Foal sepsis

Emily Haggett

Sepsis remains one of the leading causes of foal mortality. This webinar will focus on the identification of risk factors and early clinical signs that allow the early identification of sepsis. We will discuss the pathophysiology of how sepsis occurs and then focus on the practical approach to treatment and prevention. This webinar is aimed at giving solid practical advice to the equine vet. Emily graduated from the University of Bristol in 2003 and worked in equine and small animal practice for 18 months. She then completed an equine internship at the Liphook Equine Hospital in Hampshire.

Scanning horizons for emerging infectious disease threats to UK horses

Dr Richard Newton

In this presentation Dr Richard Newton will look at the concept of ‘horizon scanning’ in the context of emerging infectious disease threats to the horse population of the United Kingdom. In setting the scene for the concept, the importance of infectious diseases to the global horse industry will be argued as will broad requirements for prevention and control of these diseases. Pragmatic definitions of the key terms ‘epidemiology’, ‘surveillance’ and ‘horizon scanning’ will be outlined before exploring the concept further through addressing a number of key questions. These will include i) Why is horizon scanning important? ii) What might horizon scanning involve? iii) What arise from horizon scanning? and iv) What resources are currently available for horizon scanning? In addressing these questions the emerging importance of vector borne equine diseases, the effective shrinking of the globe to horses, the comparison of examples of human and equine transcontinental viral disease transmission, the breadth of currently available online resources and the range of possible actions, voluntary and mandatory, to mitigate against disease will all be addressed. The answers to these various questions will then be given practical contexts through three recent examples of distinct emerging equine diseases that have posed tangible threats to the health and welfare of the horse population of the United Kingdom. For each disease case study a brief outline of the emerging threat will be provided, followed by the practical steps taken by relevant stakeholders in order to understand and develop improved preparedness in order to mitigate the associated risks. This talk intends to take you through the concepts of developing understanding and preparedness for emerging disease threats, using examples of real and current diseases of high relevance and potential impact to the UK horse industry – it is not simply a ‘text book’ reproduction of well-known but simply regurgitated facts about a series of exotic equine diseases! After graduating in Veterinary Science from Liverpool University in 1991 and working in mixed veterinary practice in Herefordshire and South Shropshire, Richard Newton joined the Epidemiology Unit of the Animal Health Trust in 1994. Since completing a Masters in Communicable Disease Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in November 1998 he has worked on the epidemiology of a variety of diseases of companion animals, including grass sickness, EIPH and strangles in horses and influenza, including cross-species transmission from horses to dogs. He completed his PhD on the epidemiology of equine infectious respiratory disease in 2002 and in 2003 was awarded both the Diploma of Fellowship from the Royal College Veterinary Surgeons and became a de facto Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Public Health.  He is currently Head of Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance at the Animal Health Trust. The group at the AHT currently has programmes on infectious disease surveillance in the UK for which it prepares quarterly disease reports for Defra and regular updates on global equine disease occurrence through the International Collating Centre. He also oversees dedicated programmes on grass sickness surveillance and vaccination and epidemiological research of equine laminitis. Away from work Richard enjoys cycling and, along with his long-suffering wife, running an evening and weekend taxi service for his three sons, who manage to keep them busy with their various sporting and ‘cultural’ interests!

Physiotherapy

Naomi Smith

During this talk, Naomi will be talking about the qualifications and pathway to becoming a chartered animal physiotherapist and the comprehensive physiotherapy philosophy and approach.  Assessment strategies commonly used in practice, incorporating subjective with objective information to make treatment decisions.  Also some examples of treatment techniques and where they might be appropriate. She will try to bring this together with examples of her approach to treating problems such as back pain, spavin and sacroiliac pain with an emphasis on core and posture.  She will also speak about the interaction between horse and rider and the consequences of asymmetry or weakness and instability in the rider which may not be helping the horse to perform well or stay sound and comfortable in work. This is an area that is not often considered. We hope that this talk will provide a little information about ACPAT, who are a highly professional group of individuals with a desire to create a more united front to achieve the best results for horses and their riders. …and who were the sole providers of physiotherapy to the equines and equestrians at London 2012!!! Naomi graduated from Nottingham university 1996 with a BSc (Hons) in physiotherapy and then spent several years building up experience and expertise in musculoskeletal physiotherapy in both the NHS and private practice in the UK and Overseas.  Having owned and or ridden horses all her life she had a special interest in horses and finished her ACPAT (Association of Chartered physiotherapists in Animal Practice) in 2003 and has worked with horses in Kent, the USA and South Wales. She now has a thriving practice working with horses and riders ranging from team GB driving ponies, endurance horses, elite show jumpers and dressage horses to happy hackers. Her work ranges from post injury or surgical convalescence to pre competition checks. Naomi works as closely as possible with local and referring vets and other equine professionals, as she feels that the best results are achieved when there is a multidisciplinary team doing joined up thinking…even though this is not always easy! The symmetry and core stability of riders and the consequences for the horse is an area of particular interest to her.

Colic Made Simple

Melissa Packer

Colic cases can be challenging for vets. Identifying whether the abdominal pain is due to gastrointestinal disease can sometimes be difficult in some cases. The aim of this lecture is to explain the differentiating signs of medical and surgical colics, and to highlight causes of abdominal pain remote from the gastrointestinal tract (so called false colic). Discussion of treatment regimes and recognising when to refer a case will also be addressed.

Melissa packer BVetMed Cert ES (STS) MRCVS graduated in 2003 from the RVC and spent four years in predominately equine practice before undertaking a surgical residency in gastroenterology at the Philip Leverhulme Equine Hospital in 2007. Melissa achieved a RCVS certificate in Equine Soft Tissue Surgery in 2009 and is currently in private practice working towards the ECVS diploma in Large Animal Surgery.

Sarcoids & Other Dermal Tumours

Shaun McKane

Shaun McKane will discuss Sarcoids & Other Dermal Tumours during this webinar. Dermal tumours such as sarcoids, melanomas and squamous cell carcinomas are common conditions presented to veterinarians. In this talk we will look at the hot tips for diagnosing these conditions and the logical approach to the treatment of them. The key to improving the welfare of horses with tumours is the early recognition and therapeutic action of the vet. After this talk you will be faster at both recognising the problem and responding. In doing so you will improve your success rates and reduce the owner fear associated with these conditions.

Shaun got his veterinary degree from the University of Sydney in 1993, where he also completed an intercalating degree in equine respiratory responses to exercise with Prof. Reuben Rose. After a time in equine practice he moved to take up a PhD at the University of Melbourne, centred on the affects of exercise induced pulmonary haemorrhage on racehorse lungs.

Wanting to continue his development as an equine Specialist, he moved to Oregon State University in 1999, to undertake a residency position and become a Boarded Specialist with the American College of Equine Internal Medicine. In 2002 he moved to the University of Liverpool, Leahurst where he has worked as a senior lecturer in equine medicine and has become a European College Specialist in Equine Medicine. He has recently moved back into private equine practice at Cotts Equine Hospital in West Wales to provide a specialist medical and intensive care service to the growing racing and pleasure horse population in that region.
