Diagnosis and Management of Lameness in the Horse

This book provides a comprehensive approach to lameness diagnosis, and focuses on the importance of clinical examinations and diagnostic analgesia. It allows for accurate diagnosis of equine lameness to be made more quickly and effectively by differentiating between different horses and their activities.

Detailed descriptions of diagnosis include the common problem of what to do when a diagnosis cannot be met. Musculoskeletal dysfunction is discussed as a cause of poor performance and the management of a broad range of conditions causing gait abnormalities are included.
