Any book calling itself an ‘atlas’ lives or dies by the quality of its pictures. This book not only lives, it thrives. In addition to pictures showing clinical signs and medical imaging, there are some pictures illustrating how procedures, such as a synoviocentesis, are performed. The book is beautifully presented and easy to navigate. An excellent atlas and will be of great benefit to any practitioner who treats foals.
