"Equine Fluid Therapy is a comprehensive textbook created to benefit veterinarians (from interns and residents to practitioners who work in ambulatory or referral practice) who treat critically ill equine patients in a variety of practice settings." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 September 2015) "One of the challenges of any clinically-based textbook is to provide information that is current, accessible and relevant to a broad target readership. Equine Fluid Therapy achieves this challenge and will benefit veterinary students, general practitioners and veterinary specialists. It will be of particular value in equine hospitals where intensive management of patients is undertaken and fluid therapy is undoubtedly used. This excellent reference text supports evidence-based approaches to fluid therapy in horses and will be a valuable addition to any equine practice's library."
