Course Description:
A day course to improve decision-making skills in the following emergency scenarios; the colicking horse, the periparturient mare, the recumbent horse, the non-weightbearing lameness, and finally, how to manage wounds. Pre-course online theoretical learning will allow for emphasis on the day to be placed on practical training and case-based discussions. A tour of Liphook Equine Hospital and Laboratory will be available after the course.

Pre-course Online Learning

• Wound assessment (cadaver legs)
• Bandaging and splint placement (live horses)
