Equine Internal Medicine book cover

Equine Internal Medicine

Equine Internal Medicine is devoted solely to internal medicine. This problem-oriented book is organized into two primary sections. Part 1 focuses on the mechanisms underlying disease and the principles underlying treatment. Part 2 takes a body systems approach to common problems. Individual diseases are discussed in terms of anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, clinical signs, diagnosis, and treatment.
