Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Since 1989, when Horse Owner's Veterinary Handbook was first published, advances in equine research, medicine, and technology have had far-reaching effects on the health and longevity of horses.

In this new, fully updated and expanded edition, James M. Giffin, M.D. and Tom Gore, D.V.M. have incorporated the latest information on veterinary horse care and disease prevention in both words and pictures. Two new chapters, Pediatrics and Geriatrics, have been added in recognition of the importance of these specialty areas. Owners will welcome their straightforward, easy-to-understand approach to a host of topics of interest and concern.

Sudden illness or injury can be life-threatening. An Index of Signs and Symptoms on the inside front cover provides a rapid means to access information and make an informed decision whether to treat an emergency or seek veterinary assistance.

The well-cared-for horse at all stages of life, when given annual vaccinations, scheduled deworming, good dental and foot care, suffers fewer illnesses and infirmities, costs less to maintain, and will repay the small expenses many times over in the pride and pleasure of ownership. Horse Owner's Veterinary Handbook, Second Edition, gives all horsemen, including the 100,000 owners of the first edition, the means to achieve this goal.

From the Back Cover

If you want the most comprehensive information on the health care of horses, look no further. This classic reference has been revised and updated to reflect the changes in equine medicine and technology that have taken place since it was first published in 1989. In these pages you will find all the help you need when faced with an emergency. You will learn how to describe to your veterinarian a symptom or injury, and you will discover what you can do safely at home and when you should seek professional help. In this book you will find chapters on the following subjects:
  • Emergencies
  • Parasites
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Skin
  • Eye
  • Ears
  • Oral Cavity
  • Sex and Reproduction
  • Pregnancy and Foaling
  • Pediatrics
  • Feeding and Nutrition
  • Geriatrics
  • Drugs and Medications...
  • and for quick access, an Index of Signs and Symptoms on the inside front cover.
