Horses with neurologic signs are regularly seen in equine practice and diagnosing a specific disease can be challenging. This practical course is designed to provide vets with the theoretical and practical skills to competently examine, diagnose and treat horses affected by such conditions. One of the main goals is to provide the knowledge and skills on how to reliably differentiate ataxic horses from animals with front and hindlimb lameness. In the mornings, highly-illustrated lectures are presented in English (no translation, but with French moderation). In the afternoons, the 7 hours of practical small group sessions (2–4 vets per ultrasound machine) give the opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses and specimens. The following topics and more will be covered: Cervical fusion surgery; Myelography techniques; CSF collection methods; Cervical facet joint injections; Headshaker blocks.
