A practical and comprehensive reference for equine dermatology cases

The newly revised Second Edition of Practical Equine Dermatology delivers a thorough exploration of common dermatological conditions affecting horses whilst also drawing attention to rarer conditions.

The book offers detailed advice on treatments and products currently available on the veterinary market in a problem-oriented layout that provides a practical approach to quick and efficient diagnosis. Clinical presentations, diagnostic features, and disorder management for each described condition are presented in an easy-to-digest bullet-point format supported by concise references and recommendations for further reading.

An ideal quick reference for veterinary practitioners on the key points of equine skin conditions, this new edition also includes:

  • A thorough introduction to the diagnostic approach, including taking an accurate history, the clinical examination, and diagnostic tests.
  • Comprehensive exploration of pruritus, including contagious conditions, such as ectoparasites and helminth infestation, and non-contagious conditions, such as insect attack and atopic dermatitis.
  • Practical discussion of crusting and scaling, including primary seborrhoea and infectious causes, such as superficial fungal infections and environmental factors.
  • In-depth examination of ulcers and erosions, nodules and swellings, coat problems, and pigmentary disorders.

Perfect for any practising veterinarian seeing equine cases in first opinion practice, Practical Equine Dermatology will also be of use to veterinary students with an interest in equine veterinary medicine.
