In this new, fully updated and expanded edition, James M. Giffin, M.D. and Tom Gore, D.V.M. have incorporated the latest information on veterinary horse care and disease prevention in both words and pictures. Two new chapters, Pediatrics and Geriatrics, have been added in recognition of the importance of these specialty areas. Owners will welcome their straightforward, easy-to-understand approach to a host of topics of interest and concern.
Sudden illness or injury can be life-threatening. An Index of Signs and Symptoms on the inside front cover provides a rapid means to access information and make an informed decision whether to treat an emergency or seek veterinary assistance.
The well-cared-for horse at all stages of life, when given annual vaccinations, scheduled deworming, good dental and foot care, suffers fewer illnesses and infirmities, costs less to maintain, and will repay the small expenses many times over in the pride and pleasure of ownership. Horse Owner's Veterinary Handbook, Second Edition, gives all horsemen, including the 100,000 owners of the first edition, the means to achieve this goal.
