Date/Time

Mar 15, 2019 to Mar 16, 2019
7:30 AM until 6:00 PM

Description

Conditions affecting the back, pelvis and sacroiliac region are common in the horse and can cause pain, poor performance and lameness. Over the past decade the axial skeleton has been extensively researched; this new knowledge combined with recently published retrospective studies have shed light on these previously poorly understood problems. This 2-day practical course is suitable for veterinarians from mixed and equine practice who are keen to update their knowledge on the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis and up-to-date therapy of back, pelvic and sacroiliac problems in the horse.

In the mornings the following topics will be covered in well-illustrated lectures and case presentations:
Clinical examination of the back
Anatomy & Imaging of the back
Diagnostic techniques for back conditions
Common conditions of the back

Saddle fit assessment
Sacroiliac disease – Pathophysiology & Diagnosis
