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. Your input could help improve veterinary understanding of pain in horses and how the veterinary profession can better help horse owners. To take part please visit www.surveymonkey.com and complete the short survey.
