Did you know there is a commonly held belief that if a stable has a half-door this will give the horse enough fresh air? It does not. Or what about the fact that every year there are up to 8000 new acute cases of laminitis, and as many as 12,000 suffering the long-term chronic effects of the disease. Do you know how to prevent it?

Expensive veterinary bills can hit any owner at any time, even the most experienced and caring owners can be caught unawares. In reality, though, the vast majority of call-outs involve the same problems, time and time again and furthermore, these are problems that are preventable. So the key question is: 'What are they?' This book tells you and, even more importantly, it tells you how to avoid them. Armed with the commonsense advice in this book, you could save yourself much heartache and your horse much suffering. Moreover, your horse and your bank balance will be healthier as a result.
