About this Book
Equine neurology has become a central part of everyday equine practice. In this practical and comprehensive clinical reference, clinicians will find the up-to-date resources needed to effectively and confidently recognize, diagnose and treat neurologic diseases and disorders in equine patients.
At the heart of the book are practical features, such as diagnostic algorithms, charts and tables, designed to aid in the clinical examination of the nervous system, differential diagnosis, and appropriate methods of treatment. Detailed information on individual diseases and disorders is provided, including etiology, epidemiology, diagnostic methods, treatment, prognosis and prevention. A practical review of the basic anatomy and physiology of the nervous system also provides the essential framework for understanding and treating equine neurological problems.
