About this course

Managing and non‐weight bearing horse can be stressful. This webinar provides the basis for successful examination, triage and management of equine orthopaedic emergencies in the field. This webinar is aimed at new graduates, but also serves a useful refresher for more experienced equine veterinary surgeons

This webinar was part of the Fundamentals of equine practice – emergency series that ran in 2019. The other webinars in this series are:

How to perform emergency tracheostomy, chest drain placement, ligation of the common carotid artery and manage castration complications
First aid and resuscitation of the sick neonatal foal
Decision making with a horse with colic

A convenient and flexible way to earn some CPD hours without leaving home is to select webinars to view from our extensive library of recorded webinars. They are great value for busy practitioners seeking quality CPD at a time of their choice. Participants will receive a handout (slides and/or notes) to support their viewing session and a CPD certificate.
Participants gain access to the webinar for two weeks which allows them to view it at their leisure and convenience as well as review aspects as needed to enhance their learning.
