COURSE DESCRIPTION

Equine practitioners working with sports horses are under considerable pressure to keep the horses under their care competing at the highest level at all times. Furthermore, evaluating poorly performing competition horses can be a daunting task because the clinical signs caused by different conditions may be very similar, leaving vets wondering where to start their investigation.

To participate in the On-Location Portion, attendees are required to have first worked through the  corresponding online Lecture Series ‘Sports Horse Medicine & Orthopaedics':

  • If you have already purchased the Lecture Series independently of the On-Location Portion, please contact the office on office@vetpd.com for a voucher code to reduce the price accordingly.

The speakers / instructors on this course are leaders in the field of equine rehabilitation worldwide and will be discussing the following topics interactively with the attendees:

  • Latest Developments in Orthopedic Therapies - Polyacrylamides, Pro-stride, Resveratrol, Stem Cell Therapy, PrP, IRAP etc.
  • A Novel Perspective on Overground Endoscopy
  • Applications for Objective Lameness Evaluation Analysis in Sports Horses
  • New Ways of using Hematology & Biochemistry in Sports Horses
  • Lameness Examination - When things get complicated; Reliability / Repeatability of Blocks, Multiple Site / Limb Lameness
  • Which Heart Murmurs are relevant in Sports Horses
  • Practical Equine Rehabilitation - A review of Available Modalities
  • Exercise Testing - Identifying Subclinical Problems in Sports Horses
  • Contentious Issues in Sports Horse Pre-Purchase Examination
  • Feeding the Competitive Athlete

Day 1 starts at 15:00h with 3 hours of interactive Case-DiscussionsQ&A which will give attendees the unique opportunity to apply what they have learned during Lecture Series in discussion with the world-renowned specialists.  This will then be followed by the obligatory Wine & Cheese Reception allowing for attendees to socialise with colleagues and the speakers/instructors.

On the second day , 7 hours of practical sessions  will allow attendees to further their practical skills on live horses in small groups (2-4 vets per ultrasound ). Each attendee will rotate through the following practical sessions supervised by the specialists:

  • Distal Limb Ultrasound - Attendees to choose area to examine
    • Flexor Tendons & Suspensory Ligament or
    • Digital Flexor Tendon Sheath & Fetlock  or
    • Pastern

The course fee includes, coffee/tea breaks, a wine & cheese reception, lunch and a certificate of attendance. To participate in the On-Location Case-Discussions & Practical Sessions, attendees are required to have first worked through the Lecture Series (included in the price).   Early course registration is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available due to the highly practical nature of this course.
