Dr. McIlwraith's Joint Disease in the Horse, 2nd Edition is the only book to give you a full account of equine joint disease, combining a thorough, up-to-date survey of scientific advances with a practical guide to both medical and surgical treatments. With contributions from nationally and internationally recognized pioneers in the field, this groundbreaking text offers an overview of joint structure and function and translates the latest information on basic joint pathobiology into practical application for the clinician. Step-by-step guidance on injection techniques and medications, along with a survey of practical arthroscopic surgery and developments, make it a truly indispensable reference for all equine veterinarians treating sports and racing horses.


  • Offers unprecedented, state-of-the-art coverage of the pathology, pathogenesis, and clinical diagnosis of traumatic and degenerative joint disease.
  • Describes the general principles of joint pathobiology providing the background to evaluate and interpret the diagnostic and surgical aspects of disease.
  • Explores treatments for traumatic arthritis and osteoarthritis and other joint entities, offering users a broad range of options and up-to-date recommendations for problematic decisions.
  • Discusses current research providing insight for difficult cases and delineates the directions in which future arthritis research is headed.
  • Includes over 325 photographs and line drawings.
  • Provides an overview of arthroscopic surgery for the acute injury, and the results, including fragment removal, fragment fixation and synovectomy.
