Equine Emergencies: Do more in the field

Virtual Event via Zoom

Wounds: Better or worse than they look?
Some wounds may look catastrophic but can be managed in the field and actually have a good prognosis. In other situations the wound may look insignificant but involves vital structures. Attendees will learn how to manage massive skin wounds, along with suture and immobilization techniques to promote repair. They will also learn techniques to identify if vital structures are involved which require more advanced intervention.

Complicated colics: Do more in the field.
Referral of complicated colic cases is not always an option. In this lecture attendees will learn how to implement advanced techniques such as enteral fluid therapy in lieu of IV, and trocharization to correct non strangulating lesions in the field.

Advanced Case Management: You can do it!
In this presentation a series of case examples will be used to illustrate management of advanced cases on the farm. Cases include massive hemorrhage, head wounds, head trauma, neonatal foals and neonatal resuscitation.

Vanessa Cook, VetMB, PhD, DACVS, DACVECC

Dr. Cook went to vet school in England at Cambridge University. She then moved to the United States to do a residency in equine surgery at the Ohio State University. Having obtained board certification in the American College of Veterinary Surgeons, she spent 4 years at the Marion DuPont Scott Equine Medical Center in Leesburg where she developed an interest in emergency case management. She then spent 4 years as a faculty member at Cornell University where she was in charge of the equine emergency service and obtained board certified in the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care. Her interest in colic led to her pursuing a PhD in gastrointestinal physiology at North Carolina State University that was supported by a fellowship from the Morris Animal Foundation. She then took a position as an Assistant, and then Associate Professor in large animal emergency and critical care at Michigan State University. Currently she splits her time between teaching the veterinary nursing program at the College of Southern Nevada, and training for triathlons in which she competes internationally for Team USA.
