The Clinical Companion of the Donkey

Clinical Companion to the Donkey

The Clinical Companion of the Donkey is the revised version of The Professional Handbook of the Donkey, which has been the definitive text for clinicians and professionals working around the world in donkey medicine or surgery for over 20 years.

In an easy-to-read and easy-to-navigate format over its 360 pages, this updated paperback includes current and extra information in a bid to improve the health and welfare of donkeys worldwide by sharing knowledge and providing further education.

Without covering the same ground as other excellent textbooks, Clinical Companion of the Donkey concentrates on those differences in the equine species that are specific to the donkey. A new chapter on donkey behaviour has been included, as this is fundamental to understanding this unique animal and the presentation of clinical signs and requirements for handling, nursing and treatment.

Clinical Companion of the Donkey contributors are all employed by or are associated with The Donkey Sanctuary. The content of the textbook is evidence-based or the shared experience of past and present employees representing a vast pool of expertise and knowledge in donkey health and welfare.
