Bonnie Rush, Tim Mair
R2,510 Discovery Miles 25 100 Out of stock

Respiratory diseases are among the most common medical conditions encountered in equine practice. They occur in horses of all breeds and ages, and can have a devastating impact on a horse's health - anorexia, abortion, facial deformities and pneumonia are to name but a few of the consequences.


This book brings all the major equine respiratory diseases together in one single concise volume. Written by two leading equine experts, it enables the reader to relate clinical anatomy, physiology and pathology to clinical signs seen, and to form a rational basis for the control, treatment and prevention of respiratory diseases. Essential reading for all those working in or studying equine medicine, "Equine Respiratory Diseases" also includes:



Diagnostic tests for infectious and non-infectious respiratory disease
Details of techniques involved when testing for respiratory diseases
Step-by-step practical instructions for carrying out procedures

The Equine Distal Limb - An Atlas of Clinical Anatomy and Comparative Imaging (Hardcover): Jean-Marie Denoix The Equine Distal Limb - An Atlas of Clinical Anatomy and Comparative Imaging (Hardcover)
Jean-Marie Denoix
R5,213 Discovery Miles 52 130 Out of stock

Jean-Marie Denoix is the world's leading equine musculoskeletal system anatomist and has become one of the foremost equine diagnostic ultrasonographers. There is therefore nobody better to compile a reference atlas of the clinical anatomy of the foot, pastern and fetlock, correlated with images obtained by radiography, diagnostic ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging. Advanced imaging techniques require in depth knowledge of anatomy for accurate interpretation and especially when using magnetic resonance imaging this must be a 3-dimensional concept of anatomy. This book provides a unique contribution and is an invaluable reference text. The image quality is extraordinarily high and the multiple views of each area of the distal limb provide an extremely detailed evaluation. Each part opens with a characteristically superb anatomical drawing by the author. Each spread of pages deals with a single dissection viewed by means of colour photographs, labelled black and white equivalents, plus x-rays, ultrasound and MRI scans as required. The book is designed for maximum clarity using a generous page size. The atlas is essential for anybody involved in detailed anatomical study, complex lameness evaluation or advanced imaging techniques.

A section on differential diagnosis is then provided to support clinical decision-making, followed by a review of current thinking on the zoonotic aspects of equine infectious diseases, and a guide to clinical pathology to underline its diagnostic importance. Infectious Diseases of the Horse is illustrated throughout by a wealth of clinical and microscopic images, and is of value to all veterinary practitioners, scientists, students, technicians and nurses working with horses. Key features * Collaboration between a clinician and a pathologist * Latest diagnostic aids, including developments in molecular biology * Focus on clinical observation and differential diagnosis * Wealth of top-quality colour images

The authors provide a problem-oriented approach to the assessment and management of respiratory illness in horses. The book deals first with the anatomy, function and clinical examination of the respiratory system, followed by discussion of diagnostic tests and procedures. The clinical section is focused around the cardinal presenting manifestations of equine respiratory disease: coughing, nasal discharge, increased breathing efforts, respiratory noise, plus a chapter on congenital abnormalities. The text is presented systematically covering definition, aetiology, pathophysioplogy, clinical presentation, differential diagnoses, diagnosis, management and treatment. The book is illustrated throughout with excellent quality colour photos, diagrams and algorithms. It is of lasting value to equine specialists in practice and in training, and will be a useful reference for non-specialist practitioners.

Horses, like humans athletes, can suffer from muscular stiffness, strains and injuries, all of which can benefit from well-applied sports massage. Using simple massage techniques - namely, compressions and cross-fibre friction - Pennie explains that it's not difficult to give your horse a basic sports massage, given a little practice. She explains how to recognise problems, through observing your horse on the move and by using your hands on his body. Clear diagrams and photos show where and how to apply the massage techniques to aid specific problems. As a preventative treatment against muscle problems, Sports massage is second to none. Moreover, most horses really enjoy a good massage, just as we do, making them feel better and move more freely as a result.

Horse behaviour and welfare is a major issue as horses are mainly sport and recreational animals where the human-animal relation is essential. Scientific studies on this topic have increased greatly over the last decade and this publication enlightens some of the major issues raised such as horse temperament, early experience, horsing and social management and equine behaviour welfare. Precise studies are described here, that are placed in the more general context of the international scientific advances. Important behavioural aspects concern: how to measure temperament traits and the genetic/experimental influences on temperament, when, how and whether to handle foals in order to improve human/foal relation, the importance of the social environment on the behaviour of young and adult horses. On the other hand, the improvement of equine welfare through better practices is described such as housing design, feeding practices or social grouping. The use of behavioural cues in order to assess welfare is discussed and tested through experimental approaches. This book constitutes a very rich overview of the recent and new research lines in the field of horse behaviour and welfare.
