Book Reviews
"Equine Internal Medicine has been a staple reference for equine practitioners for 20 years, and the fourth edition is no exception. ...Each section is authored by acknowledged experts who have funnelled their impressive knowledge into a fairly easy-to-navigate source. I think it is an excellent first-line reference for equine practitioners." -Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association
