Organisers of BEVA Congress in Birmingham from September 10-13 insist the event has plenty going on for non-vets too.
The broad-ranging programme includes a variety of presentations from vets, but also leading experts in the world of farriery, animal physiotherapy and other non-vets working in equine health care.
This year, an entire day is to devoted to the foot and farriery, and a day exploring the significance of physiotherapy – all led by international specialists.
David Mountford, chief executive of BEVA, said: “We are delighted to have secured some of the world’s most sought-after experts to deliver what we believe to be first-class programmes on the foot, farriery and the role of physiotherapy. The sessions have been carefully structured for the broadest appeal to all who work, or have a specific interest in, these disciplines.”
