Overview

The Complete Equine Veterinary Manual

By Tony & Marcy Pavord

Every horse owner has experienced that feeling of helplessness when something is wrong with his or her animal. While correct diagnosis of any equine disease may have once proven complicated, this extraordinary reference provides fast, comprehensive insights into equine health, and tells horse owners exactly when expert help is needed.

Readers will find detailed assessments of the cause, symptoms and treatment of every known equine disease, enabling them to access relevant information as quickly as possible. It also offers two cross-referenced routes for finding the necessary guidance: 1) via an index of known equine diseases throughout the world, and 2) an alphabetical encyclopedia of specific diseases. Full-color photographs accompanying various maladies aid in identifying specific conditions.

Including the latest research from all over the world, this book is a must-have for veterinary surgeons and students, and the perfect addition to the bookshelves of amateur and professional horse owners alike.

Tony Pavord is the senior partner of a large veterinary practice in Wales. He specializes in the equine field and has particular interests in competition vetting, selection, training and breeding of endurance sport horses. Marcy Pavord is a freelance equestrian writer and regular contributor to various publications including Horse & Hound, Riding and Horse and Rider. She has written and contributed to several equestrian books and has served on two committees of the British Horse Society. Tony and Marcy live in Abergavenny, Gwent, UK.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Here are two comprehensive reference works for the horse owner, both written by British authors using British spelling. The Pavords, an equine veterinarian and an equestrian writer, respectively, divide their book into four sections. Part 1 explains equine anatomy, discusses routine preventive care and first aid, and enumerates symptoms warranting professional veterinary attention. The text is copiously illustrated with full-color photographs and drawings. Part 2 consists of lists of diseases in tabular format, arranged by system and describing symptoms, cause, and treatment. Part 3 is a recapitulation of these diseases in dictionary arrangement. The final section consists of appendixes explaining U.K. protocols for the treatment of strangles (distemper), the control of venereal diseases during breeding, and artificial insemination. The latter information seems of marginal interest to the U.S. amateur horse owner. Rossdale, an equine veterinarian, and Wreford, a former reporter for the Sporting Life, have updated their comprehensive yet succinct dictionary, first published in 1974 and previously revised in 1989, to reflect changes effected by emerging technology and new medical discoveries. Definitions for diseases include symptoms, etiology, diagnosis, and treatment and, in some instances, are accompanied by black-and-white illustrations. Charts of muscles and arteries, lists of drug manufacturers in Great Britain and North America, and a table of proprietary drug names complete the book. Public libraries serving patrons who ride or own horses may have to choose between the attractive and informative, if pricey, Pavord book and the relatively inexpensive yet comprehensive Rossdale/Wreford book. Academic or special libraries serving veterinarian or vet technician students will want to own both.Florence Scarinci, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden City, NY
