I found this book extremely user-friendly. You don�t need to know what�s wrong to look it up!
Section one is concerned with forms of preventive medicine, followed by a detailed analysis of the myriad ills which afflict equus. There follows a section on therapies including those of an �alternative� nature. Finally we learn about the practicalities of insurance, second opinions, prohibited substances and travel stress.
733 pages, 25 chapters of FACTS. It�s not a cheap buy, but a must for bookshelf and stable.
