Practical Equine Surgery - Both Days

23 Nov 2017 09:00 - 24 Nov 2017 17:00

This hands-on course will provide equine practitioners with expert tuition on common surgical procedures. The teaching will guide delegates from the initial decision to carry out surgery, through perioperative considerations, before in-depth coverage of surgical techniques including skin grafting, ocular surgery, standing sinus surgery, surgery for angular and flexural limb deformities, neurectomies, desmotomies, and urogenital surgery. The practical sessions will encompass common surgical procedures that can be performed in a practice setting without expensive facilities or instruments.
