North East Regional Meeting - Naughty or Nice (but in pain): diagnosing the badly behaved horse.

09 Oct 2017 19:00 - 22:15

The badly behaved horse is a challenge that most vets will have been frustrated by during their career. Owners can find dealing with these horses unpleasant and as a result may apply lots of pressure for a definitive diagnosis. Unpicking whether the case is behavioural or pain related can be very difficult, especially since there is significant crossover between symptoms, which can be vague or non-specific.
This Regional Meeting aims to help equine practitioners of all levels unravel these cases by discussing the diagnostic approach, some of the causes of pain leading to bad behaviour, and by providing an update on some of the progress we have made in assessing, understanding and managing badly behaved horses.
The final part of the meeting will include discussion of how we can make our lives easier when we have to treat our most difficult patients.
