From the Back Cover
Chock-full of information, the latest edition of the trusted classic is organized to allow you to find what you need—with confidence and ease.
A special Index of Signs and Symptoms is on the inside of the front cover for fast referral. Consult this if your horse exhibits any symptoms or unexplained behavior.
A detailed Contents list outlines the organs and body systems that are the sites of disease.
A General Index gives you a comprehensive guide to the book's medical information. Bolded page numbers help you identify more detailed coverage of the subject.
Cross-references note pertinent supplementary information.
A Glossary defines medical terms that are commonly used by veterinarians.
As a bonus, go online to find additional references on: sample reference values for laboratory tests, and guides to antibiotics, antifungals, antiprotozoals, and common drugs your veterinarian might prescribe.

Each chapter then starts with a complete explaination of that system and follows with an alphabetic listing of the problems or diseases.
There are plenty of clear photos and diagrams and there are two further indexes to help you to find what you are looking for or to cross-reference information. I would certainly recommend this as the book to get, especially if you can only afford to get one health reference book.
This is required reading for every horse owner. It helps determine whether or not you need to call the vet out for a medical problem.
