* VAT (= MWST/MOMS/SALES TAX) will only be added for certain UK vets attending courses abroad and for all attendees when attending courses in the UK.
The practical sessions on this course include but are not limited to:
Horses suspected of being affected by equine wobbler or osteoarthritis of the cervical facet joints are regularly seen in equine practice but diagnosing a specific disease with certainty can be challenging. Over the past two decades the equine cervical spine has been extensively researched and advanced imaging modalities like CT and MRI (incl. CT-myelography) have revolutionized diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities available to equine practitioners.
This practical course was designed to provide equine veterinarians with the theoretical and especially the practical skills to competently examine, diagnose and treat horses affected by neck conditions. One of the main goals of this course is to provide practitioners with the knowledge and skills on how to reliably differentiate ataxic horses from animals with front- and hindlimb lameness.
A panel of internationally renowned clinicians who have dedicated a significant proportion of their careers researching, diagnosing and treating horses with neck conditions, will bring a wealth of experience to this course. The following highly-illustrated lectures in English will be held in the mornings:
In the afternoons, the 7 hours of practical small group sessions (2 – 4 vets per ultrasound machine) will give attendees plenty of opportunity to further develop their practical skills on live horses and on equine specimens, under the supervision of the experts. Each attendee will rotate through the following practical stations with live horses and specimens:
The course fee includes lunches, coffee/tea breaks, a wine & cheese reception, extensive electronic course notes and a certificate of attendance. Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available.
