About this course

Horses with muscle disease may present with a variety of symptoms including weakness, abnormal gaits and exercise intolerance. Damage to muscles can result from nutritional imbalances, toxins and genetic mutations – however, many diseases are complex and remain unexplained. In this lecture, Jenny Reed, Lecturer in Equine Medicine at RVC Equine, will give an overview of muscle disorders and discuss the evidence-based diagnostics available today.

Other lectures in this series:

Wednesday 4th October - Strains and sprains: Tendon and ligament injuries
Wednesday 6th December - Upper airway noise - what does it mean?
Registration commences at 7pm where refreshments will be available. Lecture time 7.30 - 9.00/9.30pm. Late-comers may be refused entry.
