About this course

Join us for an evening of CPD on Tuesday 5th December.

Melanomas and sarcoids make up a large portion of equine skin tumours and benign neglect has long been advocated. Andy Fiske Jackson and Mike Hewetson will update us on new therapeutic alternatives that could make successful treatment, even in tricky locations might be feasible. Back pain, lameness, both?

Thilo Pfau is introducing new quantitative, objective assessment methods that will help answering these tricky questions. The evening will conclude with an introduction to mesotherapy as rehabilitation aid by Melanie Perrier. She will also share with her experiences with coil embolization for guttural pouch mycosis in standing horses with us.
