Equine Neck Conditions & Practical Neurology for Practitioners

We are proud to announce the next upcoming course of VetPD
in cooperation with the Belgian Equine Practitioners Society

Equine Neck Conditions & Practical Neurology for Practitioners

A 2-Day Practical Course

7 & 8 October 2016


Horses with neurologic signs are regularly seen in equine practice and diagnosing a specific disease can be challenging. This practical course was designed to provide veterinarians from mixed and equine practice with the theoretical and especially the practical skills to competently examine, diagnose and treat horses affected by such conditions. One of the main goals of this course is to provide equine practitioners with the knowledge and skills on how to reliably differentiate ataxic horses from animals with front and hindlimb lameness. A panel of internationally renowned clinicians who have dedicated a significant proportion of their careers researching, diagnosing and treating horses with spinal ataxia and other neurologic conditions, will bring a wealth of experience to this course.

In the afternoons, the 7 hours of practical small group sessions (2 – 4 vets per ultrasound machine) will give attendees plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses and equine specimens, under the supervision of the experts. Each attendee will rotate through the following practical stations with live horses and specimens: Neurologic Examination & CSF Taps; Neck Ultrasound & Facet Joint Injections; Radiography of the Neck/Head; Case Discussions – Neurologic Horses & Interpreting Cervical Radiographs; Guttural Pouch Endoscopy & Nerve Blocks for Headshakers; Cervical Fusion Surgery Demonstration. At the end of Day 1 a demonstration on how to perform a myelogram will be given by the instructors.
