Title 
Equine Hindlimb Lameness Diagnostics (incl. Objective Lameness Evaluation) & Therapies - A 2-Day Practical Course

Date 
Nov. 8-9, 2019

Location 
Moore Equine Veterinary Centre, 260048A Writing Creek Crescent, Rocky View County, Alberta, Canada (English) T4A 0M9

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 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) and on systemic and intra-articular joint therapies will round the course off. The 7 hours of practical and case-based sessions will give attendees plenty of opportunity to further their practical skills on live horses and limb specimens in small groups (2 4 people per ultrasound machine).
