It will provide a unique opportunity for specialist vets to learn from the world's leading equine gastroenterology experts, who will share their knowledge of the latest clinical practice and and scientific advances in the treatment and prevention of colic.
The event itself has been running for 30 years and is hosted triennially, and alternately, by the BEVA and the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP). This year it is the turn of the BEVA, and Trinity College Dublin is within easy reach of most European vets.
Diagnostics, epidemiology, microbiome and physiology, surgical techniques and post-operative management will be covered in the 15 minute oral presentations - each one followed by a session of questions and discussion.
The most up-to-date views of equine colic management and clinically-relevant research will be delivered by over 50 oral presentations, and 70 poster presentations. RCVS Specialist in Equine Medicine, Richard Hepburn, will present a plenary lecture on equine gastric ulceration, entitled "After 30 years of Gastroscopy, what are we really seeing?"
Chairman of the organising committee, Chris Proudman, himself a RCVS Specialist in Equine Gastroenterology, says, "This is the Olympics of equine colic research. The leading researchers and practitioners from around the world will be present at the symposium to share their ideas and discuss future challenges. For anyone involved in equine clinical practice or colic research, this is a 'must-go' meeting!"
