Events in January
This brand new course has been created specifically for equine veterinary nurses and is designed to improve skills levels in several key areas of equine care.
Events in February
Horses with neurologic signs are regularly seen in equine practice and diagnosing a specific disease can be challenging. This practical course was designed to provide veterinarians from mixed and equine practice with the theoretical and especially the practical skills to competently examine, diagnose and treat horses affected by such conditions. One of the many goals of this course is to provide equine practitioners with the knowledge and skills on how to reliably differentiate ataxic horses from animals with front- and/or hindlimb lameness. A panel of internationally renowned clinicians who have dedicated a significant proportion of their careers researching, diagnosing and treating horses with spinal ataxia and other neurologic conditions, will bring a wealth of experience to this course.
This two-day practical course has been designed to provide veterinarians from mixed or equine practice with the theoretical and practical background on the care of the neonatal and post-neonatal foal. On the first day the lectures and small group sessions will be focussing on care of the foal in a first opinion setting and on general decision making when to refer a foal. More advanced foal care requiring a hospital setting, will be covered on the second day to provide clinicians with the knowledge and skills of caring for the critically ill foal. The course will be run by two experts in foal care, Professor Pam Wilkins (Univ. of Illinois, USA) and Dr. Emily Haggett (Rossdales, Newmarket, UK) together with the specialists from the Evidensia Specialistdjursjukhuset Helsingborg, who will all bring a wealth of experience to this course.

The use of Laser has become a versatile mainstay of Equine Surgery and is nowadays employed as part of minimally-invasive upper airway surgery, to arthrodese joints, treat urogenital conditions and in general to deal with skin tumors. This 2-day practical course has been developed to provide equine surgeons with the theoretical knowledge and the practical skills of performing all aspects of laser surgery under the supervision of some of the most experienced equine surgeons in the field of laser surgery. Dr. Norm Ducharme (Cornell University, USA), Dr. Brett Woodie (Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital, USA) and Dr. Lars Moen (Bjerke Dyrehospital, Norway) bring a wealth of experience to this course and will train the delegates in small groups.
Events in March
Ultrasonography has become a crucially important diagnostic imaging modality in Equine Orthopaedics and most Equine Practitioners nowadays have access to the necessary equipment. A growing number of equine orthopaedic specialists have furthermore extended the use of ultrasonography creatively to assist with injection techniques and to facilitate minimally invasive surgery. This 2-day practical course has been developed to provide equine and mixed animal practitioners who have experience with ultrasonography, with the theoretical knowledge and the practical skills of performing ultrasound-guided injections and ultrasound-assisted surgical techniques, covering all regions of the musculoskeletal apparatus of the horse. A review of conventional and biologic treatment modalities for orthopaedic conditions will round the course up.
Taking in a tour of the Animal Health Trust, this Regional Meeting will also cover Radiotherapy, Ophthalmology, Laboratory Techniques and Imaging.
Equine Practitioners are regularly confronted with poor performance-related questions, such as: My horse has started to make a noise during exercise and struggles to keep up with the other horses; what do you think is causing it? Do I need to be concerned about teeth grinding? Another vet diagnosed a heart murmur – do I need to worry about it? Evaluating a horse for poor performance can be a daunting task because different conditions may present with similar clinical signs, leaving vets wondering where to start the investigation. This 2-day practical course covers the most common causes of poor performance such as cardiac problems, upper respiratory obstructions, systemic diseases, gastric ulcers, muscle conditions through lectures and practical small-group sessions.
Foal Care 19/03/2015
The course is aimed at new graduates, mixed and equine practitioners without clinic/hospital support who have to deal with some stud work and foals. The course aims to have a very practical approach concentrating on the first opinion situation. The course will run over two days with lectures in the morning and practical sessions in the afternoon. The topics have been selected to cover the normal and the abnormal situations of the peripartum period, with a view to providing the delegate with a basis for dealing with most situations that may arise. All the lectures will be based upon practical experience and practical approaches. The course dinner will be held on the evening of day one, which will feature a Welsh male voice choir and a disco, and is included in the course fee.
This 2-day practical course has been developed for equine veterinarians who already have experience with lameness investigations and provides a critical overview of possible causes of hindlimb lameness, diagnostic anaesthetic strategies and how to interpret nerve and joint block results, via a regio-anatomic approach. Discussions on the upper hindlimb as a cause of lameness (hip joint, pelvic and sacroiliac problems) and on systemic and intra-articular joint therapies will round the course off. All speakers/instructors are internationally renowned in the field of lameness diagnostics and spend a significant proportion of their clinical work investigating complex lameness cases.
