It updates the previous edition and provides more detail and more in-depth subjects than any other book on the subject I am aware of.
Like the first edition, this second is intended as a comprehensive reference focused on reproduction; but in acknowledgement of the fact that young equine vets need to be knowledgeable in other areas as well, the scope has been expanded and now includes coverage of topics pertaining to radiograph pre-sale and examination of the upper respiratory system with endoscopy.
