Lameness and Laminitis Seminar Scheduled for June 24

The Sanctuary Equine Sports Therapy & Rehabilitation Center, located in Ocala, Fla., will offer a "Lameness and Laminitis Symposium" in conjunction with the grand opening of their new lameness evaluation center.

"Our next event for the community is on ... June 24 at 4:00 p.m. (EDT) when we will host a Lameness and Laminitis Symposium featuring renowned speakers who will be discussing equine podiatry," said Brenda McDuffee, general manager. "Most horse owners face lameness issues with their horses at one point or another, so this is certainly something that will be of great interest to the community. At the same time, we also want to invite everyone to the grand opening of our Lameness Evaluation Center."

Vernon Dryden, CVM, CJF, and Raul J. Bras, DVM, CJF, both of Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital, in Lexington, Ky., will lead the lameness and laminitis symposium.

McDuffee said the symposium is free and open to the public, but attendees are asked to RSVP to 352/369-4325. For more information, visit
