Is a concise, easy-to-follow practical guide to how to deal with a range of equine emergencies likely to be encountered by clinicians both in the UK and abroad.

The Handbook is accompanied by a mobile-optimized website that presents audio, video and text files for quick reprisal via phone or tablet while on-the-go. The website also includes additional colour images that are relevant to specific emergency situations covered in the book.

Canine and Feline Epilepsy Diagnosis and Management 
By Luisa De Risio, Simon Platt
2014 Edition
Epilepsy is one of the most familiar chronic neurological diseases and is a common yet challenging presentation in veterinary surgeries. This book covers seizure pathogenesis, classifications, diagnostic investigations, emergency treatments and longer term treatments, with a large section on pharmacological intervention. Filling a considerable gap in the veterinary literature, it includes tables and charts for quick reference during emergencies. Seizures can be very distressing to animals and owners, yet not all seizures are the result of epilepsy, a neurological condition. This book discusses how to distinguish between epileptic and non-neurological seizures, and provides case studies to illustrate different occurrences of epilepsy.
