May 2016 Educational Seminar Recap: Lameness Exam

Posted on June 21, 2016 by Katie Irvine | 0 comments

Last month, The Carousel Horse, in partnership with Harmony Equine Veterinary Services, welcomed Dr. Earl Gaughan, DVM of Merck Animal Health, to present an educational seminar on lameness to the local equestrian community.

With a packed house, Dr. Gaughan shared his extensive expertise on identifying and treating lameness issues. His presentation covered:
• Diagnostic review between client and veterinarian
• Elements of a soundness exam
• Flexion testing
• Palpation exam
• Use of technology in identifying issues and treatment

Dr. Gaughan was a wealth of knowledge, and we had a very active audience for the Q&A session. Check out the video clips and photos from the educational event.

The Carousel Horse will be hosting more educational events this year. Be sure to check our Events Calendar for more information – and follow us on social media for details as they become available.
