Differentiation between alteration in behavior which is the result of pain and that reflecting other behavior is potentially challenging in ridden horses. A ridden horse ethogram has been developed, tested, and combined with a pain score. Nonlame horses generally had lower pain scores than lame...

Trigeminal-nerve-mediated headshaking represents a major welfare challenge for owners and veterinarians and is caused by a low threshold firing of the trigeminal nerve resulting in pain manifested as violent head jerking that often terminates the horse's career and life due to poor quality of life...

Abstract

We report the results of a symposium aimed at identifying validated biomarkers that can be used to complement clinical observations for diagnosis and prognosis of joint injury leading to equine osteoarthritis (OA). Biomarkers might also predict pre-fracture change that could lead to catastrophic...

Abstract

Reason for performing study: Headshaking in horses has been reported to be most commonly due to idiopathic neuropathic facial pain (trigeminal-mediated headshaking). The prevalence of headshaking in horses in the UK is unknown. Objectives: To estimate owner-reported prevalence of headshaking in...

Abstract

Headshaking is a threat to the welfare of affected horses. As seasonal headshaking may be triggered by allergic conditions, this clinical trial investigated whether the second-generation antihistamine cetirizine decreased headshaking. The objective was to assess the clinical effect of cetirizine...
