This second edition of "Horse Anatomy: A Pictorial Approach to Equine Structure" has been completely revised and enlarged. Its original 25 pages of illustrations have more than doubled and now include over 250 individual drawings. All of these drawings have been specially prepared for this new edition by John Goody, and all are fully labelled and annotated in the accompanying legends. The text is primarily intended to explain and in many instances to expand upon the content of the drawings. The basic make-up of the horse is considered with the 'points' of the horse being shown from several different views. Bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments providing the anatomical basis for these surface points are dealt with in some detail, the emphasis being placed throughout on those structures that can be seen or felt from the surface of the body. Component parts of the digestive, respiratory, urinary and reproductive systems are shown in a number of the drawings, as are nerves and blood vessels. Special consideration is given to the structure of the head, with the emphasis on the nasal cavity, teeth, larynx and guttural pouches. The structure of the limbs is also illustrated in considerable detail, especially the foot, and reference is made to injuries and diseases that can result in poor conformation. The wealth of information contained in the book will be of great interest and value to veterinary and equine studies students, to owners, riders and breeders - in fact anyone requiring to know more about the structure of the horse and what makes it one of the most beautiful of animals.
Don't look a gift horse in the mouth! He's getting rather long in the tooth! These sayings refer to the fact that a horse's age can be assessed by the state of his teeth. Your Horse's Teeth tells us, with the help of explicit photography, exactly how to estimate the age of a horse, as well as describing normal and problem dentition, and how and when to use a 'horse dentist'. This book provides a simple and essential guide to a very technical subject and horse buyers and owners will find it invaluable.
This book brings together edited versions of the keynote review papers presented at the International Symposium on Ruminant Physiology (ISRP). Held every five years, the ISRP is the premier forum for the presentation and discussion of advances in our knowledge of the physiology of ruminant animals. The ninth ISRP was held in South Africa in October 1999. * A definitive statement of current knowledge in this subject. * Contributors are the leading international authorities from Europe, North America, South Africa and Australasia. * The ISRP has an excellent reputation for quality papers
This comprehensive handbook covers how to acquire a healthy flock, carry out routine procedures to keep them healthy, recognise common diseases, identify problems and deal with them, and when to consult the vet. Written by two qualified veterinary surgeons, each with experience of running their own flocks, the book's easy-to-follow style should be useful to sheep keepers, from novices or amateurs with small flocks, to those with larger or pedigree flocks.
Research into equine artificial insemination has recently expanded with increasing horse numbers, the developing leisure interest in horse riding and the realization of the economic advantages of artificial insemination. This book provides a detailed reference book on the subject and covers its historical development, relevant equine physiology, current practices and future possibilities. It is extensively referenced to allow further reading into specialized areas.
This standard textbook on the bones, surfaces, movement and conformation of the horse was prepared by R. H. Smythe MRCVS and first published in 1967. Five years later, Dr P. C. Goody, B.Sc., PhD., revised and expanded the book, providing a wide new base of valuable anatomical information. This third edition came to fruition in 1992 when Peter Gray MVB, MRCVS, completely revised and updated the work, bringing a clinical viewpoint to the existing text, and by combining the knowledge of structural characteristics with the known stresses caused by diverse factors such as concussion and conformation, and an examination of spinal dynamics and muscular injuries, enables the reader to understand more easily how and why lameness occurs. The result is a work which will be of inestimable benefit to a new generation of students and horse owners.
This book is the third in a set of four providing a series on controlled reproduction in farm animals. The aim of the series is to provide a general review of the literature dealing with the different ways in which reproduction in the major farm mammals can be controlled and manipulated. The four volumes are effectively an expanded and new edition of a previous work, "Controlled Breeding in Farm Animals" (Pergamon Press, 1983). However, the literature on this subject has expanded so rapidly since the time of the earlier volume, that it is now thought appropriate to publish it in four separate volumes. Buffaloes, goats, deer and camelids have been added to the species covered by the series compared to the previous book. All volumes provide comprehensive reference lists and are fully up-to-date. This third volume focuses on pigs. It will appeal to reproductive physiologists and workers in animal production, animal breeding and veterinary medicine.

Turner and McIlwraith s Techniques in Large Animal Surgery, Fourth Edition is an updated version of the classic resource for step-by-step instruction on basic surgical techniques in cattle, horses, swine, goats, and llamas. With detailed line drawings to demonstrate the principles discussed, the book addresses general aspects of surgery such as anesthesia and equipment and provides descriptions of surgical conditions and techniques commonly encountered in large animal practice. Now including a website with interactive review questions and the figures from the book in PowerPoint, the Fourth Edition is a highly practical, reliable guide for veterinary students and veterinary practitioners with a large animal caseload. The Fourth Edition includes eight new techniques and completely rewritten chapters on anesthesia, equine wound management, and surgical techniques in bovine and swine patients, as well as revisions to reflect advances throughout the book and updated references. Turner and McIlwraith s Techniques in Large Animal Surgery continues to supply students and practitioners alike with a valuable resource on the fundamental techniques of farm animal surgery.
The text of this book with regional approach of teaching and studying veterinary gross anatomy has been divided in six parts. The first part comprises the basics of veterinary anatomy described in the conventional form of systemic anatomy while the remaining five parts comprise region wise description of gross anatomy. Each of these parts contains the description of all anatomical structures viz. bones, joints, muscles, viscera, blood vessels, lymphatics nerves, etc located in the respective region of the animal body viz. head, neck, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and the fore and hind limb. Bovine animal, the ox, has been considered as a model species for detail description of the anatomical features, while the major differences or remarkable features in other species like horse, dog, sheep and goat, pig and fowl have been described under a separate heading as Comparative Anatomy at the end of each section. In addition to this, a separate section on Applied Anatomy has been introduced at the end of each regional part. This will make it easy to understand the applications of the anatomical features that form the basis of surgical, diagnostic, medical and obstetrical techniques in the solution of clinical disorders which is the main purpose of regional pattern of learning the anatomy. Because of these distinctive features, the book has become a little voluminous and therefore, had to be split into two volumes. Part-I comprises the first three parts viz-General Systemic Anatomy, Anatomy of Head and Neck and the Anatomy of Thorax while the Part-II comprises the next three parts viz- the Anatomy of Abdomen and Pelvis, the Anatomy of Fore limb and the Anatomy of Hind Limb.
It will be used as a tool of interventional strategies for prevention and control of parasitic zoonoses of livestock and their rearers belonging to socioeconomically poor communities by imparting knowledge through training of field veterinarians. The books aims to provide, for Veterinary Doctors, modern practices on the production of dairy animal, sheep and goat farming to know how productivity can be improved by introducing appropriate, low- cost approaches. It describes the steps that can be taken to improve health of animals and reduce the mortality. More costly techniques such as supplementary feeding, intensive rearing is also covered in this manual. This information could be used for planning, implementing and monitoring livestock programme. It is expected that service providers will educate the farmers about the extra costs and labour that would be required for more intensive livestock farming.
