About this course

Familiarise yourself with the most recent diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to tendon injuries in the horse.

Tendon injuries remain one of the most common orthopaedic injuries in the athletic horse. The most frequently encountered injuries affect the weight‐bearing tendons of the distal forelimb. This webinar covers aspects of diagnosis and management most relevant to the equine practitioner.

The aim of this webinar is to optimise the delegate’s approach to this common disease with a view of expanding their diagnostic potential and selecting rational evidence‐based treatment strategies.

It will address important aspects of the clinical examination and the use of ultrasonography, in particular with reference to additional techniques that can be applied using the same ultrasound equipment that is available to practitioners, such as off‐incidence and Doppler imaging. The second half of the webinar covesr therapeutic approaches with the strongest scientific evidence which will include optimising rehabilitation protocols for successful return to athletic activity.

This webinar was part of the Fundamentals of equine practice – lameness series that ran in 2019. The other webinars in this series are:

Diagnosis and management of common foot conditions
