The first book dedicated to this common, serious, and complex equine disease, 'Equine Laminitis' is the gold-standard reference to the latest information on every aspect of the disease and its treatment. This title discusses the current state of knowledge on all aspects of the disease, including its history, relevant anatomical considerations, pathophysiology, the diagnostic workup, and clinical treatment.
