Equine Sports Medicine and Surgery

Equine Sports Medicine and Surgery

Equine Sports Medicine and Surgery provides the most up-to-date, in-depth coverage of the basic and clinical sciences required for management of the equine athlete. The unique treatment of exercise physiology and training within a clinical context, together with detailed review of all diseases affecting athletic horses, makes this the most comprehensive text available.

The book will provide a thorough grounding in the basic physiology of each body system, and in particular the responses of each body system to exercise and training, that will be separate, but highly relevant to, the succeeding sections on clinical disorders of each body system.

The highly respected editors have brought together an internationally renowned team of 50 contributors, producing the ultimate reference for veterinarians, students, horse-owners, and all those involved in the world of equine athletics.


"This comprehensive and integrated information source will appeal to practitioners, veterinary students, post-graduate students in equine exercise physiology and horsemen and women involved with the equine athlete. Post-graduate clinical students will find the summatuion valuable as well as the comprehensive refernce lists at the end of each chapter.

The text is presented in a clear, systematic, easily readable way. Extensive use is made of tables and illustrations." Dr Roy Gottschalk, The Veterinary Review, November 2004
