This one day course is designed for those whose case load may not be exclusively equine, but who are required to attend equine emergencies ‘in the field’, whatever the hour and frequently without the option for referral, when swift and decisive action are essential. Our speakers, chosen for their wealth of experience in working ‘at the coal face’, will provide up to date, hands on, practical advice in dealing with emergencies such as equine colic, problems arising in the peri-parturient period and the injured/lame horse, in addition to many other commonly encountered situations. A discussion session during the afternoon will focus on real-life scenarios in which field anaesthesia might play an important role. Whilst consideration of each and every situation which might arise out of hours would be impractical, it is hoped that delegates will move on from this course with renewed confidence and sound strategy, prepared and ready for next time the pager goes off…
BEVA, in conjunction with The Veterinary Defence Society, is holding a one-day seminar on Managing Difficult Situations in Equine Practice.

These workshops are designed for those who, perhaps, do not spend all their professional time working with horses. Previous delegates have ranged from new graduates, wishing to extend their reach with regard to equine practice, right through to senior members who have felt the need to update their knowledge. The subject covers an area, which has caused much concern in recent years, hence the inclusion of a speaker from the Veterinary Defence Society. The practical programme will include examining horses with particular reference to wind, eyes, heart, ageing, flexion tests, conformation, intended use and much more.
