UF Healthy Horses Conference Scheduled for April 9

On April 9, the University of Florida (UF) College of Veterinary Medicine is hosting their 4th annual Healthy Horses Conference. Healthy Horses is an educational day with a focus on successful equine health care. The day includes lectures, lunch, and live equine demonstrations.

This year's topics are compiled from previous requests and will include poisonous plants for horses, lameness evaluation, colic, hoof care, non-sweaters, supplements, and emerging infectious diseases among others.

A high-speed treadmill demonstration and a reproduction demonstration with pregnancy ultrasounds will be featured. The presenters will predominantly be the board-certified faculty of UF's Large Animal Hospital, and a brief summary folder of the lectures will be provided to all attendees. Platinum Performance, Purina Mills, Merial, Pfizer and Intervet are sponsoring this year's conference and will be providing door prizes as well.

The University of Florida is dedicated to improving owner education and hope you will help continue this annual event. Plenty of time for questions will be provided. Registration is limited and can be completed online, so please register soon. Also, be sure to visit the UF equine extension website for additional equine event information.
