Equine Internal Medicine (2nd Ed)

Equine Internal Medicine (2nd Ed)

This is the only equine book on the market devoted solely to internal medicine. This problem-oriented book is organised into two primary sections. Part 1 is problem-based focusing on the mechanisms underlying disease and the principles underlying treatment. Part 2 is a body systems approach to common problems. Here individual diseases are discussed in terms of anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, clinical signs, diagnosis, and treatment. There are special and timely chapters on critical care, diseases of foals, and epidemiology.
