Lameness, one of the most common and most troublesome of all equine ailments, remains the primary reason why horses are unable to fulfill their potential and their riders' and trainers' expectations. More preparation time is lost, more competitions are missed, and more careers are prematurely ended because of lameness than any other condition. This book analyzes the causes, diagnoses, and management of the myriad causes of lameness: --Defining and identifying the lame leg; spotting gait abnormalities and non-muscular causes; physical examinations and evaluations; diagnostic tools and other tests; the role of the veterinarian and farrier in pre-purchase examinations. --Physical therapies; the applicability of rest, medications, and other veterinary procedures. --Hoof conformation and shoeing options. --Joint, bone, muscle, and tendon and ligament problems. --Neurological, dermatological, and developmental orthopedic causes of lameness. --Treatment of specific conditions to the foot, pastern and fetlock, cannon and splint bones, knee, upper foreleg, hock, upper hind leg, and back. No other book covers this vital subject in such a comprehensive and understandable fashion. For that reason, no other book deserves a more prominent place on the shelf of anyone who owns, trains, rides, or drives horses.

Back by popular demand! Bowed tendons are the most dreaded performance injury in horses. The sight of a hot, swollen tendon strikes fear into the heart of every horse owner and trainer. Until now, there has been little sound advice on how to treat a bowed tendon and even less information on how to prevent one. The Bowed Tendon Book outlines the hour-by-hour treatment for a bowed tendon and how to bring the horse back safely to winning performance. It explains how to spot a bow in the early stages and how to avoid bowed tendons altogether. This book tells why horses bow tendons and injure suspensory ligaments and how trainers, riders and farriers contribute to these injuries.
