About this Book

Respiratory diseases are among the most common medical conditions encountered in equine practice. They occur in horses of all breeds and ages, and can have a devastating impact on a horse's health - anorexia, abortion, facial deformities and pneumonia are to name but a few of the consequences.


This book brings all the major equine respiratory diseases together in one single concise volume. Written by two leading equine experts, it enables the reader to relate clinical anatomy, physiology and pathology to clinical signs seen, and to form a rational basis for the control, treatment and prevention of respiratory diseases. Essential reading for all those working in or studying equine medicine, Equine Respiratory Diseases also includes:




  • Diagnostic tests for infectious and non-infectious respiratory disease
  • Details of techniques involved when testing for respiratory diseases
  • Step-by-step practical instructions for carrying out procedures
  • Numerous colour pictures
