BEVA and AAEP introduce Transatlantic Equine Clinics
The clinics will be held every other month and are free for BEVA and AAEP members.
Experts from the UK and USA to discuss their approach to clinical conundrums in equine practice.

BEVA has teamed up with its transatlantic equivalent, the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP), to launch a series of virtual Transatlantic Equine Clinics.

The sessions will see experts from the UK and USA discuss and debate their approach to 'clinical conundrums' in equine veterinary practice. The first clinic, held in April, saw Roger Smith, Dean Richardson and Luis Rubio-Martinez talk about the treatment of distal limb orthopaedic infections. 

The next clinic takes place on Wednesday, 30 June with Simon Peek Thomas Divers and Sarah Smith debating what’s new in investigating and managing liver disease'. In August, Scott Pirie and David Freeman will go head-to-head on the causes and management of reflux in post-operative colics.

“The equine world is a small one, and the pandemic has highlighted how close everyone in that world is, online," commented BEVA’s learning manager Sarah Gaspar. “We are delighted to be running this series of focussed discussions with our colleagues in the States - comparing our ideas, finding out who does what, why and whether it works better there or over here.” 

The clinics will be held every other month and are free for BEVA and AAEP members. Other sessions cover subchondral bone cysts of the stifle (October) and the management of the high-risk pregnancy (December).

News Story 1
 Veterinary surgeon and Olympic silver-medalist Laura Muir scooped the gold medal in the 1500m final Commonwealth Games on Sunday.

Winning Scotland's 12th title of the games, Muir finished in four minutes 2.75 seconds, collecting her second medal in 24 hours.

Dr Muir commented on her win: "I just thought my strength is in my kick and I just tried to trust it and hope nobody would catch me. I ran as hard as I could to the line.

"It is so nice to come here and not just get one medal but two and in such a competitive field. Those girls are fast. It means a lot."

Views sought on NOAH Compendium

Users of the National Office of Animal Health (NOAH) Compendium app and website are being asked to share their views on how it can be improved.

In a new survey, users are asked about some suggested future developments, such as notifications for new and updated datasheets, sharing links to datasheets, and enhanced search functionality.

It comes after NOAH ceased publication of the NOAH Compendium book as part of its sustainability and environmental commitments. The website and the app will now be the main routes to access datasheets and view any changes.
