About this course

We encounter acute and chronic pain in equine practice every day. Are you up to date with the current pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatment options? Do you think you could improve your ability to assess pain in equine patients?

This course aims to equip the participants with current knowledge on equine pain and its assessment. The course will then explore the different treatment options along with their advantages and disadvantages. Opioid use in equines and new approaches to locoregional anaesthesia will be reviewed. Ancillary therapies and other pain management modalities such as acupuncture will be explored. Case examples will be used to provide practical examples of equine pain medicine.

Why do this course?
Refresh your equine pain management knowledge and get up to date on new research on this area. Start adding new options in your pain plans the next day!

The webinars for this course will be pre-recorded and can be viewed as recorded versions throughout the course. A live Q&A session with the tutor will run on the following dates at 12.30pm London time.
