The Clinical Companion of Donkey Dentistry is an easy reference book for professionals produced as part of a series of specialist books that will compliment The Clinical Companion of the Donkey. It enables us to share our vast knowledge and experience to improve the health and welfare of donkeys globally.

Following on from the publication of The Clinical Companion of the Donkey, we plan to produce a series of in-depth specialist handbooks which will complement the handbook.

This book is intended as a guide to the anatomical features of the head and oral cavity of the donkey, to offer a greater understanding of the oral and dental disorders that may affect these animals throughout their life, and how to correctly examine, diagnose, prevent and/or treat pathological situations.

Dentistry is the first topic to be published in this series, and we consider it to be an area which is extremely important to the health and welfare of donkeys globally, while being misunderstood and undervalued by many communities.

This book allows us to share our vast knowledge and experience in donkey specific dentistry and has been produced as an easy reference and well-illustrated book, which we believe will not only increase awareness, but also the confidence of professionals in carrying out dental care and treatment in donkeys.

It comes with a handy list of definitions of the common dental disorders affecting donkeys.
