BEVA Dont Break Your Vet Week
The British Equine Veterinary Association launches "dont break your vet week"
A significant proportion of equine vets will, at some point in their career, end up unconscious or hospitalised following an injury directly related to their work, the journal Equine Veterinary Education has just published research to back this up. To help address this serious issue we’re launching Don’t Break Your Vet week to encourage horse owners to help reduce the risks that vets sometimes face.
Running from the Thursday 1 February, Don’t Break Your Vet week comprises of a series of seven short video tutorials featuring vet and equine behaviourist Gemma Pearson. The videos provide quick and simple techniques that will help horse owners prepare their horses to be quiet, relaxed and safe for veterinary, and other procedures, including clipping and giving oral medication such as wormers.
We will be showcasing the tutorials on our Facebook page, so keep a look out for any hints or tips. For more information on the BEVA dont break your vet week, see their website here.. www.beva.org.uk
