Mud fever is the term given to a serious skin ailment affecting the back of the pastern and heel area of horses and ponies. It occurs often in the winter months and is feared by many horse owners, as there are many causes for its outbreak and it can be difficult to treat.

The healing process can be long and drawn out. In this book Anke Rüsbüldt details how to recognise mud fever, how it can be prevented through correct equine care and management and how to successfully treat the condition when it does occur.

Anke Rüsbüldt is an equine veterinarian and the author of many specialist equine titles.
