This practical course is designed for recent graduates or practitioners in mixed practice who wish to improve their knowledge and understanding of how to approach the work up of a lame horse, and how diagnostic analgesic techniques may be used as part of the examination.

The course will combine lectures about diagnostic anaesthetic strategies and how to interpret nerve and joint block results. We’ll also look at how to approach the horse with a multi-limb lameness.

During the practical element of the course you will get an opportunity to practise nerve blocks and intra-articular and intra-synovial injection techniques from different approaches.

The five key things you will learn from this course are:
Recognition of lameness
Understanding of how to approach the investigation of the lame horse
How to interpret the results of nerve blocks and intra-synovial analgesia
Practise nerve blocks and intra-synovial injection techniques on cadaver limbs
How to approach investigation of the horse with multi-limb lameness
