'The eagerly awaited updated version of The Equine Formulary has arrived, and the already decent book has been improved. it's author, Professor Derek Knottenbelt, is a world-renowned expert on equine medicine, and particularly for his role in preparing students for life in equine veterinary practise. His vast experience and aptitude for making things easy to understand shine through in this book.
The book is well orgabised and the contents pages are well set out... the bulk of the text is an exhaustive index of medicine. The Plethora of entries is a comforting reminder of the relatively large number of drugs that we have available for use. These are helpfully catergorized by use or action, aiding drug comparisons and therefore selection of the best remedy... this, I believe, will be the essential in-car reference guide for equine veterianry surgeons. it is certainly a must-have book for all recently qualified equine practioners, and those veterianarians who are seeing horses infrequently within the mixed practise setting.'
