Need Horse Sicknesses, issues, etc.
 
I am putting together a free ebook (with my local vets help) to give to shelters so they can hand them out upon adoptions. Each sickness will have symptoms, cause, cure, etc. and so far i have (divided into Internal, Joint & Bone, Other, Hoof care, etc.)

Bots
Botulism
Colic
Cushings
Encepalomy
Endotoxemia
Forage Poisoning
Genetic Brain Disease (GBD)
Hepatitis

Lameness
Pedal osteitis
Upward Fixation of the Knee Cap

Thanks! You don't need to post the symptoms, cure, etc. the vet is helping me with that stuff.

-Founder is a big one I didn't see on the list.
-Also self (or pasture-mate) inflicted injury. (I know that is a broad topic but it is also VERY common.)
-Choke
-Bowed Tendon
-Ring Bone
-Pneumonia
-Scratches
-Equine Herpes (BIG ONE)
-Rabies
-Potomac Horse Fever
-Lyme Disease
-Dehydration

That's all I can think of at the moment.

Eye injuries/uveitis

May want to include "stocking up". Not a sickness, but common and could really scare a newbie horse owner if they don't know what it is or what causes it.

Encephalitis, Encephelomyelitis
Shipping Fever
Laminitis & Founder
Tying up
What to do with one who gets cast in a stall
Maybe a section on vaccines needed in the area & possible reactions

Maybe AHS? African Horse Sickness... It's a biggie for us, but I have been told that some times there is a case somewhere else in the world. It's rare for other countries, but possible.

Salmonella Infection
Heaves(Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)
Azoturia
Blister Beetle Poisoning
Anhidrosis(lack of sweating)

These could be wide spectrum of possibilies, but still applicatible.
