Equine Endocrinology

This book provides a practical, clinical approach to diagnosing, treating, and managing endocrine diseases in the horse. Each chapter uses the same structure to form a user-friendly tool of information and advice on aetiology, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, diagnosis and treatment for each endocrine disorder.

The book covers:

  • diseases of the thyroid and parathyroid glands;
  • diseases of the hypothalamo-pituitary-thyroid and hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenocortical axes;
  • diseases of the endocrine pancreas;
  • hyperlipaemia and lipid metabolism disorders; and
  • diseases of the female and male reproductive systems.

Also including material on additional endocrinopathies such as diabetes and pheochromocytoma, this book is dedicated to the fast-moving field of equine endocrinology. Written by international experts in Australia and the USA, it collates their insights and experience into approaches that prove invaluable for general equine practitioners.
