About this course

This webinar will go through the various radiographic views and when to use them.We will also show how to ultrasound all sides of the hock with examples of pathology. With more medical treatment options than ever we will discuss when to offer surgical treatments as well as when and what to medicate with.

We will give hints and tips on how to get the most out of your x-rays of the hock and how to image structures like the collateral ligaments.
