Reviews

"This new edition, as well as incorporating an extensive revision of the original text, incorporates new chapters on wound management, critical care, anaesthesia and diagnostic imaging...The book is well illustrated throughout and the reproduction of the colour images is outstanding...This is an ideal book for the veterinary students wanting to dip into equine medicine and surgery...The widespread  use of bullet points and  short punchy paragraphs, in conjunction with an excellent index and contents list, makes the text very easy to read and to navigate, and this second edition is certain to become just as popular as the already well-established first edition. Good value and to be recommended."
