Event Description

Course programme (168KB PDF)

Registration will open at 09.30, with the course starting at 10.00. The course will finish at 16.00.

This course will look at the latest issues relating to both exotic disease threats and emerging medical conditions that are of current relevance to UK horses.

The day will kick off with a refresher on several exotic diseases (including AHS, EIA, Glanders and WNV) that have all been considered realistic threats to UK horses in recent years, and will in particular consider how and where from these diseases might arise. There will also be an overview of the latest thinking on endocrine syndromes of the horse (EMS and PPID), followed by an update on recent research related to atypical myopathy and equine grass sickness.

The day will conclude with an overview of equine disease surveillance resources from around the world, that practicing vets can access to keep themselves informed on global disease occurrence.

The five key things delegates will learn from this course are:

  • Updates on several exotic equine diseases (incl. AHS, EIA, Glanders and WNV)
  • The latest information on global occurrence of exotic equine diseases and risks they pose to UK horses
  • Details of surveillance resources available to vets and owners  for monitoring equine disease occurrence
  • Updates on clinical presentation and current recommendations for diagnosis and treatment of PPID and EMS
  • The latest information on diagnosis and prevention of atypical myopathy and equine grass sickness
