Course Information

About this course

Now available as a recorded lecture. Please note bookings are only via the website

Having to call your vet to attend to your horse as an emergency is a very stressful experience – not only for you and your horse but also for the attending veterinarians. The talk will guide you through the rapid assessment at the yard, delivery of first aid and initial stabilisation. We will then explain when referral is required and how the decision is made. The second part of the talk will detail what happens when your horse arrives at the hospital and what we can do to help you and your horse to get through this crisis.
