorising various illnesses into 'effects' i.e. "Digestive system" or "Legs \ Lameness" etc There are tables of illnesses and injuries that can affect these areas and plenty of photos (this isn't a book for the kiddies or the weak of stomach).

Next is a section which goes through things alphabetically and finally there is a section which I didn't think really fitted into this type of guide, which had various protocols and processes which may be useful for studs or barn owners when dealing with various illnesses.

Because of the repetition - by area and then alpha - I didn't think that the topics received as much indepth coverage as perhaps I had wanted - the information on treatments, drug protocols etc was rather light IMHO. Although this cross-referencing system is designed to help you to work out what is wrong with your horse, I'd much rather that it was assumed that any serious illnesses would be diagnosed by your vet and that this would then be a reference for dealing with illness and injury at home and for helping owners to talk intelligently with their vet about available treatments.

Overall a handy book to have and certainly one that I will use for reference from time to time but I don't know that it warrants the subtitle "A comprehensive guide to Horse Health"

Working as a riding Instructor and manager or a riding school this is a great book to have as a quick and easy referance.

It does not go into any great detail but explains most things that may happen to a horse.

It has lots of photos and this is great when you are trying to explain to students what each illness ect. is and what it looks like.

Overall a good book for any horse riders collection

Very handy book to have around the ranch! Written in plain language (not all DVM-talk) with good pictures and drawings. If you own horses and don't have an equine vet close by, you will eventually have to treat your own horses. This is a great easy to use reference to keep on the bookshelf.
