Horses rarely falsify pain and therefore justify a thorough examination to determine the origin of the pain. Arthritis is very common cause of chronic pain.
Symptoms: Variable; pain.
Diagnostics: The diagnostic examination should include a full neurological examination as well as possible radiographic evaluation and blood testing, depending on the organs involved.
Special Notes: In many cases of pain management, a thorough chiropractic examination should also be performed.
