Lameness Detection – Year 2

The emphasis of this module will be on developing the practical ability to detect lameness from dramatic to subtle during the practical days. As four-legged
animals are adept at weight redistribution to compensate for ailments, musculoskeletal pain can appear subtle to the observer however significant for
the animal affected. The student will be comfortable with identifying the location of this discomfort through guided instruction and practical experience.
Lame horses must always be first assessed by a veterinary surgeon and clients must be advised of this.
