If you find yourself faced with occasional farm animal crises and would like to improve the service you offer to your farmers in that situation then this webinar is aimed at you.
The presentation will address the key questions facing a practitioner as they are called to the unspecified ‘down cow’. It will focus on how to triage these patients in terms of categorising the pathology type, treatment options and when to advise investigations and modifications on a herd rather than individual cow basis.
It should ensure that any practitioner can be confident in approaching any such emergency knowing that they can leave the animal appropriately treated and the stockperson adequately advised on the prognosis, diagnosis and the implications for the herd.
