Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[T]he author's focus on active rehabilitation, careful evaluation of the patient and assesment of biomechanics in the current textbooks places this book high in the ranking of texts in the field.... we are sure that Animal Physiotherapy, Assesment, Treatment and Rehabilitation will be a valuable addition to the library of animal physiotherapists and all those interested to know more about the area of veterinary treatment." European Journal Companion Animal Practice

Animal Physiotherapy: Assessment, Treatment and Rehabilitation of Animals represents a new addition to this area and offers a survey of the basic principles and techniques relevant to this field of practice. Divided into equine and companion animal chapters, this book provides an introduction to many important physiologic principles as well as an overview of many of the more common pathologic conditions a practitioner may encounter. In addition, methods of assessment and techniques of therapy are covered.... The use of various case studies, charts, tables, photographs, and highlighted key points serves to further enhance the ability of readers to understand the text. This book should serve as an additional resource for veterinary students and established veterinarians who seek to better understand the principles and techniques relating to the practice of animal rehabilitation." Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association

"This book is very comprehensive and a mine of information for physiotherapists…. A useful addition to a practice library." Veterinary Times
