Overview

This comprehensive text not only covers basic principles of horseshoeing, but also focuses on medical and surgical foot care management. Starting with the anatomy and physiology of the equine foot, this one-of-a-kind book then evaluates the foot, its pathological conditions (including structural, developmental, and traumatic conditions in addition to laminitis), balancing and shoeing the healthy and diseased equine hoof, and ends with a chapter on new directions in equine podiatry, written by cutting-edge researchers in the field.

• Written by and for both veterinarians and farriers, this book makes it easier for veterinarians and farriers to collaborate on the proper care and shoeing of the horse's foot.
• Text is devoted entirely to equine podiatry — with 70 percent to 80 percent of lameness problems involving the foot, this comprehensive discussion is invaluable to the equine practitioner.
• Highly respected and qualified authors from all over the world provide expert information, along with a chapter on the future of equine podiatry.
• Beautiful 4-color design and art program gives the reader helpful visual aids that clarify explanations in the text.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jonathan Hale Foreman, DVM, MS (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This large-scale, multiauthored book represents a unique collaboration between veterinarians and farriers, academicians and field practitioners. It is the first book to bring together all elements of equine foot care into a single volume.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide "a textbook on equine podiatry, needed by the doctor of veterinary medicine and the trained farrier, complementing the skills of both." The hope is to promote an era of "increased cooperation, fraternalism, and shared knowledge between veterinarian and farrier, thereby benefiting the horse and its owner." It remains to be determined if the book is successful in promoting increased cooperation, but it certainly is designed and executed in a manner which should allow farriers and veterinarians to learn more from one another in the care of their joint equine patients.
Audience: The authors state that they have "designed this book for everyone to read, whether [one is] a farrier, horse owner, or veterinarian." The voluminous detail may prove overwhelming initially for lay owners and perhaps even for some veterinary students, but the depth and quality of the information should prove invaluable for all equine practitioners and students. The authors are both veterinarians and farriers, and are well known in their respective fields, as well as in the opposite field of care, as regional or international experts.
Features: Five major sections cover anatomy and physiology, diagnostics, pathology, laminitis, and farriery. The 24 chapters are authored by 43 authorities in the field of equine podiatry. The richest part of the book is undoubtedly the quantity and quality of the numerous glossy illustrations, in color and black-and-white, including schematics, anatomical specimens, photographs, imaging modalities, and photomicrographs. The quality of the illustrations and discussions in the chapter on diagnostic imaging alone make the book worth the affordable price. A section with illustrations (photographs and line drawings where appropriate) of various types and uses of horse shoes should be appended in future editions. While this information might be taken for granted by experienced veterinarians or farriers, its inclusion would broaden the book's appeal to novice veterinarians, farriers, or horse owners.
Assessment: This new book is unique in its level of cooperation between veterinarian and farrier. It should be added to every equine student or practitioner's library and will provide richly-detailed, basic, and applied information on foot conditions and foot care for many years to come.
