COURSE DESCRIPTIONThis practical course has been developed for equine veterinarians who have experience with lameness investigations and provides a critical overview of possible causes of hindlimb lameness, diagnostic anaesthetic strategies and how to interpret nerve and joint block results, via a regio-anatomic approach. Discussions on the upper hindlimb as a cause of lameness (hip joint, pelvic and sacroiliac problems), Objective Lameness Evaluation and on systemic and intra-articular joint therapies will round the course off. All speakers/instructors are internationally renowned in the field of lameness diagnostics and spend a significant proportion of their clinical work investigating complex lameness cases.
