Whether to confirm a diagnosis, or to narrow down a list of differentials, a wide range of tests, procedures and methods of investigation are available to veterinarians in equine practice. Practical information about particular techniques is often difficult to find in standard textbooks of equine medicine and surgery, in which investigations are indicated, but rarely described in detail. Diagnostic Techniques in Equine Medicine provides the practical information required to be able to undertake all these procedures. Clear step-by-step descriptions are illustrated with photographs and line drawings, resulting in a unique resource for students and practitioners.
Diagnostic Techniques in Equine Medicine will be of particular value to practitioners in mixed practice who see occasional equine patients, to newly qualified veterinarians, and to veterinary students, all of whom may need clear and precise guidance on how to perform unfamiliar diagnsotic techniques.
