Veterinary Treatment for Working Equines
DescriptionThere are an estimated 95 million equines working throughout the world, providing vital power and transport for many communities, especially in developing countries. Focusing on equines used to carry out working tasks such as pulling or carrying, as opposed to those used for riding or racing, this practical veterinary text details the specific treatment requirements to improve welfare of working horses, ponies, mules and donkeys. Chapters discuss diagnostic tests, equipment and medicines, anaesthesia, vaccines, nutrition, dentistry and ophthalmology, and all common conditions including those of heart, wind and limb.
