Tuesday, September 21, 2010
First Tuesdays Lecture Series continues with a presentation about the impact of airway irregularities on your horse’s performance - Tuesday October 5th, 6:30-7:30 PM
[September 20, 2010; Kennett Square, PA] –At the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine New Bolton Center, the First Tuesdays Lecture Series offers the public open lectures on equine topics, at no charge, the first Tuesday of each month.
On October 5th, New Bolton Center resident in Large Animal Internal Medicine Jenni Read BVMS (Hons) presents No lung, no horse: equine respiratory disease. Dr. Read’s talk will address the most commonly seen respiratory diseases in horses, what causes them, and how we diagnose and treat them. She will focus mainly on diseases of the lower airway or lungs. “These diseases,” says Dr. Read, “are common and impact horses working in a broad range of disciplines. They can cause significant illness and adversely affect performance.”
Future First Tuesday Lectures include colic, fracture stability in the field, EPM and the equine high-speed treadmill as a diagnostic tool. The series of one hour lectures covers a wide range of veterinary subjects, each one of relevance to the horse owner and caregiver. All will be presented by New Bolton clinicians with expertise in the subject.
