Last night over 300 people atteneded a Client Evening to hear presentations on Equine Metabolic Syndrome and Cushing’s disease which together account for 90% of laminitis cases. The importance of testing and treating Cushing’s was emphasised and a new programme for controlled weight loss was explained. For those people who couldn’t get tickets or were unable to attend, we are planning to run another meeting on Tuesday 23rd October @ 7pm. Further details will follow shortly so if you are interested in coming please email firstname.lastname@example.org or ring the office on 01428 723594.
Last night, Dave Rendle explained that volunteers from Liphook Equine Hospital will be contributing expertise to a trip to 11 Ethiopian Veterinary Schools early next year to help train and equip the Ethiopian vets on the ground to continue SPANA’s work in improving equine welfare in that country. A collection was held at the end of the meeting last night and we are thrilled to say that we raised just under £800 toward our target of £3000. If anyone wasn’t able to make a donation last night but would like to, please call SPANA direct on 0207 8313999. Every contribution, however small, makes a big difference to equine welfare.
