Equine Behavioral Medicine provides an essential resource for those who work with, study, and provide care to horses. It provides critical knowledge to help users understand the complex aspects of their behavior in order to benefit the animal, observe safe practices, and advance research in this area. The book includes current information on normal horse behavior and problem behaviors, particularly those associated with medical conditions, changes in the nervous system, and the use of drug therapy. Readers will gain a comprehensive understanding of the differences of the sensory systems and the concepts of learning that are helpful for successful treatments and safety. With the use of psychopharmacology becoming increasingly common by veterinarians, including for abnormal behaviors, is important to understand the rationale for the use of these medications. Understanding the intimate relationship between behavior, physiology, and health is key to practitioners, students, professionals, and others who work with, or care for, horses.

Lameness, one of the most common and most troublesome of all equine
ailments, remains the primary reason why horses are unable to
fulfill their potential and their riders' and trainers'
expectations. More preparation time is lost, more competitions are
missed, and more careers are prematurely ended because of lameness
than any other condition.
Fully updated and revised, the fourth edition of this popular textbook provides a complete and comprehensive account of how to successfully breed horses. Beginning with a grounding in reproductive anatomy, it reviews endocrine control and selection for breeding mares and stallions, pregnancy, parturition and lactation. - Important new techniques such as cloning, intra-cytoplasmic sperm injections (ICSI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF) are covered in detail and bring the reader up to date. - Over 300 photographs and two-colour illustrations help to explain the text. - A bestselling textbook from an expert, well-known author. This textbook provides complete coverage of equine reproductive physiology, and will continue to be required reading for many equine science and related veterinary courses.
The internationally respected editors and authors have combined 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 - colour photographs, radiographic and ultrasound images, and diagrams. The book is systems-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, aetiology and pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, differential diagnoses, management/treatment, and prognosis. Additional chapters deal with the foal, with wounds and behavioural problems. The focus throughout is 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. Equine Medicine and Surgery will be of lasting value as a teaching and training resource for equine specialists, a ready reference for non-specialist practitioners, and a textbook for students in veterinary medicine and related equine courses.
This edition reproduces all Stubbs' etchings and is taken from the 1853 printing, the last to use Stubbs' original plates. Including a full text of Stubbs' commentary. George Stubbs (1724-1806) was one of the most original artists Britain has produced. Such is the present reputation of his paintings, with their astonishingly convincing portraits of both animals and people, that it is easy to forget how much his success was based on rigorous scientific observation. In 1756 he rented an out-of-the-way farmhouse where he erected a special scaffolding to hold the cadavers of horses as he dissected and drew. (It is said that he had a particularly strong stomach when it came to smells.) After eighteen months of single-minded dedication Stubbs produced the drawings for the "Anatomy of the Horse", which he later etched himself. The result was a sensation. Letters of congratulation coming from scientists from all over Europe, amazed not only at the perfection of the finished work, but that it had been produced privately, without any patronage. The "Anatomy" remained a textbook for artists and scientists for well over a century, and to this day the strange, spare beauty of these prints continues to fascinate.

Horses perceive the world differently from humans because their senses developed differently through evolution to cope with different ways of living and surviving. Horses are essentially prey/flight animals. The horse's senses therefore determine how the world appears to him and how he reacts to it. As the horse's perception and understanding are very different to ours sometimes their reaction to events and their surroundings seem strange to us. In this book the author compares the horses sensory organs with those of humans to avoid misunderstandings as lack of knowledge can lead to many problems when dealing with horses. The five senses are covered in this book: hearing, sight, smell, taste and touch. Each section explains how the horses' sense works and then this is related to care, behavior and riding, explaining why some practices are appropriate and why some are not. The behavioral aspect of dealing with horses is emphasized throughout. The author is founder of the Equine Behaviour Forum and author of over 40 books on equine topics. She has an HNC in Equine Sciences and Management, is a Classical Riding Club Gold Award Holder and classical trainer, an equine shiatsu practitioner, and an Associate Member of the International Society for Equitation Science. This book is useful for all horse owners, horse breeders and trainers who wish to gain a better understanding of how the horse's senses function, and for veterinary students and practitioners.
Laminitis, a horse-centred approach describes in depth the current mainstream thinking on laminitis and suggests ways of reframing our understanding of this challenging condition. New thinking based on putting the horse at the centre of the problem is presented, allowing a better understanding of the biomechanics of laminitis. The book suggests ways in which damaged feet can recover, and also helps the reader to understand the pathological processes within the horse as a whole that lead to laminitis occurring, starting with an understanding of the horse's innate ability to heal itself and working towards interventions that create an environment that is conducive to healing. The book also explores the concept that laminitis, rather than being a disease in its own right, is merely a symptom of a range of underlying health problems that affect the whole horse.
