There are approximately 5,780 vets in the UK seeing horses regularly and 800 final year students per year studying equine. Equine emergencies (e.g. Musculoskeletal, Respiratory, Ophthalmic or Foal) are regular occurrences: most vets are not called out regularly enough to become specialists, but do need to know enough to treat these emergencies. The idea of this book is to be a quick practical reference guide that a vet could keep handy in such emergencies. Currently there are no other easy to use pocketbooks on this subject in the market. The existing Equine Emergencies texts are either aimed at horse owners or are too detailed to be useful in this context, very large and include uncommon equine emergencies and advanced techniques that are irrelevant to the mixed practitioner. - Suitable for all equine practitioners - Concise and practical layout and content - Accessible online downloads
