Overview

Equine Health and Emergency Management is intended for the learner to be able to understand and implement actions to improve the health and wellness of horses in their care. The series of chapters flow from horsemanship and responsibility to guidelines for health and maintenance, and recognizing the difference between a regular veterinary appointment, and a true emergency call. It effectively guides the reader through what's normal, and to recognize what's not. This book can help the effectiveness of the reader's communication with his/her veterinarian. Throughout the chapters there are numerous pictures and tables for reference. Important information on disasters is included covering how to be prepared from formulating a plan to being able to put it into action. The goal of this book is to help the reader think, prepare, plan, and be able take action if necessary, when necessary.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This title can be used in a general horse health course at the undergraduate level and also in a veterinary technoloy large animal diseases course. I think that the book is a good idea. While there are many horse health or first aid books available for the layperson, no book is available that is designed to be used as a textbook. With the continuing interest in horses and the increasing numbers of students in equine programs, I feel this textbook has good potential.

This project is very worthwhile, not just for use as a teaching text for the right class, but also as a reference for horse owner and businesses. It appears to be thorough, in- depth, and well developed.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jonathan Hale Foreman, DVM, MS (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: Written by an experienced New York state equine practitioner, this book details how to implement a farm management plan, understand normal, identify abnormal, manage emergencies with or without a veterinarian (depending upon the severity of the problem and the proximity of a veterinarian), and formulate a farm disaster management plan.
Purpose: The author's keys are prevention, observation, and action. These are worthy goals and the author meets them.
Audience: The audience is "the horse owner, caretaker, or health provider," not veterinary students or veterinarians. However, either of the latter two groups might find the illustrations or the advice to owners who might require more education than experienced owners useful.
Features: The book is divided into three main parts, each of which could stand alone. Part 1 on horsemanship contains sections on safety, husbandry, routine healthcare, and reproductive concerns. Part 2, the main section, deals with healthcare emergencies, including emergency preparedness, wound care, allergic reactions, and circulatory, skin, gastrointestinal, metabolic, musculoskeletal, newborn, neurological, eye, reproductive, and respiratory emergencies. Part 3 constitutes one chapter on disaster preparedness. There is an excellent glossary.
Assessment: This useful book provides excellent information for novice horse owners and experts alike. It is unique in the field in its complete coverage of emergencies and in its vast array of excellent illustrations. Some aspects will require improvement in subsequent editions, such as typographical errors or a few photos that are either out of focus or do not adequately illustrate the topic. It should be recommended for most horse owners, as a textbook for those who teach horsemanship classes, and for veterinary students for whom horses may represent a new species with which they must deal in practice or in veterinary school.
