Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This single volume contains in-depth, authoritative information concerning all aspects of equine health and well-being. The UC Davis Book of Horses addresses everything from the selection of a horse to breeding management to emergency medical procedures in understandable - but not oversimplifiedstyle. An extensive glossary defines complicated medical terms clearly and concisely. The UC Davis Book of Horses does not replace a trained veterinarian, but it will help those involved with horses become better-informed caregivers. They will learn to recognize and identify potential problems and to work in conjunction with their veterinarian in providing the best prevention, care, and treatment for their horses. It takes more than horse sense to raise to healthy, productive animal. The UC Davis Book of Horses is a source of current information on nutritional requirements, with a review of diseases of dietary origin. It discusses reproduction in great depth with practical advice on breeding and genetics. It thoroughly outlines the equine anatomy and the multiple disorders that can affect horses. It also provides advice for taking care of an aging or ailing horse and details what to do in medical emergencies. Additionally, numerous illustrations, photographs, and detailed charts make this the definitive guide to horses.
