About the Author

Pieter H.L Ramzan was raised in Australia's Hunter Valley. After graduating from the University of Sydney in 1994, he worked in the Kimberley region of north-west Australia before moving to the United Kingdom in 1996. A period in first opinion large animal practice in the West Country followed, until in 1998, he joined the racing team at Rossdales, one of the largest equine veterinary facilities in Europe, becoming a partner of the practice in 2005. Piet maintains a busy schedule providing a comprehensive racing veterinary service to some of Newmarket's largest training yards, as well as attending major international Thoroughbred sales. He has published and lectured widely on Thoroughbred orthopaedics, respiratory disease and equine dentistry, and is a past recipient of BEVA's Richard Hartley Clinical Award. Piet's clinical research interest is the early detection and improved management of racehorse orthopaedic injuries.


"... an excellent, singular resource for thoroughbred racehorse problems."
-Jonathan Hale Foreman, DVM, MS, University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine for Doody's Review Service "Razman has consciously created a text based more on evidence than anecdote ... [He] provides a practical and objective source of veterinary information, pertinent to the thoroughbred racehorse, that is accessible not only to the racehorse clinician but also others within the industry, who will find it a useful, if not indispensable, reference work."
-Harriet Scott in European Trainer
"...contains a fairly exhaustive list of conditions relevant to racehorses ... a great quick reference for equine practitioners, especially recent graduates, and should be in the truck of any practitioner who examines and treats racehorses."
