Lecture on Worrisome Equine Wobbling Scheduled

The presentation will cover what owners should do if they think their horse might be neurologic and more.

On March 5, the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine (Penn Vet) will present "Worrisome Wobbling: What to do for the Neurologic Horse." The lecture is part of the First Tuesdays Lecture Series at Penn Vet’s New Bolton Center in Kennett Square, Pa. The series offers the public open lectures on equine topics, at no charge, on the first Tuesday of each month.

The March 5 lecture will be presented in New Bolton Center’s Alumni Hall by Amy Johnson, DVM, Dipl. ACVIM. Johnson is one of only a handful of veterinarians in the world board-certified in both large animal internal medicine and neurology. She is an assistant professor of medicine and neurology at Penn Vet.

The presentation will focus on typical signs of disorders in the nervous system of the horse and what owners should do if they think their horse might be neurologic. "I will be sharing several case studies and discussing the types of diagnostic tests that we perform on neurologic patients at New Bolton Center," Johnson said. "Simply treating the horse for EPM may not always be the right thing to do, and I will talk about why."

The First Tuesday Lecture Series offers faculty and clinicians at New Bolton Center an opportunity to share current information on topics of interest and relevance to horse owners and caregivers throughout the region. Upcoming lecture topics include drug research and testing (April) and the Penn Vet Podologic Museum (May). For a complete list of scheduled lectures visit
