This course provides equine practitioners with the knowledge and especially the practical skills to competently and confidently scan the mid-distal front- and hindlimb incl. the stifle joint of the horse.

The speakers will be sharing invaluable tips/tricks and pearls of wisdom with the attendees during the 7 hours of practical sessions in small groups (2 – 4 vets per ultrasound machine) on live horses. Each attendee will be able to hone his/her practical skills at the following practical stations: Machine set-up, foot & pastern, digital flexor tendon sheath, fetlock region, suspensory ligament, a choice of flexor tendons & check ligaments or carpus & carpal sheath, tarsus & tarsal sheath and the stifle joint region.

On the evening of the first day all attendees are invited to attend the wine & cheese reception.
