Events in November
The emphasis of the day is the practical use of instrumentation to obtain good clinical information and to provide treatment strategies for the commonly encountered equine ophthalmic conditions. An informal approach is encouraged with time scheduled for case discussion and practical sessions covering ocular ultrasound and indirect ophthalmoscopy. Aimed at all equine practitioners who wish to refresh their ophthalmic examination skills, this day course would be of particular use to new graduates.
This two-day practical course has been developed for equine veterinarians and mixed animal practitioners who already have experience with lameness investigations and provides a critical review of the current thinking on foot conformation, trimming and shoeing options, combined with an update on foot and pastern conditions, diagnostic anaesthesia strategies and how to interpret distal limb nerve and joint block results. All speakers/instructors are internationally renowned in the field of lameness diagnostics / farriery and spend a significant proportion of their clinical work investigating complex lameness cases.

A requirement for inclusion on the BEVA AI List, this day course will discuss recent changes to artificial insemination in horses. Panel sessions will give delegates the opportunity to discuss any issues in depth with a panel of experts.
This course has been designed to equip the equine clinician with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to make the most of their abilities and ultrasound machine, in the diagnosis and treatment of various equine musculoskeletal conditions affecting the frontlimbs, hindlimbs, pelvis and the back. This course is suitable for vets from an equine or mixed background who are aiming to improve their knowledge and skills in this area, be it as a recent graduate or as a vet with existing experience.
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.
Abnormalities of the axial skeleton are one of the most important sources of lameness in all types of horse and pony. In addition they can be responsible for changes in performance, behavioural problems, and neurological abnormalities. For many years they have been an area of problems much frequented by ‘alternative medicine’ practitioners. With the advent of more advanced imaging modalities, such as scintigraphy and high quality digital radiography, and the continuing research interest in these groups of conditions the veterinary profession is regaining some input into these clinical problems.
Events in February
The day will encompass lectures and small group discussions by experts specialising in research and clinical practice. The day will be of particular interest to veterinary surgeons with an interest in poor performance, lower airway disease and research
The day will also include research presentations, an exercising endoscopy video reading session and delegate case discussions. It will be of particular interest to clinicians involved in any discipline of performance horse work, upper airway surgery and research.
