Ludhiana, October 29

Dr Inderjeet Singh, Vice-Chancellor, Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (GADVASU), today released a book ‘A Practical Approach to Diagnosis and Management of Equine Colic’ authored by Dr Arun Anand and Dr Simrat Sagar Singh of the Department of Veterinary Surgery and Radiology. The VC congratulated the authors and appreciated the efforts put in by the veterinary surgeons of the university. The book has been published by Jaya Publishing House, Delhi.

The authors of the book said colic in horses was a life-threatening problem and if left untreated, the horses succumb to the disease, causing massive economic loss to horse owners and breeders.

The Department of Veterinary Surgery and Radiology, GADVASU, has established an exclusive facility for colic surgery in horses.

The book, which has been dedicated entirely to colic treatment, covers surgical anatomy of equine abdomen. It contains chapters on causes, diagnostic procedures and presurgical assessment of colic in horses. A detailed chapter on medical management followed by exhaustive chapters on surgical management and post-operative care has been included. The book contains over 125 original coloured photographs and illustrations for easy and comprehensive understanding.

The authors explained that this was the first book in the Indian subcontinent dedicated entirely to the management of equine colic and written by Indian authors.

Dr Navdeep Singh, head, Department of Veterinary Surgery and Radiology, said horses from as far as Sri Ganganagar, Rajasthan, had been successfully operated upon for colic at GADVASU and restored to normal-functional ability.

Dr SPS Ghuman, Dean, College of Veterinary Science, also appreciated the efforts and said the book would be valuable to enhance understanding of colic in horses among students and veterinarians.
