Under the skin: Links between skin disease and behaviour issues in the horse



Presented by Dr Amber Batson

Amber will explore how the skin, as one of the largest organs in the equine body, can influence emotional responses, in part due to its direct links with the gut and immune system. Many skin diseases are associated with significant inflammation and intense itchiness, and Amber will explain how these can affect behaviour. She will discuss important issues such as how we can recognise skin disease as a potential part of a behaviour case, and what tools a vet might use to use to make a diagnosis or assess the relevance of skin disease to a case. At the end of the webinar, Amber will present case studies involving horses with skin disease.
