Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: R. Dean Scoggins, DVM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is an especially useful book relating to clinical nutrition and how it impacts on care and use of the horse. It is a very attractive and well-organized work.
Purpose: It is a useful source of tested and evaluated information regarding the interrelationships of nutrition, feeding practices, and overall horse health and care.
Audience: Nutritionists, veterinarians, and students in animal science or veterinary medicine will benefit from this book.
Features: The strongest feature is the way in which nutritional concerns, feeding practices, usage of the horse, and the health and soundness of the horse are all interrelated.
Assessment: This is a valuable text for any student of horses to have and to study. It emphasizes that no subject stands alone. Clinicians, nutritionists, students, owners, and caretakers will all better understand that it all is interconnected.

A clinical nutrition text, for veterinarians and nutritionists, on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of equine nutritional and feed- related diseases. The first section emphasizes the nutrients needed by the horse and their sources. The second section describes feeding to meet these needs, as well as additional aspects of care. In section three, emphasis is on the sick horse--the diagnosis of the cause and dietary and nutritional support, as well as other aspects of medical management. The appendices, Equine Nutritional Requirements, Feed Composition, and Conversion Tables, give information needed repeatedly for feeding and care of the horse. Amply illustrated in b&w. Annotation c.
