Can you tell the difference between a healthy horse and one that’s not quite right? A comprehensive understanding of proper horse care and maintenance will help you ensure that your horse is happy and in tip-top shape. In John Lyons’ manual Veterinary Care for the Perfect Horse, read detailed explanations of how to discriminate between normal and concerning behavior; how to treat and prevent common and not-so-common ailments; and the purpose of frequently used health tests such as Coggins, X-rays, and health certification assessments. This is a handy, helpful book to have on the shelf to enhance overall horse know-how, and to reference when you’re stumped.
