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?

Should I suture that wound – if so how?

These are dilemmas faced by recent graduates every day when out in practice. Join us for this day course where experienced course tutors will reveal the ‘art’ of equine practice as well as the science to help you overcome the dilemmas when faced with an equine emergency. The full programme will be uploaded here shortly.
