Equine Gastrointestinal Disease TimeOnline

Equine Gastrointestinal Disease TimeOnline

Gastrointestinal medicine is a very common presenting complaint in equine clinical practice; the spectrum of diseases includes the equine acute abdominal, weight loss and diarrhoea.

This course focuses on developing an evidence-based medicine approach to the diagnosis and management of common gastrointestinal disorders of horses; encompassing a revision of relevant physiology and application to pathophysiology.

Past Participant:

Fantastic course with a great tutor! Really relevant to real world with enough detail to be up to date, but not all of the specifics of every study performed. Really applicable information delivered in an easy to understand manner.
Alice Burwell
