The course is suitable for all equine and mixed practice vets aiming to improve their knowledge and skills in the area of the mid- and distal limb and stifle joints.
The speakers will be sharing invaluable tips/tricks and pearls of wisdom with the attendees during the 7 hours of practical sessions in small groups (2 – 4 vets per ultrasound machine) on live horses. Each attendee will be able to hone his/her practical skills at the following practical stations: Machine set-up, foot & pastern, digital flexor tendon sheath, fetlock region, suspensory ligament, flexor tendons & check ligaments, tarsus & tarsal sheath and the stifle joint region.
