"This excellent text has developed well from the previous editions.It is, I suggest, without doubt still an essential addition to thebookcase of any practice that does a significant amount of equinework." (Veterinary Practice, 1 November 2011) "The sixth edition of this classic will prove to be an excellentresource for equine practitioners, veterinary specialist trainees,and students ... Dr. Baxter and his colleagues are to becongratulated on this outstanding book." (Doody's, 15 July2011) "The comprehensiveness of this work is little short ofphenomenal. It is focused, extensively illustrated and would surelyhave no challengers to the title as the bible on equine lameness .. . Adams and Stashak have much to be proud of in this book, asdoes editor Baxter for his substantial input. " (Horsetalk , 23June 2011) "The comprehensiveness of this work is little short ofphenomenal. It is focused, extensively illustrated and would surelyhave no challengers to the title as the bible on equine lameness."(Horsetalk, June 2011) "This book remains a key text for equine clinicians, withparticular strengths being the descriptive anatomy, summaries ofdiagnostic imaging techniques and the clarity of the diagnostictechniques presented, both in the text and on the DVD." (EquineVeterinary Education, May 2011) "The latest version of this classic not only has updatedcontent, but includes many colour photographs and illustrations aswell as an accompanying DVD. The latter is an excellent 'how to...'guide to equine lameness investigation, with excellent sections onperineural and intrasynovial injection techniques, which, in myopinion, is worth half the purchase price all by itself... thisbook remains an asset to all those with an interest in equinelameness." (Veterinary Record, April 2011)
