This fully-revised new edition of the bestselling Equine Clinical Medicine, Surgery and Reproduction is supported by over 1800 illustrations of the highest quality: colour photographs, radiographic and ultrasound images, and diagrams. System-based, the chapters introduce each individual system 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 behavioural problems. New to the second edition is expanded material on the musculoskeletal system, a new muscle section, updated information on reproduction, including assisted breeding and laparoscopic techniques, more information on diagnostic tests including over ground endoscopy, chest ultrasonography and head CT, and a significantly expanded surgical section. The material on equine dentistry, neurology, endocrine system and the liver has also been considerably developed. The focus throughout remains on providing clinically relevant information required for practical case management, plus sufficient background on causes and disease processes to enable readers to understand the conditions and the rationale for diagnostic and treatment options. Expert authors come together under the editorship of Dr Graham Munroe to create a textbook that will be of lasting value as a teaching and training resource for equine specialists and students in veterinary medicine and related equine courses, as well as a ready reference for non-specialist practitioners. ystem, a new muscle section, updated information on reproduction, including assisted breeding and laparoscopic techniques, more information on diagnostic tests including over ground endoscopy, chest ultrasonography and head CT, and a significantly expanded surgical section.
