Handling Equine Patients - A Handbook for Veterinary Students & Veterinary Technicians (Paperback)
This long needed handbook describes and illustrates with dozens of photos how equine patients should be handled when undergoing treatment. The schools, loaded with today's exploding technology, simply don't have time to provide the practical instruction necessary to the relatively few graduates who will be in equine practice. Far too many patients and personnel are injured every year, some seriously, and too much costly equipment is damaged by frightened and resistant equine patients. Such problems can be greatly minimized by an appropriate approach and skillful handling. Long time experienced practitioner and internationally recognized equine behaviorist Robert M. Miller, DVM was asked to produce this handbook which, although specifically aimed at students, will be of value to anyone who has to doctor horses.
