Events

The ARVS has been instrumental in improving the standard of veterinary care and welfare of horses on UK racecourses through the provision of quality CPD in the annual Casualty Management Seminar and Summer Scientific Meetings.

These meetings also provide an important opportunity for discussion on the management of injury and disease on and off the racecourse. These courses are also very applicable to Veterinarians providing services other Sports Horse events.

PLEASE NOTE:

Summer Meeting

ARVS is pleased to announce that our Summer Scientific Meeting, “Better Breathing for the Thoroughbred Racehorse” will take place on June 16th, 2021.  The meeting will take place “virtually” due to the continued restrictions for in-person meetings.  We are lucky that all of our scheduled speakers for the meeting in 2020 are able to join us for this rescheduled meeting in 2021.

Casualty Management Seminar

We are planning to run the Casualty Management Seminar in October 18th &19th, 2021. With the unknown trajectory of Covid 19 and various restrictions likely to meeting size, we are currently planning a smaller than normal meeting of 100 delegates. Our aim is to prioritise those veterinary surgeons whose 5 years for accreditation has lapsed as well as younger members of the profession who will be doing the course for the first time. As you can appreciate, plans must be somewhat fluid at this moment as government guidelines are changing, so specific details and confirmation of a place on the course will not be possible for a few months. Please bear with us as we negotiate the exit from the Covid 19 pandemic.

We are also intending to run 2 CMS meetings in 2022

All currently registered will be carried over.

Anyone interested in going on the list for the next available CMS should contact the secretary – secretary@arvs.org.uk

Better breathing for the Thoroughbred Racehorse

ARVS is pleased to announce that our Summer Scientific Meeting, “Better Breathing for the Thoroughbred Racehorse” will take place on June 16th, 2021.  The meeting will take place “virtually” due to the continued restrictions for in person meetings.  We are lucky that all of our scheduled speakers for the meeting in 2020 are able to join us for this rescheduled meeting in 2021.

The morning session will be devoted to laryngeal function based on overground endoscopy with presentation of novel information regarding the merits and methods of training the respiratory muscles to improve function.  The presenters, Lisa Katz, Kate Allen and Laura Fitzharris have been undertaking this original research.   Following this, Safia Barakzai will discuss horses that continue to make noise following various “wind ops” and what the possible causes and remedies might be.  Henry Tremaine will complete the talks related to the upper airway, by providing insight into evaluation and treatment of head trauma at the racecourse.

The afternoon session will be dominated by discussion of diseases of the lower airway.   Celia Marr will provide an overview of exercise induced pulmonary haemorrhage along with the newest information regarding evaluation and treatment.  This will be followed by presentation of a Horserace Betting Levy Board sponsored study regarding Exercise Associated Fatal Pulmonary Haemorrhage, a less well recognised form of EIPH. The lower airway session will be completed by Shaun McKane, reviewing of lower airway disease and the results of sequential BAL and tracheal washes in racehorses in training.  The day will be finished with some case discussions and a question and answer session.

We hope that you will be able to “join” us for this virtual meeting.   Hopefully, one of the last ones to occur in this format, before gathering together in person is allowed.
