College’s sixth annual Healthy Horses Conference is April 27
“The University of Florida is dedicated to improving owner education,” said Amanda House, D.V.M., conference coordinator. “This conference is a wonderful opportunity to see our hospital facility and meet veterinarians from all of our services.”
House, a clinical assistant professor of large animal clinical sciences at UF, will lead an interactive discussion about horse health myths. Other presenters, predominantly board-certified UF faculty members, will cover topics such as fly control, hay selection, equine pythiosis, lameness, horses with anhydrosis (known as non-sweaters) and subfertile mares. Attendees will receive brief summaries of all lectures.
An equine conformation and painted horse demonstration illustrating equine anatomy will be presented, along with live high-speed treadmill demonstrations and tours of the UF Large Animal Hospital.
Registration is limited. For more information, visit www.conferences.dce.ufl.edu/equine or call Andy Campbell at the UF Department of Conferences at 352-294-0847.
