Equine Veterinary Medicine, Horse Health Including Lameness, Nutrition

Basic First Aid for Horses
by William Jones, DVM, editor, from material in
The Horse: Its Treatment in Health and Disease by Prof. Wortley Axe (1908)

Dr Jones had the clever idea to make a "greatest hits" album from the nine-volume Axe series on equine health published 100 years ago. This is the (condensed) volume on general horse first aid and hygiene, design of stables, etc. Great illustrations especially on bandaging. This is probably highly collectible now but it's good information for owners. I wish I had the original Axe volumes! $10 plus post. Softcover.


Equine Dermatologby Danny Scott and William H. Miller Jr.
Saunders/Elsevier, 2003
This comprehensive clinical textbook for veterinarians covers skin diseases of the horse from essential basics to practical diagnostic methods, therapy, and specific abnormalities and defects. Well illustrated and expertly written by two of the leaders in equine dermatology, this focused presentation discusses all aspects of bacterial, allergic, and environmental skin disease. Relevant topics in a clinically useful format make this an ideal resource for all veterinarians, in addition to anyone specializing in equine medicine. Includes both color and black-and-white photos.
