Equine Podiatry


     Andrea E. Floyd, D.V.M.


Published by Elsevier Publishing House, this invaluable text reference by Dr. Floyd will help horsemen, farriers and veterinarians alike in understanding hoof issues. 

This comprehensive text not only covers basic principles of horseshoeing, but also focuses on medical and surgical foot care management. Starting with the anatomy and physiology of the equine foot, this one-of-a-kind book then evaluates the foot, its pathological conditions (including structural, developmental, and traumatic conditions in addition to laminitis), balancing and shoeing the healthy and diseased equine hoof, and ends with a chapter on new directions in equine podiatry, written by cutting-edge researchers in the field.

The book is available through Amazon, and a complete table of contents is available at Elsevier Publishing.
