BEVA Veterinary Management of the Geriatric Horse
Slad Lane, Speen
As the proportion of aged horses in the UK and other developing countries continues to grow, geriatric medicine is becoming an increasingly important part of equine veterinary practice. A recent demographic survey in the UK found that 29% of the equine population was aged 15 years or older.
Improving healthcare and nutrition combined with owner expectations mean that horses are still being used for competitive or pleasure riding into their mid twenties and beyond. Specialist knowledge of anaesthesia, dentistry and medicine in the older horse is therefore essential to ensure understanding of the geriatric patient as their problems are often multi-factoral.
This course will present up to date information specific to the older equine and cover areas of frequent client concern such as weight loss, lameness and the long term prognosis for common diseases. Delegates are encouraged to bring along cases for the discussion part of the meeting when all speakers will be available. The speakers will also be sharing some of their more challenging cases and will be on hand for individual questions.
