The UC Davis Book of Horses addresses everything from the selection of a horse to breeding management to emergency medical procedures in understandable - but not oversimplifiedstyle. An extensive glossary defines complicated medical terms clearly and concisely. The UC Davis Book of Horses does not replace a trained veterinarian, but it will help those.

They will learn to recognize and identify potential problems and to work in conjunction with their veterinarian in providing the best prevention, care, and treatment for their horses. It takes more than horse sense to raise to healthy, productive animal. The UC Davis Book of Horses is a source of current information on nutritional requirements, with a review of diseases of dietary origin. It discusses reproduction.
