• This book deals exclusively with the equine dermatological problems that the clinician would see in practice. It is the perfect reference for the practitioner who must quickly diagnose and treat the problems. Illustrated in color throughout, coverage progresses from the approach to a case which covers history, signalment, identification of primary vs secondary lesions, distribution of lesions, with examples of differential diagnoses based on the detection of specific lesions to therapy and to chapters of diseases organized by presenting problems and signs - pruritus, allergy, parasitic, crusting, nodules, ulcerative and regional. Over 90 color images together with tables and flow charts provide quick access to important diagnostic and treatment information.
