Endocrinology plays an integral role in the responses of an animal to information or changes in the environment – it helps the animal to survive by operating vital metabolic processes. Horses suffer from all kinds of ailments as a result of the endocrine glands not functioning correctly and often these problems can be fatal if they go untreated.


Information on equine endocrinology and related diseases is currently hard to find – the information tends to be in the form of journal articles and case studies, or within huge reference books. A lot of work has been carried out by animal scientists in this field, but this has, so far, not effectively reached equine vets and veterinary students.


This book would be the first comprehensive manual on equine endocrinology and all equine endocrine diseases aimed at the veterinary practitioner and student. It will be divided up into the major areas e.g. thyroid gland, metabolism, female reproduction, and each chapter will have key points, ranges of hormone levels and how to measure/validate these, descriptions and case studies, disorders, and full references.
