About the course

Equine medicine is a rapidly evolving facet of veterinary medicine and keeping up to date is extremely tricky. This new lecture only addition to our CPD programme is aimed at highlighting current advances as well as refreshing knowledge in some of the more complex areas of equine internal medicine. With top tips on how to improve your practice, this series of short bite sized lectures covering a wide range of clinically relevant topics will ensure you are providing your patients and clients with the most up to date information. The session is designed to be relaxed and informal and encourage interaction and questions from delegates

The programme will cover tips for approaching the unresponsive pruritis case, updates on recent advances in the aetiology of equine liver disease and a practitioner’s guide to equine keratopathies.

We will also consider the approach to management of headshakers and horses with myopathies as well as how ultrasound can be used as a decision making tool in the equine acute abdomen. There will be a session on practical nutrition of patients with endocrinopathies and a critical review of management strategies for equine metabolic syndrome to ensure you can take an evidence based approach to clinical cases.

This exciting new addition to our CPD programme is structured to be suitable for delegates working towards an RCVS Cert AVP in equine medicine but is also equally useful for those wishing to advance their knowledge and skills in general equine practice at an advanced practitioner level.
