Handbook of Equine Emergencies E-Book

Author: Debra Catherine Archer

Publisher: Elsevier Health Sciences

ISBN: 0702054178

Category: Medical

Page: 336

View: 1508

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

Page: 368

View: 5786

Equine Behavior: A guide for Veterinarians and Equine Scientists is the quintessential reference for all who really want to know what makes horses tick. Research in horse behavior has made great strides in recent years. This book examines the truth behind modern trends and ancient traditions. Full of insight, it rounds up the latest findings of practitioners and researchers from all over the world, drawing on both cutting-edge research and best practice. With more than 1,000 references, the book explores equine behavior from first principles, by considering the behavior of free-ranging horses and focusing on ways in which management and training influence the responses of their domestic counterparts. Equine physicians, trainers, handlers and owners all need to be students of equine behavior, because the first sign of a problem is often a change in behavior. So, whether you own, ride, lead, groom, feed or heal horses, what you observe is vital to your understanding. Behavioral problems in the stable and under saddle are a grave concern for equine veterinarians worldwide, because they can lead to poor performance, welfare issues, abuse and, ultimately, wastage. Traditionally, veterinarians gave priority to the physical health of their equine patients. This book is a unique attempt to demonstrate the way science can throw light on how and why problems and unwelcome behaviors arise. It also offers ways to bring about change for the better. Beautifully illustrated with more than 500 photographs and line diagrams, Equine Behavior: A guide for veterinarians and equine scientists is an essential resource for practising veterinarians, students and enthusiasts with a specific interest in horses, ponies, and donkeys. Professional trainers and handlers, equine scientists and behavior therapists will also find its contents invaluable. Paul McGreevy is Senior Lecturer in Animal Behavior at the University of Sydney's Faculty of Veterinary Science Features a practical, hands-on approach to all aspects of equine behavior Discusses all factors that effect equine behavior Contrasts normal behavior with abnormal behavior Reviews all behavioral problems Lists and reviews the latest drug therapies Addresses difficult-to-treat clinical problems such as head-shaking, with insights from the leading researcher in this area Provides a brief clinical evaluation of 'horse-whispering' Illustrates the key behavioral differences between horses and donkeys
