This concise, practical text covers the essential information veterinary students, new graduates and practitioners need to succeed in equine practice, focussing on lameness. Written for an international readership, the book conveys the core information in an easily digestible, precise form with extensive use of bullet-points, lists, diagrams, protocols and extensive illustration (over 650 full colour, high quality photographs).
Part of a five-book series that extracts and updates key information from Munroe’s Equine Surgery, Reproduction and Medicine, Second Edition, the book distils best practice in a logical straightforward clinical-based approach. It details clinical anatomy, physical clinical examination techniques, diagnostic techniques and normal parameters, emphasising the things regularly available to general practitioners with minimal information of advanced techniques. The clinical information is split into anatomy-based sections.
Ideal for veterinary students on clinical placements with horses as well as for practitioners needing a quick reference ‘on the ground’, the spiralbound format allows the book to lie open during practice.
- Approach to the Lame Horse
- The Foal and Developing Animal
- The Foot
- The Forelimb
- The Hindlimb

- Soft Tissue Injuries
"Veterinary students would love this! I have seen the success of similar books in small animal medicine and how useful they can be on rotations when a quick reference is needed. I think it would equally be of benefit to residents and practitioners needing quick refreshers."
Carla Lusi, University of Melbourne, Australia, author of Fascial Anatomy of the Equine Forelimb (CRC Press)
"I think this Equine textbook will be exceptionally well received. Although the original book Equine Clinical Medicine, Surgery and Reproduction really helped me personally through university, I could only ever use it at my desk or at the library. More concise books allow students and new grads to have them at hand all the time, especially during rotations for quick reference. Leave the 1500 page book at home and take just what they need for the day! Each disease or syndrome has the same layout, allowing a vey quick reference, and the images are amazing. They are good quality and allow very immersive learning."
Sophie Neasham, Veterinary surgeon, UK
"While the volume Equine Clinical Medicine, Surgery and Reproduction, Second Edition is a great resource for reference, say, when wanting to research differential diagnoses for a case or brush up on a disease, it is not practical to be used out in the field. This smaller, more focused reference guide is more amenable to practical day-to-day veterinary use. For example, when out on a call and you need a quick reference on how to treat a specific presentation, having a resource which is concise and targeted is more user friendly than a large volume."
Rachael Harmer, Veterinary Medicine student at the University of Surrey (2016-2021), UK
