About this course

Upper airway disorders in the horse are a common cause of poor performance, often presenting with an abnormal respiratory noise noted by the owner. There are many different options for the management and treatment of these common disorders. In this lecture, Alex Hawkins, Clinician in Equine Surgery at RVC Equine, will provide a brief overview of this topic including some of the more recent advances in this field.
