In this practical and comprehensive clinical reference, clinicians will find the up-to-date resources needed to effectively and confidently recognize, diagnose, and treat neurologic diseases and disorders in equine patients. The editors and authors have used their collective experience to produce a volume that integrates the necessary fundamental concepts into a clinical approach to the numerous afflictions of the nervous system of the horse.

  • Organized into three complementary sections mirroring the problem-based approach necessary to treat disease
  • A working tool and reference for clinicians, veterinary students, residents, and specialty clinicians
