Course Description

 

This comprehensive one-day course will provide you with the skills for advancing your diagnostic approach to the lame horse beyond a palmar digital nerve block (although we can hone your technique for that too!). This interactive workshop focuses on examination and diagnostic approach to the lame horse using a comination of comprehensive lectures , collaborative case discussion and hands-on practical sessions.

 

Lectures will focus on: 

 

  • Clinical examination of the lame horse: how much does it tell us?

  • Dynamic assessment of the lame horse and the role of manipulative tests

  • Indications for diagnostic anaesthesia (including mechanisms of action/contraindications)

  • An update on diagnostic anaesthesia of the foot and proximal  metacarpus/ metatarsus

  • Introduction to diagnostic anaesthesia of the upper limb

 

Case discussions with course tutors will focus on collaborative dialogue of clinical cases illustrated by videos and will incorporate many of the challenges associated with lameness evaluation.

There will also be an opportunity to perfect a variety of peri-neural and intra-articular blocks in the fully interactive hands-on wet-lab session.

 

Speakers:

  

Ellen Singer BA DVM DVSc DipACVS/ECVS MRCVS

Luis Rubio Martinez DVM DVSc PhD DipACVS DipECVS DipACVSMR MRCVS

Alison Talbot BVM&S CertEP CertES(Orth) DipACVSMR MRCVS

 

This workshop is structured to be suitable for delegates working towards an RCVS CertAVP at all module levels but is equally useful for those wishing to refresh their knowledge and skills in equine lameness, or for those who would like to take on a more active role in lameness diagnosis in their practice. This course is also designed as a clinical refresher for those equine vets returning to diagnostic lameness evaluations after a career break.
