Voodoo, Hoodoo, and Hocus Pocus! Sometimes veterinarians have some strange recommendations. Just in time for Halloween, in this month's meeting we'll discuss "Veterinary Voodoo" reviewing some of the less conventional topics in veterinary medicine. We'll discuss the scientific reasoning behind integrative medicine topics such as chiropractic and acupuncture. We'll also discuss which treatments are helpful (like beer for non-sweaters) vs hurtful (like kerosene for rain rot).
This month we are discussing common equine eye conditions. We’ll cover everything from chronic tearing to eye lid lacerations to degenerative eye diseases and more. If you’re a veteran horse owner, you know eye problems in horses are not uncommon and when it comes to treatment for an eye issue, the sooner the better. We’ll be sure to cover some basic trouble shooting so if your horse ever has an eye problem or injury you’ll know what to do.
New Bridge Polo will be hosting the United States Polo Association (USPA) National Youth Tournament Series (NYTS) Championship September 6th and 8th.
This month we are discussing 3 legged or non-weight bearing lameness. We’ll discuss potential causes of severe lameness. We will also discuss what you can do if you find your horse is acutely non-weight bearing until the vet can examine him/her.
This month we are discussing all things miniature. Although minis are horses, they may be predisposed to certain health problems due to their breed. If you own a mini, are thinking about owning a mini, or you petsit minis this should be a very informative meeting.
This month we are tackling common equine myths, legends, and folklore. We will have a POLL THE AUDIENCE segment to our meeting so I strongly encourage you to BRING YOUR SMART PHONE or tablet. We'll present a popular "myth" and poll the audience then discuss the truth behind each topic to determine if it is "confirmed" or "busted." If you have an equine myth you'd like to see presented feel free to comment in the discussion section on the even page.
Hope to see you there!
This month our topic is the equine foot condition called Laminitis also known as "Founder". We'll discuss common causes of laminitis as well as the clinical signs you may see in horses that have this condition. We will also discuss some treatment and management options and common risk factors.
Hope to see you there
Southern Equine Service will be on site and on call at Paradise Farms
This month our topic is what to expect during the first year of a horse's life. This can apply to horses born on your property or horse you acquire who are less than a year of age. We will discuss foal and weanling nutrition, deworming, vaccination recommendations, and much more. If you have young horses or are thinking about having a foal in the future I highly recommend this meeting. Hope to see you there!
