Hands-on Equine Cardiology

17 May 2017 08:55 - 17:15

This popular one-day equine cardiology course is being offered again in 2017. This is a practical course and covers all the commonly encountered cardiovascular abnormalities in horses. Emphasis is placed on auscultation and hands-on interpretation of clinical findings using horses with cardiac abnormalities brought into the racing school. The course includes over three hours of practical case examination and case discussion of horses affected with all of the common cardiac abnormalities that you are likely to encounter in general practice, so please bring suitable clothing and your stethoscope. The course is ideal for equine practitioners and RCVS cardiology certificate candidates.
