About this Book
Equine Nutrition and Feeding has become the standard work on the subject, covering every aspect of the nutrition of breeding, growing and working horses, describing the basis upon which scientifically derived conclusions for nutrition and dietary requirements are reached. Following the last edition in 1998, the book has been extensively updated, revised and rewritten with reference to well over 400 papers that have been published since 1998 on equine science. It has been made more practical by setting out the implications of new research for feeding programmes and it includes a full account of the toxicology and metabolic and other diseases, related to diet. Their causes and control are discussed and comprehensive lists of definitions of the terms and abbreviations used are given.
