book iconAbout the Course

How do you deal with a recumbent horse?
Is that wound close to or into a joint?
The horse is 10 / 10ths lame- why? What is the problem?
The owner has decided on euthanasia, but does it meet the BEVA guidelines?
How can we ensure a ‘peaceful end’?
Should I suture that wound – if so how?

These are dilemmas that as equine vets we face every day. Join us on this practical course where experienced practitioners will ensure that you can be confident in making clinical decisions whilst sharing the 'art' of equine practice as well as the science.

thinking iconKey Learning Objectives

  • Confidence in good clinical decision making with wounds and euthanasia. 
  • Consolidate practical skills in suturing, imaging, nerve blocking and arthrocentesis. 
  • Identification of the orthopaedic case that requires referral and the ones that can be readily treated on the owner’s yard. 
  • Analyse laboratory results as part of case management.

The best BEVA course so far. Got straight in and hands on with bandaging and casting. Tutors were all brilliant.
