It isn’t always easy for owners to identify when their horse is in pain or discomfort and when treatment is needed.

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

Chanelle Animal Health is inviting horse owners from across the country to tell them how they recognise pain in their horses. This will help to 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 let us know how you recognise pain in your horse.
