For a long time, navicular syndrome was one of the most overdiagnosed conditions of the horse. Of course, it does occur, but newer technologies have helped veterinarians understand that what was once a simple diagnosis is actually one that can involve any number of structures, and that the prognosis for a full recovery is sometimes good. It’s not a diagnosis that should be made lightly – if you read this book, you won’t make that mistake!
