"This book would be a welcome addition to the general equine practitioners or mixed animal practitioners library. Easy navigation to specific topics of interest and presentation of clear and concise information, which is frequently supported by appropriate photographs, provides an informative and time-efficient method
of learning." -- Robyn Charman, "Australian Veterinary Journal," June, 2012
The internationally respected editors and authors have combined their expertise to produce this major new textbook and reference source in a single volume, covering all aspects of equine medicine, surgery and reproduction. The text is supported by a wealth of over 1200 illustrations of the highest quality -- color photographs, radiographic and ultrasound images, and diagrams. The book is system-based and each individual system is introduced with precise information on the relevant basic anatomy and physiology, standard clinical examination techniques and useful differential diagnostic aids. This is followed by diseases and disorders that are pertinent to that system, grouped together either anatomically or based on presenting clinical signs. Each condition is described using consistent headings -- definition/overview, etiology and pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, differential diagnoses, management/treatment, and prognosis. Additional chapters deal with the foal, with wounds and behavioral problems.

For the next generation of mixed practice vets, recent graduates and clinical students, Munroe and Weese have created a great first point of reference... The contributor list is impressive... The information contained in each section is sufficient to allow a thorough initial examination, to inform the client on their horse's condition and to direct the next diagnostic or therapeutic step... should be an essential part of any general practice's library.
