Through years of selective breeding, Miniature horses—standing no more than 34 inches tall—have developed into true scaled–down versions of full–sized horses. However, despite their similarity in appearance to their larger relatives, with respect to veterinary care, Miniatures cannot be viewed simply as smaller versions of full–sized horses. The occurrence, diagnosis, and treatment of many equine diseases is affected by their small size and unique physiological and metabolic demands. This practical, well–researched manual provides Miniature horse owners and veterinarians with the information needed for safe and appropriate treatment. It goes a long way in preventing the devastating mistakes that have, in the past, had undesirable consequences for these little horses.
