This is one of the first books I turn to when I have a non-emergency medical situation with one of the horses and want to do some slightly more in-depth reading. (It's good for emergencies, too, but the format doesn't lend itself quite as well to hauling to the barn as some others.) It contains good, basic information and directions for such things as sheath washing (how and what to use), worming and vaccination recommendations, floating (what it is and why it's important), etc. It isn't encyclopedic, but it does provide a fairly comprehensive overview of a lot of topics, and it's handy to refer to before or after a vet visit to inform questions and discusison. If your budget doesn't stretch to accommodate multiple references, this is definitely one to consider. ( )

This best-selling reference has been completely revised and updated by two outstanding professionals who know how to communicate the veterinary information nonprofessionals need to maintain their horse's health. Doctors James Giffin and Tom Gore address such basic health-care and management issues as the latest medicines and immunizations, wounds, illnesses, parasites, nutrition and supplements, and reproduction. Just inside the covers, the horse owner can easily access the index of Signs and Symptoms, since responding quickly to an emergency can literally mean the life or death of a horse. Anyone who looks after a horse—whether owner, trainer or groom—can rely on this authoritative book to get them through emergencies and well as routine events. ( )
