In this new, fully updated and expanded edition, James M. Giffin, M.D. and Tom Gore, D.V.M. have incorporated the latest information on veterinary horse care and disease prevention in both words and pictures. Two new chapters, Pediatrics and Geriatrics, have been added in recognition of the importance of these specialty areas. Owners will welcome their straightforward, easy-to-understand approach to a host of topics of interest and concern.
