VetPD: Equine Hindlimb Lameness Diagnostics (incl. Objective Gait Analysis) & Therapies – A 2-Day Practical Course

September 28, 2018 - September 29, 2018

Objective Evaluation Instructor: Dr. Kevin Keegan

This 2-day 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 anesthetic 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 gait analysis 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.
