About this course

Pain has undesirable consequences for a horse’s health and well-being but because horses are prey animals they are very good at masking the symptoms of pain. Kata Veres-Nyeki, Lecturer in Anaesthesia and Analgesia at RVC Equine, will explain how pain can be assessed through a horse’s behaviour and facial expressions, and give practical advice on how owners can detect whether their horse is in pain.

Rose Tallon, Resident in Equine Medicine, will describe the full range of different options for treating pain in horses - it's not just bute! As well as the various drug options available, she will explain how a holistic approach with non-pharmaceutical interventions can be of benefit.
