Lameness: Recognizing And Treating The Horse’s Most Common Ailment PDF. Lameness, one of the most common and most troublesome of all equine ailments, remains the primary reason why horses are unable to fulfill their potential and their riders’ and trainers’ expectations. More preparation time is lost, more competitions are missed, and more careers are prematurely ended because of lameness than any other condition.

This book analyzes the causes, diagnoses, and management of the myriad causes of lameness:

  • Defining and identifying the lame leg; spotting gait abnormalities and non-muscular causes; physical examinations and evaluations; diagnostic tools and other tests; the role of the veterinarian and farrier in pre-purchase examinations.
  • Physical therapies; the applicability of rest, medications, and other veterinary procedures.
  • Hoof conformation and shoeing options.
  • Joint, bone, muscle, and tendon and ligament problems.
  • Neurological, dermatological, and developmental orthopedic causes of lameness.
  • Treatment of specific conditions to the foot, pastern and fetlock, cannon and splint bones, knee, upper foreleg, hock, upper hind leg, and back.
