The spotlight is on lameness in the latest free “EquineEd” lecture presented by the University of Saskatchewan’s Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM).

“Lambness in the Horse’s Foot and Lower Limbs” is presented by Dr. Nathalie Reisbig, VetMed, MS, PhD, who will discuss common lameness problems that affect the horse’s foot and lower extremities. She will also discuss diagnostic tools — including MRI for standing horses — that help veterinarians diagnose challenging cases of equine lameness.

WCVM’s series of equine health seminars is open to anyone in the equine community. There is no cost to participate, but those who want to participate are requested to register in advance.

Topics of upcoming EquineEd talks include equine muscle diseases, skin diseases and parasites.

” Register for Lameness in the horse’s foot and lower limbs on November 8 from 7 p.m. (CST).
