[October 8, 2010; Kennett Square, PA] –Colic is the number one killer of horses. On November 2, New Bolton Center Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine and Critical Care Louise Southwood PhD, BVSc presents Equine Colic from the Inside Out. Dr. Southwood’s talk will provide an overview of colic caused by gastrointestinal disease. Some new information will be provided, with discussion on the importance of early referral and the factors that go into the decision to take a horse with colic to surgery. A short video of colic surgery will also be shown. This free lecture is open to the public, and is part of the continuing First Tuesdays Lecture Series at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine New Bolton Center. The series offers the public open lectures on equine topics, at no charge, the first Tuesday of each month.
“The enthusiasm of the audience for our First Tuesday lectures is matched by the enthusiasm of our presenting veterinarians,” says Corinne Sweeney DVM, Associate Dean of New Bolton Center. “We are so pleased with the reception this lecture series has received from the local equine community.” Future First Tuesday Lectures include lameness, wound care, pain management and EPM. 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.
