First Aid for My Horse Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First aid should be part of every rider's basic knowledge.

Equine veterinarian Anke Rüsbüldt provides handy tips on what to do in an emergency, and how you can make the best use of the time while waiting for the vet.

First Aid For My Horse describes how to assess situations correctly and how to react carefully and skillfully to each one. Rüsbüldt provides step-by-step, illustrated instructions on:

· Avoiding emergencies

· Assessing the patient

· Bandaging

· Treating wounds

· Handling fractures

· Managing digestive problems

In addition, there are special sections on specific first-aid treatments for azoturia (tying up), laminitis, tetanus, shock, heatstroke, urticaria (hives), foaling, burns, trailer accidents, and casting. A final chapter deals with making the hardest choice of all - when it is time to euthanize a horse.

First Aid For My Horse is an excellent primer and resource for learning how to prevent emergency situations, and what to do when one arises.


A concise and practical guide to handling all the basic first-aid needs of your horse
