A clinician and a pathologist collaborate to create a comprehensive yet practical book about established infectious diseases of horses, categorised according to the different pathogens. The book evaluates the latest diagnostic aids, including rapid developments in molecular biology, while emphasising that they are no substitute for clinical observation and skills. The majority of equine infectious diseases caused by microbes and parasites are covered - bacterial, viral, protozoan, fungal, ectoparasitic and helminthic. Practical appendices contain a list of differential diagnoses based on clinical signs to support clinical decision-making, a list of zoonoses and reportable diseases, and an elaborate illustrated appendix on clinical pathology and haematology. Thoroughly updated a decade after the release of the original text, the book continues to be concise and easy to understand and remains an important resource for uncommon conditions. It adds new sections on pythiosis, equine encephalosis/Peruvian horse sickness virus, Acinetobacter baumanii, enteric coronavirus-induced disease, and viral hepatitis, as well as updated nomenclature according to the latest reference databases. The most dynamic changes in veterinary medicine concern the development of new molecular diagnostic techniques and therapies, and these have been updated with most recent references throughout this second edition. Finally, the exceptional, full-colour clinical and microscopic images are showcased in a larger format. Infectious Diseases of the Horse is a valuable resource for all veterinary practitioners, scientists, pathologists, students, technicians and nurses working with horses.

Covering many different diagnostic tools, this essential resource explores both traditional treatments and alternative therapies for conditions that can cause gait abnormalities in horses. Broader in scope than any other book of its kind, this edition describes equine sporting activities and specific lameness conditions in major sport horse types, and includes up-to-date information on all imaging modalities. This title includes additional digital media when purchased in print format. For this digital book edition, media content may not be included. Cutting-edge information on diagnostic application for computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging includes the most comprehensive section available on MRI in the live horse. Coverage of traditional treatment modalities also includes many aspects of alternative therapy, with a practical and realistic perspective on prognosis. An examination of the various types of horses used in sports describes the lameness conditions to which each horse type is particularly prone, as well as differences in prognosis. Guidelines on how to proceed when a diagnosis cannot easily be reached help you manage conditions when faced with the limitations of current diagnostic capabilities. Clinical examination and diagnostic analgesia are given a special emphasis. Practical, hands-on information covers a wide range of horse types from around the world. A global perspective is provided by a team of international authors, editors, and contributors. A full-color insert shows thermography images. Updated chapters include the most current information on topics such as MRI, foot pain, stem cell therapy, and shock wave treatment. Two new chapters include The Biomechanics of the Equine Limb and its Effect on Lameness and Clinical Use of Stem Cells, Marrow Components, and Other Growth Factors. The chapter on the hock has been expanded substantially, and the section on lameness associated with the foot has been completely rewritten to include state-of-the-art information based on what has been learned from MRI. Many new figures appear throughout the book.
