    DescriptionThe equine dentition (hypsodont) develops differently from that of humans and small animals (brachydont) yet many of the principles of general dentistry are applicable to the equine species. Some are not. Dr Klugh and his contributing authors identify, apply and evaluate the principles of equine dentistry in relation to the horse-their similarities and differences. Such a system is of value in terms of vocabulary, biology and disease process. The book's coverage ranges from anatomy, biomechanics and examination to radiology, anesthesia, trauma, disease and restoration. Top quality color photographs and diagrams illustrate the text throughout. Principles of Equine Dentistry is of value to equine dentists, equine practitioners, instructors and trainees, and to veterinary students.

    Review quote
    Easy to access with clear division into well orgainsed chapter and paragraph sections... should be considered a standard text for anyone considering taking the fellowship examination... detailed description of the techniques backed up by beautifully clear illustrations... essential reading for all surgeons considering oral extractions even those experienced in the technique. Overall, this book will be a useful resource for veterinary surgeon practising equine dentistry and presents an alternative approach to many challenges faced within this field. The approach adopted is thought provoking and is certainly a worthy purchase for any practice library. -Equine Veterinary Journal, July 2010 ...comprehensive text... accurately labelled pictures, diagrams and photographs, [allow] the reader to clearly visualise what is being described. The detailed text, written alongside well-labelled diagrams, provides fantastic instruction on the extraction process. It offers instructive detail on tool choice, placement and use, thereby providing the reader with a expansive guide to theprocedure, and is a real must-read for any veterinarian attempting to perform this procedure... a useful reference book for veterinarians in equine practice who perform basic dentistry and routine rasping, but also for those involved in more advanced equine dentistry and referral work. It is also a good text for those studying towards their dental exams. -Amy Reynolds, Veterinary Record, March 2011 This is a highly readable, richly illustrated practical addition to the literature on equine dentistry... Readers will thoroughly understand the anatomy of horse teeth and how the teeth change as the horse ages, how to recognize and record oral pathology in a standardized format, and how to perform standing oral extractions. They will also have a basic grasp of the principles of restorative treatment and root canal therapy, areas which will continue to change and advance as research progresses. (3 stars) -Carol Akers, DVM, University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, Doody's Review Service
