La afición al mundo del caballo se extiende cada vez más por nuestro país, constituyéndose en la actualidad en un importante sector de gran potencial económico. Cualquier relación con el caballo implica poseer conocimientos básicos de su anatomía, fisiología, morfología y patología entre otras múltiples materias, tanto si el objetivo es dedicarse a la profesión de Auxiliar Veterinario Equino como si es por pura afición. Este Manual del Auxiliar Veterinario Equino aporta conceptos de gran ayuda tanto a aquellos que decidan orientar su vida profesional a este campo de la medicina, como a quienes deseen disfrutar con su simple lectura. Dos son pues los objetivos principales de la obra. El primero es divulgar conocimientos básicos sobre el caballo que nos permitan detectar anomalías en su comportamiento, para reconocer determinadas patologías y facilitar así al Veterinario, y en colaboración con él, el diagnóstico y tratamiento de las mismas. El segundo y no menos importante, es que el usuario reconozca sus propias limitaciones, acudiendo al Veterinario como único profesional capacitado para resolver las patologías de nuestro caballo, evitando poner en peligro la vida del animal. Sólo así, lograremos el estado de bienestar que merecen nuestros amigos equinos, tornando más placentera y agradable nuestra relación con este noble y bello animal.
