Issues regarding large animal neurology will be tackled via a dedicated Residents’ Day at this year’s annual symposium of the European Society of Veterinary Neurology in Edinburgh.

Residents’ Day will see international speakers sharing first-hand experience of cases involving equine and bovine nervous systems.

Holger Volk, clinical director and professor of veterinary neurology and neurosurgery at the RVC, said many residents don’t get the necessary exposure to large animal neurology cases during their training, as the focus in most programmes is companion animal neurology.

Residents’ Day on the Thursday, which forms part of the annual symposium from 15 to 17 September, will see international speakers sharing first-hand experience of cases involving equine and bovine nervous systems.

Remarkable leaders

Prof Volk said: “We have remarkable speakers at this year’s symposium, who are leaders in their field.

“The Residents’ Day is one of our key events and will give vets the opportunity to engage in meaningful discussions with our speakers.”

The programme will cover topics such as:

  • equine neurological examinations
  • acquired neuromuscular diseases of horses
  • bovine neurological diseases
