Equine Hindlimb Lameness (incl. Objective Gait Analysis) and Therapies

In conjunction with:

Course Description
Developed for equine veterinarians who have experience with lameness investigations, this practical course provides a critical overview of possible causes of hindlimb lameness, diagnostic anesthetic strategies and how to interpret nerve and joint block results, via a regio-anatomic approach.  Discussion on the upper hindlimb as a cause of lameness (hip joint, pelvic and sacroiliac problems) and on system and intra-articular joint therapies will round the course off.  The seven (7) hours of practical and case-based sessions will give attendes plenty of opportunity to further their practical skills on live horses and limb specimens in small groups (2-3 people per ultrasound machine).
