As the proportion of aged horses in the UK and other developing countries continues to grow, geriatric medicine is becoming an increasingly important part of equine veterinary practice. A recent demographic survey in the UK found that 29% of the equine population was aged 15 years or older. Improving healthcare and nutrition combined with owner expectations mean that horses are still being used for competitive or pleasure riding into their mid twenties and beyond. Specialist knowledge of anaesthesia, dentistry and medicine in the older horse is therefore essential to ensure understanding of the geriatric patient as their problems are often multi-factoral.
High quality lectures, presented by internationally renowned speakers, complement hands-on practical sessions with normal horses and clinical cases. The course is suitable for delegates who wish to improve their ultrasound diagnostic skills and learn more about this diagnostic tool from a panel of eminent veterinary surgeons who are renowned in their respective fields of expertise. All delegates will have the opportunity to spend plenty of time putting theoretical knowledge learned in the classroom into practice, under the tutelage of our distinguished speakers.
This informative and practical course will focus entirely on gold standard bandaging. Led by wound expert Georgie Hollis and her team of equine bandaging experts, this course will focus on evidence-based theory associated with bandaging. There will also be a practical session so that delegates can practice what they have learnt in the theory sessions.
This popular one-day equine cardiology course is being offered again in 2016. This is a practical course and covers all the commonly encountered cardiovascular abnormalities in horses.Emphasis is placed on auscultation and hands-on interpretation of clinical findings using horses with cardiac abnormalities brought into the racing school. The course includes over 3 hours of practical case examination and case discussion of horses affected with all of the common cardiac abnormalities that you are likely to encounter in general practice, so please bring suitable clothing and your stethoscope. The course is ideal for equine practitioners and RCVS cardiology certificate candidates.
Delegate numbers for this long-running and highly-popular course are kept small to ensure maximum exposure to case material. Please register early to avoid disappointment as this course always sells out. The programme covers recognition of normal cardiac anatomy, common cardiac abnormalities and measurement of intracardiac dimensions. An introduction to Doppler echocardiography will also be included, with practical tuition in the use of these advanced imaging modalities. The course aims to help vets make maximum use of their ultrasound technology to aid diagnosis and prognosis for horses with cardiac disease, making it particularly valuable to equine practitioners with ultrasound facilities who are considering extending their use into cardiology. It will also be of interest to veterinary surgeons preparing for the RCVS certificate or diploma in cardiology.
This is a 2-day course, consisting of 8 hours of lectures and 8 hours of practical classes, all of which will be held at the Equine Hospital of the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, Easter Bush Veterinary Campus, near Edinburgh. This course is most suitable for delegates who have already attended a standard equine dentistry course and who perform (or would like to perform) a reasonable amount of equine dentistry in their practice.
Delegates attending the meeting will learn how to approach and investigate skin conditions of the horse, they should be able to develop a rational method and understand what diagnostic tests would be of value in diagnosing skin conditions. They will also learn how to perform the relevant diagnostic tests.
