The British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) has organised an interactive clinical workshop to help equine vets get to grips with the recent changes, challenges and contentious issues surrounding the pre-purchase examination (PPE).

What is more, the event will be led by those involved with implementing the certificate changes. Speakers Malcolm Morley, Frederic Barrelet, Ian Camm, David Green, Liam Kearns and Tim Mair will be covering:

  • Radiography and the PPE
  • Insurance and the PPE
  • What’s different about vetting the thoroughbred racehorse?
  • What’s different about vetting the high value competition horse?
  • Contentious aspects of the PPE

Delegates will also have the chance to hear Philip Batty, former doctor for Manchester City Football Club, who will look at how the PPE of a premiership footballer compares to that of a top equine athlete, as well as revealing some stories from behind the scenes at Manchester Stadium.

Course fees are £200 for BEVA members, £295 for non-members and £80 for BEVA student members. Delegates will receive reduced accommodation costs at the Days Inn Manchester, subject to availability.
