Let sleeping ponies lie – sleep and sleep disorders in horses



Presented by Gemma Pearson.

Dr Gemma Pearson, RCVS specialist in Veterinary Behavioural Medicine (Equine), will explore what we know about normal and abnormal sleep in horses, and its importance for welfare. She will then discuss the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders in horses, including sleep deprivation collapse. At the end of the webinar, Gemma will discuss real-life case studies involving horses who have experienced sleep disorders.

The aim of these webinars is to provide student, trainee and registered Clinical Animal Behaviourists with evidence-based training to develop their understanding of specific medical conditions and how they can impact on the horse’s behaviour, both in terms of the direct physical/behavioural impact, but also how having the condition can affect other areas of the horse’s life.

This webinar may also be useful to other equine professionals, and anyone with an interest in equine behaviour.
