Dr. Christine Fuchs will be talking about the super interesting and super important topic ´sleep deprivation in horses´. And let´s be honest – sleep deprivation is still not too far up on our own differential diagnosis list, if we are talking about grumpy horses or performance loss, right?
Well, we are pretty sure, Christine is going to change our point of view – being an internationally known expert with her doctoral thesis (Ludwig-Maximilian-University of Munich, Germany) on narcolepsy and REM sleep deficiency in horses and a ton of experience in this field.
After doing her vet studies at the University of Giessen from 2002 – 2008, Christine was working in several reputable Equine Clinics until 2018, before she came to Tierklinik Lüsche in 2019.
Besides being a certified Animal Chiropractor (IVCA, 2011) and Animal Acupuncturist (2021), Christine is also approved by the German Board as Equine Specialist (2012) and FEI permitted treating Vet (2013).
