Fully revised and updated to reflect the latest veterinary practices and research, the third edition of the Horse Owner's Home Veterinary Handbook offers horse owners all of the information they need to keep their horse healthy for life. Working in partnership with their veterinarian, this volume helps readers identify potential problems, react to emergency situations, better understand options and diagnoses, and maintain good husbandry practices to keep their horse healthy. Chock full of valuable information, The Horse Owner's Home Veterinary Handbook is organized to allow readers to quickly find what they need. A special Index of Signs and Symptoms is on the inside of the front cover for fast referral. Consult this if your horse exhibits any symptoms or unexplained behavior. A detailed Contents outlines the organs and body systems that are the sites of disease. The General Index gives you a comprehensive guide to the book's medical information. Bolded page numbers help readers identify more detailed coverage of the subject. Cross-references note pertinent supplementary information. A Glossary defines medical terms used preferentially to best explain the subject or condition. Many of these words are now being used commonly among veterinarians and their clients.
