    Veterinary involvement in equine reproduction can vary markedly depending on the breeding practices employed. When successful, there is a large degree of satisfaction for client and vet in the end result of a healthy foal. However, as we all know, there is large number of variables which, on occasion make this end result frustratingly elusive to realise.
    This book by authors from Canada, Australia and UK gives a thorough source of information on diagnosis and management of all horse breeding. A large number of contributors (predominately from the USA) are able to impart a lot of detail on a wide range reproductive problem. It is split up into eight sections, comprising the normal female reproductive system, female reproductive problems, normal male reproductive system, male reproductive problems, semen collection and evaluation, assisted reproductive techniques, pregnant mare and the post-foaling mare.
    Each contributor writes in their own style, but throughout the book there is a very good reference to allow the reader to easily locate articles for further reading. On the whole the text is backed up by good standard graphs, tables and pictures. The pictures are restricted to black and white only. The text itself is comprehensive and easily readable. It offers the clinician a lot of possible treatment options and a lot of practical advice on how to approach a particular problem and an idea on prognosis for a successful outcome. The section on assisted reproductive techniques gives a good incite into the practical management of an AI programme, and allows for a discussion on embryo transfer.
