When it does, these delicate, injury-prone animals need swift treatment or a simple eating disorder might rapidly lead to death and a minor hoof injury to permanent lameness. This thorough medical reference featuring four-color anatomical drawings and covers all areas of equine health, diagnosis and treatment, equine behavior and safety, preventive health care, and first aid. Outlines individual body systems, anatomy and physiology, and abnormalities. Includes alternative therapies such as acupuncture and homeopathy, along with options for rehabilitation and physical therapy.
