An update on biologics for joint disease: where do we currently stand?

This field is changing and developing rapidly.  It is incumbent on the practitioner to keep up with the latest evidence based medicine.  We will review and talk about biologics for joint therapies, options, new data, shortcomings and will follow with spirited discussion.

Interpretation of lameness with use of sedation: does it really change things?

For decades equine clinicians have been hesitant to sedate horses prior to performing local anesthesia however in fractious horses this can put staff, and clinicians at risk.  We will review the latest evidence that sedation and blocking is possible without great risk of inaccurate information in assessing lameness.  We’ll discuss sedation; when, how much, and what information is out there to help inform the pharmaceutical assisted-lameness examination.
