Why nonsteroidals let you down - a practical approach to lameness diagnosis and multimodal management

The lectures will focus on a practical approach to lameness diagnosis in the dog. Through the use of video footage and case examples the contribution of muscle and connective tissue in fore and hind limb lameness will be addressed. The lectures will cover how to break the cycle of decline and disuse that follows the blanket application of rest and nonsteroidal therapy in isolation. The course will also consider what rehabilitation or physiotherapy techniques that can be easily introduced into day to day practice.

Key points will include:
- Gait analysis - what can I learn
- Musculoskeletal pain - can I improve my diagnostic skills
- Lameness diagnosis and management - a global approach
- A practical guide to rehabilitation in first opinion practice
