The London Vet Show has launched its most extensive equine programme to date with an additional equine lecture stream and 50% more content than last year.

Philip Ivens
RCVS specialist in equine internal medicine Philip Ivens will be among the equine experts at London Vet Show.

The two-day event will feature three full equine streams with a range of topics to ensure the needs of mixed and equine only vets are met.

Intimate elements

The streams, programmed by the RVC and the BVA in partnership with BEVA, are complemented by the show’s “Meet the professor” equine sessions, where a number of the speakers can have more intimate discussions with a smaller group of delegates.

With 36 sessions in all, topics include:

  • “Strangles – panic on the yard?” by Philip Ivens, RCVS specialist in equine internal medicine
  • “Case based approach to intelligent wound care” by Georgie Hollis, director of Intelligent Wound Care Ltd and Prof Derek Knottenbelt, consultant at Equine Medical Solutions
  • “What more is there to LRT disease then IAD and RAO?” by Scott Pirie, senior lecturer in equine medicine at the University of Edinburgh
