This lecture will cover four key emergency situations: colic, wounds, acute lameness and rescue situations and will be aimed at both equine vets and those in mixed practice. Debbie will provide an overview of the key aspects of management of each including what to do and what to avoid. Equine emergencies can sometimes provide some interesting scenarios so being prepared is key. The lecture will include some case examples demonstrating the challenges that our equine patients can throw at us.
