This unique, comprehensive approach to lameness describes the diagnosis and management of conditions that can cause gait abnormalities in horses, exploring both traditional treatments and alternative therapies. Broader in scope than any other book of its kind, it offers detailed descriptions of equine sporting activities and specific lameness conditions in major sport horse types. Up-to-date information on all imaging modalities encompasses radiography, ultrasonography, nuclear scintigraphy, thermography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, arthroscopy, tenoscopy and bursoscopy. Particular emphasis is placed on clinical examination and diagnostic analgesia. A companion CD-ROM features nearly 60 minutes of video segments that demonstrate common forelimb and hindlimb lameness and gait abnormalities.
