Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David E. Freeman, MVB, PhD (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This handbook on colic in the horse is written to provide useful information for the student and equine practitioner.
Purpose: The purpose is to pare down the enormous volume of information on colic so that the important facts are available to the equine practitioner and student. These are worthy objectives, satisfied by this book in a unique way.
Audience: The book is written for the equine practitioner and veterinary student. Its value could basically extend to include mixed animal practitioners that deal with the occasional colic. Both authors are very credible authorities on this subject matter.
Features: This book is a very well-balanced and well-written text on a critical subject. Crucial information is covered, especially in excellent sections on husbandry and prevention that are not available elsewhere. The parasite section is excellent. Although prognostication is important in academic sections, it is weakened by difficulty of application in the individual horse and the rapidity in which the data used to generate it becomes outdated as equine colic management improves.
Assessment: This book is a unique, readable, and thorough overview of colic that is not available in other forms. Few, if any, other books available are as well directed at this audience.
