Luneburg, Germany Cadmos Verlag 2003 3861279061 / 9783861279068 First English Edition Hardcover New in New dust jacket 
Cover is glazed boards. DJ is as new; still in publisher's shrinkwrap. Black endpapers. Originally published in German, translated by Desiree Gerber. Pages are clean and tight; this is a NEW book. Extensively illustrated with color photos and drawings. Chapters are: Dentistry for Horses; Horse's Teeth; Construction and Function of the Teeth and Their Surroundings; Diseases of the Teeth and Mouth; Examination of the Teeth and Mouth--When, How and Why? ; Case Studies; Key Words for the Diagnosis of Mouth and Teeth Problems. Equine dentistry is frequently under valued in diagnosis and treatment. A horse w/ severe enough dental problems can end up having difficulties bending, collecting, jumping, etc. ; we look for the problems anywhere but in the mouth. Having knowledge of when and how to check your horse's teeth [which grow throughout their lifetimes, unlike humans], can be a valuable aid in finding and fixing problems. When my horse gets a hook or uneven in his teeth he is less likely to come round and through and move as smoothly as normal; having his teeth taken care fixes this problem, almost like magic! And since horses' physiologies are designed to be constantly eating, whether it's the grain humans provide, or the roughage we give them or they find outside or in the wild, it becomes even more readily apparent how important to their overall health well maintained and cared for teeth become. ; Color Illustrations; 6 3/4 x 9 3/4; 126 pages
