"This text is practical and well presented and deserves a place on every stud farm veterinarian's book shelf." Carel de Bruyn, Veterinary Review, April 2004
is a very sound textbook which will provide a great springboard for the aspiring equine stud medicine practitioner whether this person is an undergraduate or a non-specialist clinician.
It is essential to have a sound, scientific foundation for making decisions and this book provides as many answers as a textbook can. I recommend it wholeheartedly for anyone concerned with equine reproduction.
The book benefits from good design: information is conveyed economically and clearly using bullet points and boxes backed up by luciddiagrams and excellent photographs.
The work on the placenta, its physiology, pathology and the problems of retained foetal membranes is extremely helpful, the combination of text, diagrams and photographs explains the whole process from cellular level to the clinical presentation.
