Get evidence-based guidelines to keeping athletic horses healthy and physically fit! Equine Sports Medicine & Surgery, 3rd Edition provides a comprehensive guide to exercise physiology and training within a clinical context, along with a detailed review of all diseases affecting horses used in racing and competition. Not only does this text discuss the physiological responses of each body system to exercise, but it covers nutritional support, the prevention of exercise-induced disorders and lameness, and modification of training regimens. New to this edition are topics such as drug effects on performance and the use of cloud-based technologies for monitoring performance. Written by an expert team of international authors led by Dr.Kenneth W. Hinchcliff, this authoritative, all-in-one resource is also available as an eBook on Expert Consult.

New to this edition:
- NEW! New chapters in this edition include:
History of Equine Exercise Physiology
Farriery and Shoeing of the Equine Athlete
Transportation of Athletic Horses
Investigating Causes of Death During Exercise
Behaviour and Behavioural Abnormalities in Horses Used for Racing and Competition
Welfare of Horses Used in Racing and Competition
The Connected Horse on innovative, cloud-based technologies used to monitor horses during racing/competition and training
Track and Course Design
Principles of Regulation of Drug Use in Competition Horses
Detection of Drug Use in Performance Horses
Drug Effects on Performance
Epidemiology and Control of Infectious Diseases in Populations of Equine Athletes

Key Features:
- Comprehensive coverage is based on sound research and evidence-based practice, and provides an understanding of the physiologic processes underlying the responses of horses to exercise and physical conditioning, from musculoskeletal and respiratory disorders to nutrition and physical rehabilitation.
- International perspective on equine athletics includes guidelines pertinent to different geographic areas and racing jurisdictions.
- Complementary and alternative therapies are explored, as well as physical therapy and chiropractic therapy for athletic horses.
- Coverage of abnormalities of the upper airway is now divided into two chapters: Disease of the Nasopharynx and Diseases of the Larynx and Trachea.
- Coverage of diseases of the heart is divided into two chapters: Arrhythmias in Equine Athletes and Structural Heart Disease of Equine Athletes.
- Nearly 900 drawings and clinical photos depict equine anatomy, testing, and treatment scenarios.
- High-quality artwork includes new radiographic, ultrasonographic, CAT scan, and MRI images to aid understanding and diagnosis.
- Expert Consult website includes a fully searchable version of the entire text with each new print purchase.
