101 Veterinary Tips for Horse Owners is a very useful handbook for equine caregivers whose horses are faced with medical problems. But, equally as important, it offers invaluable tips to help you prevent various medical conditions from occurring in your horse in the first place.
The author, a leading practitioner and herself a horse owner, indicates what a horse owner can do on his or her own, when a veterinarian must be called, and what the owner should do while waiting during an emergency for the vet to arrive. Additionally, the book offers a better understanding
of common horse health problems, so that caregivers can make logical treatment decisions with their veterinarians.

As a horse owner, I have a whole shelf of reference books covering horse care, emergency treatment, lameness, first aid, etc., but as soon as I glanced through this one, I knew I was going to have to add it to my collection. It doesn't have the depth of the bigger veterinary references, but it presents the basics well. It also has great pictures, and clear, simple, and straightforward explanations. If you give your own shots, wormer, or would like to know what rain rot looks like, this is a really handy book to have on hand. I'd highly recommend it for new horse owners, and as a handy refresher tool for those of us who've been in the game for a while.
