Tuesday, January 11:  Elizabeth MacDonald, Clinical Instructor of Equine Medicine

“Equine pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction and equine metabolic syndrome: Understanding the difference”

Equine pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID, Cushing’s disease) and equine metabolic syndrome are the two most common endocrine disorders diagnosed in the horse. Both conditions can have a significant impact on the health of the horse. This talk will discuss the difference between both conditions, how it affects the horse and what we can do to manage these conditions.

Tuesday, February 8:  Krista Estell, Clinical Assistant Professor of Equine Medicine

“Spinal cord disease in the horse: new diagnostics for old diseases”

Wobbler’s disease, neck and back injury and arthritis, and Equine Protozoal Myeloencephalopathy (EPM) have caused neurologic disease in horses for years. This talk will review the clinical signs of neurologic disease and discuss exciting new techniques to better diagnose neurologic conditions in horses.

Tuesday, March 8:  Maureen Kelleher, Clinical Assistant Professor of Sports Medicine and Surgery

“The alphabet of acronyms in equine orthopedics”

With all of the new technology available to diagnose and treat tendon, ligament, bone, and joint injuries in the horse, it is hard to keep track of what they are, how they work, and when to use them.  The talk will cover diagnostics such as MRI and CT then move on to treatments such as PRP, ACS, and MSC.

Tuesday, April 12:  Jennifer Barrett, Theodora Ayer Randolph Professor of Equine Surgery

“Colic: What every horse owner should know”

This presentation will explain what colic is, and how veterinarians treat it.

At the end of each presentation there will be a Q&A session.

There is no charge to attend these webinars, but we ask that you consider supporting the center’s Good Samaritan Fund, which provides financial assistance to equine owners who are unable to financially support the treatment of serious and/or life-threatening conditions when a successful outcome and good quality of life are likely.
