Equine End of Life Practice: Assessing Quality of Life in the Horse

CE Event Information

  • Description:
    To be available for viewing On Demand.

    The horse stands alone as one of the most challenging of species cared for by veterinary professionals. Their size, strength, and intelligence, as well as the depth of their bond with the humans with whom they share their lives require a different level of attunement, attention, and skill - especially at the end of life.

    This first segment of a 4-part series will include perspectives regarding the current thinking on equine quality of life (QOL), with an emphasis on the importance of differentiating QOL from both equine welfare and the concept of dignity. Discussion will include both subjective and objective considerations regarding the horse's basic needs, individual variations, as well as the psychosocial needs of both the horse and horse owner.
