The Equine Formulary is a guide to medicines available for treating horses, so most of the text is an encylopaedia of medicines. It is designed for horse vets, veterinary students, and people who are responsible for several horses. The book is well-illustrated, with both drawings and photographs. There is a lot on how drugs can interact, and the drugs are referred to by their generic name, making it easier to identify them wherever you are. The book deals with diagnostic tests, bandaging, and other clinical aids, as well as drugs, so is a very useful source of information, especially for horse professionals who may need to take emergency decisions before the vet arrives, and for recently qualified vets, or vets who don't treat horses very often.
