    Default Equine drug reference books?

    Is there such a thing (or something similar) to a Physician Desk Reference for equine drugs? Or, does anyone have any suggestions for a reference book for equine drugs? I've been finding myself wishing I had a reference to look up uses, side effects, interactions, etc on different drugs and I'd prefer to have a professional book versus internet. Thanks!!

    I have an older book called "Concise Guide to Medications and Supplements for Horses" by David W. Ramey. It was published in 1996, so is out-of-date but perhaps there's an more recent edition. It's not as clinical (or professional) as the Physician's Reference, but has useful information on what a particular drug is, why it's used, precautions, and side effects.

    Not just equine, but Google Merck Veterinary Manual. There's a chapter on Pharmacology.
