This newest book by Dr. Hiltrud Strasser completes her series on the most pressing lameness problems in domestic horses. It addresses the so-called "navicular syndrome", also variously diagnosed as "heel pain syndrome", "inflammation of the navicular bursa", "coffin joint inflammation", and a number of other terms around the world.
This book is intended to provide the reader with the foundation for understanding disease and the possibilities for healing. It is written for the non-veterinarian horse owner. This, of course, does not mean it will not make an interesting read for anyone else.
