- Lameness detection
- Diagnostic analgesia
How confident are you with lameness case management? Can you spot both fore and hindlimb lameness, and detect an improvement following diagnostic analgesia?
This webinar will be entirely on the work up and management of a selection of lameness cases. There will be videos of the horses trotting both in a straight line and on the lunge. We will look at lameness detection and the decision on which block(s) to perform. We will also follow the cases through to conclusion with imaging and treatment. Case discussion will be encouraged.
Why do this course?
Delegates will test their lameness detection skills and compare how they would work up the case compared to the lecturer; discussion will be encouraged! Images will be critiqued and treatment options explored
