A guide to equine nutrition 

Julie Potier DVM,MRCVS 

Knowledge of your horse’s body condition score is essential to achieve an ideal diet. Julie will describe how to accurately assess your horse’s body condition score, with some examples. She will also be discussing nutritional guidelines, which will enable your horse to reach an ideal body condition. 

 

Filling the gaps- a modern approach to equine dentistry 

Tom McGinley BVMS Cert AVP (Equine Dentistry) MRCVS 

Recent advances in equine dentistry have led to the development of several new treatments. Restorative procedures (‘fillings’) are now possible and can help to prevent disease progression and the need for tooth extraction. Tom will discuss infundibular caries, a common condition affecting equine cheek teeth and the merits of infundibular restoration in such cases. 

 

Behavioural therapy for needle phobic horses 

Holly Lenaghan BVetMed MRCVS 

At Liphook Equine Hospital we frequently see horses who are needle shy, showing aversive and occasionally dangerous behaviour. A simple vaccination can turn into a hugely stressful event for the horse, it’s owner and the vet. Using Learning Theory we can re-train these horses to accept adverse stimuli such as needles, utilising how horses learn to change their behaviour in a calm and positive manor. Holly will talk us through the procedure of clicker training, which she has used very successfully on some of our most difficult cases.
