Annual Scientific Meeting, July 13-15, 2017 in Edinburgh, Scotland

Large Animal Programme 

The 2017 large animal programme will be composed of 4 main and 2 parallel in-depth streams, which are run together with the scientific presentations. A particular focus will be placed on equine dentistry, a session on ligaments and interosseous muscle and the thorax.

The parallel session will cover current advances in anaesthesia techniques and the clinical biomedical relevance of surfaces and shoeing of horses.

The detailed programme can be downloaded >here (The programme will continuously be updated.)
The list of accepted posters can be found >here.

When planning your days and lectures, the Programme Committee invites you to not only look into your own speciality's programme: Watch out for the little Look outside the box hints in the programme, of which you will find at least one per day in the large animal programme; here the Programme Committee recommends lectures and streams from the small animal programme, which are of interest to large animal delegates, too.
