This comprehensive equine medicine textbook integrates traditional descriptions of
clinical signs with images, sound recordings, and video so that clinical signs can be
clearly understood and easily related to physical examination findings.

The book follows a problem oriented approach so all the diseases for a given clinical sign
can readily be found. To look up a specific disease, simply type its name in the find box
and select the pages with the most hits. A dosage calculator makes it convenient and accurate to
calculate appropriate volumes to inject or pills to give by mouth.

Requires Windows XP or Vista, an update may be required for Windows 7.
