Vet PD - Advanced Mare Reproduction

30—08—2019 (advanced training) Vet PD - Advanced Mare Reproduction

This practical course is aimed at practitioners with a working knowledge in the field of equine mare reproduction and provides a critical update on the management of mares for natural breeding/ artificial insemination, on different causes that lead to mares being barren and how to investigate and treat these problems (incl.hysteroscopy). The 2nd day will focus on the pregnant mare with foetal sexing, different pregnancy-related problems and peri-partum emergencies (incl. dystocia & retained foetal membranes etc.). The 7 hours of practical / case-based sessions will give attendees plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice on barren and pregnant mares in small groups (2 – 4 attendees per ultrasound machine).

Advanced training in horse ophthalmology

16—11—2019 (advanced training)

Ophthalmology has become increasingly important in equine medicine over the last twenty years. On Saturday the 16th of November 2019, a training event for veterinarians on horse ophthalmology will take place as part of the DVG-Vet Congress in Berlin. Following the varied program (see attached flyer) with well-known German speakers, the founding meeting of the AG Ophthalmologie (AG of the DVG-Fachgruppe Pferdekrankheiten) will take place. It is planned to establish a forum in which colleagues interested in horse ophthalmology and veterinarians actively involved in this field can exchange their opinions and professional experiences and can further their education. Interested veterinarians with a focus on horse ophthalmology are cordially invited to the founding meeting.
