The Ultrasound of the Mid-Distal Limb for Equine Practitioners course has been designed to equip Equine Clinicians with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to make the most of their abilities and ultrasound machine, in the diagnosis and treatment of equine musculoskeletal conditions affecting the mid and distal frontlimb and hindlimb. This course is suitable for vets from an equine or mixed animal background who are aiming to improve their knowledge and skills in this area, be it as a recent graduate or as a vet with existing experience. There will be plenty of opportunity for attendees to put theory into practice in small groups (2 – 4 vets per ultrasound machine) on live horses during the 8 hours of practical sessions. Each attendee will rotate through the following practical stations: Foot & pastern, digital flexor tendon sheath, fetlock region, flexor tendons & check ligaments, suspensory ligament, tarsus & tarsal sheath and carpus & carpal sheath.
