We regret that this meeting is cancelled due to low numbers
This two-day practical course has been developed for equine veterinarians who already have some experience with lameness investigations and provides a critical overview of possible causes of frontlimb lameness, diagnostic anaesthesia strategies and how to interpret nerve and joint block results. Discussions on foot conformation, advanced imaging modalities, regenerative therapies and multisite lamenesses will round the course off. All speakers/instructors are internationally renowned in the field of lameness diagnostics spend a significant proportion of their clinical work investigating complex lameness cases.
This workshop is designed to provide practical instruction in the technique of obtaining and interpreting ultrasonograms of the distal limb of the horse. The workshop is aimed at new graduates and those wishing to refresh their skills. The course covers the basics of ultrasonography, the ultrasonographic anatomy, scanning of the superficial flexor tendon, deep digital flexor tendon, palmar/plantar annular ligament, suspensory ligament and the fetlock region and includes over 2 hours of “hands on” practical instruction with delegates split into small informal groups.
A practical course designed to provide veterinarians from mixed or equine practice with the theoretical and especially the practical skills to competently examine, diagnose and treat horses affected by such conditions.
A course for veterinarians from mixed and equine practice who are keen to update their knowledge on the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis and up-to-date therapy of back, pelvic and sacroiliac problems in the horse.
The meeting provides a timely review of the methods of diagnosing and treating wobblers syndrome in horses. Jonathan Anderson will discuss the diagnostic approach to wobblers, with David Lloyd providing an overview of treatment options including surgical management.
We are all faced with the dilemma of dealing with the acute non-weight bearing horse. This meeting is designed to give you the most up-to-date and detailed information on how best to manage these challenging cases. The aim is to promote discussion of those tricky cases, how best to deal with these in an emergency and what is the best protocol for a definitive diagnosis and restore them to soundness. Come and share your thoughts.
This 2-day course, consisting of two mornings of lectures and full afternoons of practicals, is suited to veterinarians in equine or mixed practice attending horses with dental disease. Many of the 700+ veterinarians who have undertaken the course previously have reported an increase in their interest, expertise and turnover of equine dental cases subsequently. The course has been restructured to align it with the proposed RCVS Cert AVP “C” modules 1 and 2 in equine dentistry, but the course will be equally useful for those wishing to refresh their knowledge but not pursuing further qualifications.
This two-day practical course has been developed for equine practitioners who already have some 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.
Come share your expertise and learn about the important roles for veterinarians to improve working equid health and welfare in communities that rely on them.
