Veterinary science

Veterinary medicine is the branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, disorder and injury in non-human animals. The scope of veterinary medicine is wide, covering all animal species, both domesticated and wild, with a wide range of conditions which can affect different species. This includes medical bioscience, pathobiology and clinical science.

Orthopedic pain in large animals

With the help of the latest advancements in objective movement analysis systems and new methods in identifying pain behaviours, we wish to better understand the connection between irregular movement


We teach a number of different student groups as well as different professional target groups and the general public. Teaching at SLU At SLU, our team mainly teaches veterinary students. The students

Lungeing on hard and soft surfaces: Movement symmetry of trotting horses considered sound by their owners

Lungeing is often part of the clinical lameness examination. The difference in movement symmetry, which is a commonly employed lameness measure, has, however, not been quantified between surfaces.

Lateral movement of the saddle relative to the equine spine in rising and sitting trot on a treadmillSadel

Phenomena such as a gradually sliding saddle onto one side during riding has been observed in lameness investigations and may possibly be linked to the hind limb lameness in the horse. However, it is

Head and pelvic movement asymmetries at trot in riding horses in training and perceived as free from lameness by the owner

Recent studies evaluating horses in training and considered free from lameness by their owners have identified a large proportion of horses with motion asymmetries. However the prevalence, type and

Quantitative assessment of gait parameters in horses: Useful for aiding clinical decision making?

Gait analysis in horses has moved from the laboratory into the outside world enabling researchers and clinicians to make use of quantitative measurements to provide evidence aiding clinical decision

Head, withers and pelvic movement asymmetry and their relative timing in trot in racing Thoroughbreds in training

Horses show compensatory head movement in hindlimb lameness and compensatory pelvis movement in forelimb lameness but little is known about the relationship of withers movement symmetry with head and

Influence of seating styles on head and pelvic vertical movement symmetry in horses ridden at trotLättridning

How the rider influences the horse's movements is important during lameness evaluations that involve riding tests, as well as for riders who want to discover possible lameness in their horse at an

Vertical movement symmetry of the withers in horses with induced forelimb and hindlimb lameness at trot

Objective motion analysis using sensor or camera-based systems is becoming increasingly common as an aid in investigating the lameness of a horse. According to the current standard, the head movement

Comparison of visual lameness scores to gait asymmetry in racing Thoroughbreds during trot in‐hand

The aim of this study was to determine movement asymmetry values compared with expert lameness scores to enable screening for lameness in Thoroughbreds in race training. To this end, inertial

Effect of different head and neck positions on kinematics of elite dressage horses ridden at walk on treadmill

When competing with riding horses, the result is affected by, among other things, how the horse moves in different gaits and how it holds the head and neck. Many riders find it difficult to make the

Head and pelvic movement asymmetry during lungeing in horses with symmetrical movement on the straight

Lungeing is commonly used as part of standard lameness examinations in horses. Knowledge of how lungeing influences motion symmetry in sound horses is needed. The aim of this study was to objectively
