Health Care & Common Problems of Horses - John Kohnke & Ruth Davis


A comprehensive guide for owners and trainers

$25.95 $8.95

One of the major findings in a recent wide scale survey of horse owners, breeders and trainers was the lack of up-to-date information and practical, easy to understand guidelines for the health care and management of common problems of horses. Although ongoing research continues to increase our knowledge and understanding of lameness, respiratory diseases, and problems associated with exercise and nutrition, much of this information is slow to reach you as horse owners and trainers. Much of the information in textbooks is either written above practical understanding, or is already dated on publication. Many of the magazines serving the horse industry publish regular veterinary and health care articles but often these have limited practical management hints and guidelines.

Over the last seven editions of Health Care and Common Problems, the emphasis has been on providing the latest information based on research and an explanation of the underlying causes of major problems to give you a better understanding and practical guidelines for management and therapy.

This, the Eighth Edition, is expanded over previous editions, but retains the concept of a practical advice book, with a revised open layout, and additional hints and diagrams to make this booklet a more useful and readable companion handbook. Whilst this new edition provides up-to-date information on health care, veterinary facts and practical hints on the use of medicinal treatments and supplements, it serves only to complement the treatment and specific management advice provided by your own veterinary surgeon.
