New Bolton Center Free Lecture on Equine Emergencies that Could Be Mistaken for Colic
Monday, April 25, 2011
[April 19, 2011; Kennett Square, PA] –On Tuesday, May 3 from 6:30-7:30 PM, New Bolton Center will present You Think It’s Colic but It's Not. The lecture is part of the First Tuesdays Lecture Series at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine at New Bolton Center. The series offers the public open lectures on equine topics, at no charge, the first Tuesday of each month.
The May 3rd lecture will be presented by Barbara Dallap Schaer, VMD, board-certified in large animal surgery and emergency and critical care. An associate professor at New Bolton Center, Dr. Dallap will discuss horses presenting to NBC with signs similar to those of colic that were ultimately diagnosed with disorders of other body systems.
“While colic signs as a result of gastrointestinal disease are the number-one reason horses are referred to veterinary hospitals, similar symptoms can be a result of neuromuscular, urogenital or even cardiovascular problems.”
The presentation will focus on some of those diseases that may present similar to colic.
The First Tuesday Lecture Series offers New Bolton Center an opportunity to share current information on topics of interest and relevance to horse owners and caregivers throughout the region. The series of one-hour lectures covers a wide range of veterinary subjects, each presented by a New Bolton Center clinician with expertise in the subject.
