How were Greek texts on the care and medical treatment of the horse transmitted from antiquity to the present day? Using the evidence of Byzantine manuscripts of the veterinary compilation known as the Hippiatrica, Anne McCabe traces the journey of the texts from the stables to the medieval scriptorium and ultimately to the printed edition. Surviving manuscripts include both magnificent presentation copies and plain ones intended for use in the field. The Hippiatrica is a rich and little-known source of information about horses, medicine, and magic. This book provides a guide to its complex history as well as a host of fascinating details, and includes colour illustrations of a number of manuscript pages.
For the first time pharmacology is tackled as book in its own right. This multi-contributor text provides a complete source of information on drugs used in the horse. Each chapter covers a particular class of drugs or organ system, providing clinical information and discussing therapeutic strategies for managing disease conditions.

A formulary of generic drug names that includes dosages and routes of administration, with a special emphasis on products and dose rates approved for use in horses, is included at the end of the book. The latest information on therapeutic options for horses is provided, including products recently introduced on the market. An alphabetic, generic formulary in the back of the book provides readers with a handy, quick reference. Content is clearly cross referenced, making information concise and easy to find. A practical systems approach is useful to practitioners and students alike. Comprehensive discussions provide a sound basis for making therapeutic decisions in equine practice. Well-referenced content offers readers a solid background in clinical pharmacology and therapeutics.
