Approach to Lameness Investigations by Carolin Gerdes. The investigation of lameness is one of the most common procedures performed in equine practice. The aim of this webinar is to review the process of examining horses for lameness and to discuss available techniques using case examples and reviewing relevant research. The lameness work-up can be performed to a varying degree of intensity and detail. This talk will present a practical guide and largely field-based approach to the recognition and diagnosis of lameness. Crucial parts of the lameness assessment such as the gait evaluation both in hand and under saddle, diagnostic local anaesthesia and decision criteria for further diagnostic tests will be discussed in depth.
