Equine Behavior Medicine
The Behavioral Medicine Service now offers many services to equine patients: this include biomedical training for horses that need frequent care or those who have developed a phobia of veterinarians; aggression towards humans or other horses; stereotypies (weaving, wind-sucking, etc.); lack of sleep syndrome; anxiety; behavior problems in hand and saddle. We also offer 24-hour video analysis, which can help identify limbs affected by intermittent or subtle lameness, signs of gastric ulcers or neurological signs. Finally, we can design tailor-made programs to preserve both muscular mass and the well-being of horses that must be put to rest in the box. We work closely with the different services of the Equine Hospital.
We offer a consultation service at the CHUV or as outpatient. Do not hesitate to ask your regular vet for referral.
