"The second edition of Equine Wound Management will be welcomed by veterinary
students, practitioners, and clinicians... With 20 authors providing expertise
and practical information, the text is twice as large as the first edition and
not only will be a useful quick reference guide, but also will provide in-depth
information on physiologic, pathophysiologic, and clinical management of equine
wound healing. This edition has been much enhanced by the addition of numerous
color photographs, tables, and drawings as well as mant of the original classic
line drawings. The authors have managed to effectively cover and expand on an
extremely wide range of topics, from physiology of basic wound healing to innovative
and newer techniques of wound management.... essential for those needing a complete
text on equine wound management." - Journal of the American
Veterinary Medical Association, September 2009
