Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Douglas E. Hutchens, DVM, MS (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This manual includes chapters on all aspects of equine reproduction including, but not limited to, anatomy, endocrinology, physiology, surgery, neonatal management, breeding soundness examinations, postparturient disease, artificial insemination, and embryo transfer. At the conclusion of each chapter, a brief bibliography is presented.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the veterinary student with a guide through a course in equine theriogenology.
Audience: The intended audience is both equine clinicians and veterinary students.
Features: Each chapter lists important learning objectives along with appropriate study questions to help guide the student or veterinarian. Chapter 3 describes various protocols for manipulation of the estrous cycle in the mare to help maximize reproductive efficiency. Also, the table of hormones commonly used in brood mare practice would be an excellent addition to any formulary used by an equine veterinarian or student.
Assessment: This manual is an excellent guide for both practitioners and veterinary students. The chapters are concise but complete in guiding the clinician or student through all of the common procedures performed in equine reproduction. The format of the text is very user friendly. The chapters concerning artificial insemination, semen preservation, and embryo transfer will be very beneficial to the veterinarian not familiar with these procedures, since there is a growing need for clinicians capable of utilizing these techniques. Also, the learning objectives and study questions help focus the veterinary student on the salient points of each chapter.
