Wisconsin Vet School Offers Free Talk on Equine Podiatry

Horse owners who want to learn more about proper equine foot care and maintenance are invited to attend a free talk at the University of Wisconsin's Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital Oct. 22.

Farrier Dean Johanningmeier, who has provided horse shoeing and trimming services to the School of Veterinary Medicine for the past 20 years, will present on the topic of equine podiatry from 7-9 p.m. at the UW School of Veterinary Medicine in Madison. Directions are available online.

Johanningmeier promotes a proactive approach to foot and hoof care to prevent mild lameness from turning into a more serious injury.

Registration for the presentation is free, but seating is limited so registration is required. To register, call Karl Olson at 608/265-5206 or register online at vetmed.wisc.edu/ce.
