Involvement with equine reproduction is very common for the veterinarian in practice, and there is enormous demand for continuing education, particularly in the light of recent changes in science and practice, such as the routine use of ultrasound, improved standards of foal care, and the importance of artificial insemination. The 22 contributing authors, an international blend of specialist equine practitioners and university clinicians, provide by means of superbly illustrated questions and full explanatory answers, a comprehensive, up-to-date, enjoyable and easily read source of information on equine reproduction. Over 30 cases concern the use of ultrasound in the management of the broodmare, some 50 cases cover foal care and common medical /surgical conditions, and there are over 30 cases on the stallion and artificial insemination, plus rarer conditions such as dystocia and foaling trauma. The random order of the cases and the self-assessment format, enable readers to think fully about a problem and devise a solution, just as they would in their daily work. The book appeals equally to veterinarians in training, in practice and in preparation for higher qualifications.

The internationally respected editors and authors have combined to produce this major new textbook and reference source in a single volume, covering all aspects of equine medicine, surgery, and reproduction. The text is supported by a wealth of over 1200 illustrations of the highest quality: color photographs, radiographic and ultrasound images, and diagrams. The book is system-based and each individual system is introduced with precise information on the relevant basic anatomy and physiology, standard clinical examination techniques and useful differential diagnostic aids. This is followed by diseases and disorders that are pertinent to that system, grouped together either anatomically or based on presenting clinical signs. Each condition is described using consistent headings: definition/overview, etiology and pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, differential diagnoses, management/treatment, and prognosis. Additional chapters deal with the foal, with wounds and behavioral problems. The focus throughout is on providing clinically relevant information required for practical case management, plus sufficient background on causes and disease processes to enable readers to understand the conditions and the rationale for diagnostic and treatment options. This book is of lasting value as a teaching and training resource for equine specialists, a ready reference for non-specialist practitioners, and a textbook for students in veterinary medicine and related equine courses.

Equine Embryo Transfer

View: 8373

This book briefly reviews the history of equine embryo transfer, covering in clinically practical terms the techniques, equipment, and management protocols currently in use. Embryo transfer has become a big business, especially for breeding racing stock (horses and camels), and is therefore a very important aspect of equine practice. Ed Squires and Pat McCue have been involved with the development of embryo collection and transfer procedures since the early 60s and have both contributed important techniques and innovations to the process through their research and clinical experience. This book captures the clinical experience, so far, and applies it directly to equine practice. The book is of great value to general equine practitioners for reference, equine reproduction specialists, animal science at the graduate level (equine track), and breeders.
