Equine endocrinology.

Book cover for Equine endocrinology.

Description

This first edition of Equine Endocrinology is designed for veterinary students and equine practitioners; it aims at providing a comprehensive yet user-friendly tool to approach and manage common endocrine disorders. Equine endocrinology is a very fast moving field and clinical signs of endocrine and metabolic disorders have become dominant presenting complaints in practice. Equine Endocrinology is divided into an introductory chapter providing the key steps of the clinical approach of equine endocrinology and eight chapters covering the disorders of the main hormonal axes responsible for equine diseases, including female and male reproductive endocrinology. Each chapter is organised in a classic disease-oriented format, briefly presenting the main physiological elements of the key hormonal players and then detailing the epidemiology, clinical signs, diagnostic steps, management and prognosis of each endocrine condition reported in horses. This edition contains more than 50 colour figures and tables to illustrate the physiological mechanisms, clinical findings, diagnostic tests or treatment plans and to allow a better visualisation and understanding of equine metabolic diseases.The motivation for this first edition of Equine Endocrinology stemmed from the inquisitiveness of our students, the dedication of our colleagues in the field and the resilience of horse owners; we hope this book will provide a source of information to improve the management of horses around the world.
