Problems of the respiratory tract - from a persistent cough to exercise-induced bleeding from the lungs - can be challenging and frustrating to horse owners and veterinary surgeons. Not only are respiratory conditions quite common, but they are also often difficult to diagnose and treat.

A valuable guide to respiratory diseases with the emphasis being on preventative care.

This little book introduces the reader to the anatomy of the horses respiratory tract and discusses the diagnostic methods and veterinary treatments commonly used today. Individual chapters are devoted to the upper and lower airways and common diseases of the respiratory tract - COPD (broken wind or heaves), pleuropneumonia (travel sickness), strangles, and 'bleeding'.
