Equine Guelph is combating the number one killer of horses (other than old age!) with a new eWorkshop on colic prevention March 11 to 24.
This online short course is designed to help horse owners understand colic and take preventative measures by following good stable management practices. The cost is $75 CAN plus HST.
Equine Guelph’s Colic Prevention eWorkshop will cover topics that will help horse caregivers reduce colic in horses by identifying risk factors, understanding different types of colic, detecting early signs and symptoms, assessing management plans, and developing preventative strategies.
Upon completion of the Colic Prevention eWorkshop, participants are eligible to receive a certificate from Equine Guelph. This two-week online course also qualifies for Equine Canada
coaches updating credits.
As part of the colic prevention program, Equine Guelph is also launching its latest online health care tool, the “Colic Risk Rater,” which will assess and calculate colic risk and provide useful feedback on management practices.
Every month in 2013, Equine Guelph will be providing a practical colic prevention tip in Equine Guelph’s e-News, which will be capped off with the release of a Colic Prevention Tips poster in December.
