Slovakia: International Veterinary Endurance Conference

August 28 2016

An International Veterinary Endurance Conference will take place in Samorin, Slovakia on Wednesday 14 September, just before the World Endurance Championships that will start on 18 September.  
The topics include presentations by some of the foremost experts in endurance veterinary science, and include genetics, training, clinical science, pathophysiology and physiotherapy. There are also presentations on horse welfare and a report on the Bou Theib system introduced in the UAE 2015-16 season.

The conference is not an official FEI conference, but EOVs and EVTs may find it of interest.

The event is organized by Tierklinik Lüsche GmbH. The equine clinic Lüsche GmbH is a so-called “full-service-hospital” for horses. All disciplines of equine veterinary medicine are represented, including lamness examinations, orthopedic and soft tissue surgery (including colic surgery). With the comprehensive diagnostic and treatment options the equine clinic Lüsche is the one of the most modern equine clinics in Germany.

This event takes place at the same time as the Longines World Endurance Championship, Sept 15-16.
