Download and read online Diagnosis and Management of Lameness in the Horse in PDF and EPUB Covering many different diagnostic tools, this essential resource explores both traditional treatments and alternative therapies for conditions that can cause gait abnormalities in horses. Broader in scope than any other book of its kind, this edition describes equine sporting activities and specific lameness conditions in major sport horse types, and includes up-to-date information on all imaging modalities. This title includes additional digital media when purchased in print format. For this digital book edition, media content may not be included. Cutting-edge information on diagnostic application for computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging includes the most comprehensive section available on MRI in the live horse. Coverage of traditional treatment modalities also includes many aspects of alternative therapy, with a practical and realistic perspective on prognosis. An examination of the various types of horses used in sports describes the lameness conditions to which each horse type is particularly prone, as well as differences in prognosis. Guidelines on how to proceed when a diagnosis cannot easily be reached help you manage conditions when faced with the limitations of current diagnostic capabilities. Clinical examination and diagnostic analgesia are given a special emphasis. Practical, hands-on information covers a wide range of horse types from around the world. A global perspective is provided by a team of international authors, editors, and contributors. A full-color insert shows thermography images. Updated chapters include the most current information on topics such as MRI, foot pain, stem cell therapy, and shock wave treatment. Two new chapters include The Biomechanics of the Equine Limb and its Effect on Lameness and Clinical Use of Stem Cells, Marrow Components, and Other Growth Factors. The chapter on the hock has been expanded substantially, and the section on lameness associated with the foot has been completely rewritten to include state-of-the-art information based on what has been learned from MRI. Many new figures appear throughout the book.

Download and read online Your Horse s Health Lameness in PDF and EPUB This book is a thorough examination of all causes of lameness, the most common and frustrating problem faced by horse owners. Lameness is the primary cause for a horse to be out of action and unrideable. Its cause can be difficult to diagnose and the problem can drag on for weeks, months or even years if the treatment is wrong. All horses are occasionally lame from the regularly ridden and competed horse to the pony left in the field and only ridden at weekends. Its causes are diverse and many ranging from a simple briused sole to difficult to treat tendon injuries and potentially fatal laminitis. All horse owners need to be able to assess lameness, even a small wound can result in the death of a horse if it leads to an infected joint. On the other hand, horse owners can hardly afford to call out the vet everytime their horse stumbles and tweaks a muscle when out in the field.This book gives readers the skills they need to understand the causes of lamness and make well informed decisions on how to address the problem.
