Equine Medicine Conference Online - Loop Abroad

Equine Medicine Conference


Loop Abroad and University of Findlay are proud to be co-hosting the 2021 Virtual Equine Medicine Conference.

You are welcome to join from anywhere in the world. We are proud to be able to offer conference access for $199 only $99, which includes recorded lectures from equine vets, a tour of the horse facilities at University of Findlay (UF), a live Q&A about equine medicine with our Academic Director Dr. Erica Ward, and live equine medicine sessions on-site at UF.

This conference is an opportunity to learn more about equine medicine whether you are a complete beginner or have worked with horses before. If you are hoping to learn more about horses or considering whether a focus in equine medicine might make sense for you, we invite you to join us!

Lecture and Live Session Topics

Participants will be given access to the recorded lectures three days before the conference so that they’ll have plenty of time to take notes.

The live sessions will also be recorded so that participants who can’t join us on the day of the conference will have up to three days afterward to watch the recordings.

Between 3 hours of pre-recorded lectures and 2 hours of live sessions, you will get a chance to explore the following topics:

  • Performing a proper physical exam
  • Leg wrapping
  • Cleaning feet
  • Injections – location, type of administration
  • Nasolacrimal duct anatomy and flushing
  • Lameness      
  • Proper Horse Handling 
  • Blood Draw 
  • Nasogastric Tube Placement

Live Schedule: Saturday, January 16th
