Events in October
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…
The Wales Regional Meeting will debate the issue of equine welfare from a local, national and international perspective. Featuring John McEwan, Director of Equine Sports Science and Medicine for Team GB and Jenny MacGregor MBE, Chairman of the Society for the Welfare of Horses and Ponies.
BEVA, in conjunction with The Veterinary Defence Society, is holding a one-day seminar on Managing Difficult Situations in Equine Practice.
This two-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.
This two-day practical course has been developed for equine veterinarians and mixed animal practitioners and provides a critical overview on the management of mares for natural breeding / artificial insemination, on different causes that lead to mares being barren and how to investigate and treat these problems (incl. hysteroscopy). The 2nd day will focus on the pregnant mare with foetal sexing, different pregnancy-related problems and peri-partum emergencies (incl. dystocia & retained foetal membranes etc.).
This two-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 frontlimb lameness, diagnostic anaesthesia strategies and how to interpret nerve and joint block result.

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.

This evening regional meeting to be held outside Newcastle Upon Tyne covers two topics: Patrick Pollock, from the Weipers Centre Equine Hospital, Glasgow, looks at improvements in equine wound management, and consultant farrier, Jim Ferrie will update us in the latest advances in remedial farriery.
This Regional Meeting features an afternoon practical farriery workshop (max. 18 delegates), providing demonstrations to small groups of farriers and hands-on experience using cadaver limbs or real patients. Registered farriers can attend at the BEVA Member rate. Delegates for the afternoon practical session are automatically registered for the evening Home Counties Regional Meeting. The evening veterinary session comprises lectures on foot balancing, perspectives on trimming and shoeing to straighten and strengthen limbs in foals, and shoeing for foot conditions.
