How do you know when your horse is in pain? We all want our horses to remain in tip-top condition, but sometimes detecting discomfort isn’t always straightforward. Help keep horses pain-free by completing this short survey

Chestnut horseIt isn’t always easy to identify when your horse is in pain or discomfort and when treatment is needed.

Research shows that considerable improvement in the pain recognition of small animals and humans has been made in recent years, but that of horses has lagged behind.1 As such, Chanelle Animal Health is asking horse owners from across the country to tell them how they recognise pain in their horses.

This will help improve veterinary understanding of pain in horses and how the veterinary profession can better help horse owners. To have your say and join the hundreds of owners that have already completed the short survey, visit http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/QF7HJB9 and Chanelle Animal Health know how you recognise pain in your horse.
