Horse Healthcare: A Manual for Animal Health Workers and Owners (Paperback)
This manual is designed for those who care for working horses but who may have little or no access to professional veterinary help. By guiding readers to the appropriate action to take when caring for a sick animal, this book will help alleviate the suffering of horses, donkeys and mules and thereby minimize the lost livelihood opportunities that can result. Horse Healthcare is designed to be accessible to both the owners of working equids themselves and the people who can help them out. Simple language is used and the text is clearly laid out with illustrations throughout. This makes the book useful to people who cannot understand standard texts on horse healthcare. The book is not intended to replace the role of the veterinary profession where an adequate animal healthcare service exists. In poorer countries, however, in situations where horse owners have no alternative but to treat their own sick animals, this manual gives guidance on how to do this properly and provides advice on how to prevent many common illnesses of equids. Published in association with the Brooke Hospital for Animals.
