A Conversation about Lameness Workups

In our latest podcast we chat about why lameness investigations are so important and what exactly in involved when your vet mentions a lameness work up.

Liz Somerville talks to Hugh Somerville MRCVS to discuss how we identify where the pain is coming from, using nerve and joint blocks and what other options are available to help us diagnose the cause of their lameness.  

Answering the questions:

  • What does a lameness investigation involve?
  • What does the lameness grading system mean?
  • What are nerve and joint blocks?
