Do you worry whether you’re up to date with the current understanding of foot lameness in horses?
The majority of equine forelimb lameness originates from the foot. The introduction of advanced imaging modalities, such as MRI, has added additional information, but also additional confusion to the diagnosis and treatment of these often very challenging cases. What do you do, if a lameness blocks to an abaxial sesamoid nerve block and if there is no conclusive radiographic pathology? This lecture will cover the systematic approach with diagnostic analgesia and the correct choice of imaging modality for different types of foot lameness.
This webinar is designed to give the equine practitioners who deal with lameness an increased understanding about the pathophysiology of foot lameness and the diagnostic techniques that can be used to obtain a timely and accurate diagnosis.
This webinar was part of the Fundamentals of equine practice – lameness series that ran in 2019. The other webinars in this series are:
Tendon injuries – first line treatment to long term management
Shoeing for different conditions
