Wednesday, October 14th 7:00 pm-8:00 pm-Equine Emergencies: Be Prepared!


If you work in an equine practice, it's not uncommon to see colics, lacerations, and fractures. Sometimes we see all of them in the same day! Do you know what to have at the ready? Each emergency is different and will require different equipment and diagnostics. This session will cover the most common equine emergencies seen in both referral and ambulatory practice, and what is needed to work them up.
