This concise, practical text covers the essential information veterinary students need to succeed in Equine medicine and surgery, focusing on the nervous system, eyes, cardiovascular disorders and haemolymphatic systems. Written for an international readership, the book includes a glossary of terms and conveys the core information in an easily digestible, precise form with extensive use of bullet-points, tables, flow-charts, diagrams, lists, protocols and extensive illustration.

Part of a five-book series that extracts and updates key information from Munroe's Equine Surgery, Reproduction and Medicine, Second Edition, the book distils best practice in a logical straightforward clinical-based approach. It details clinical anatomy, physical clinical examination techniques, diagnostic techniques and normal parameters, emphasising the things regularly available to general practitioners with minimal information of advanced techniques.

The nervous system section discusses in detail the neurological exam, mentions relevant diagnostic tests, and divides the diseases of the system into congenital, infectious, traumatic, toxin-induced and miscellaneous causes.

In the eye section, the relevant anatomy and the examination of the eye are followed by discussion of useful diagnostic tests and procedures. Diseases of the eye are discussed under the headings of congenital/neonatal, tumours, infectious and inflammatory disorders, neurological based, and parasitic problems.

The cardiological examination and relevant diagnostic tests are followed by sections on arrhythmias, congenital and acquired cardiac diseases, pericardial disease and miscellaneous cardiovascular disease.

Finally, the haemolymphatic section discusses in detail relevant diagnostic approaches and laboratory aids, followed by sections on anaemia, haemostasis disorders, infections and neoplasia.

Ideal for veterinary students and nurses on clinical placements with horses as well as practitioners needing a quick reference 'on the ground'. The spiralbound format allows the book to lie open during practice.
