Vet seminar goes down a treat!
Horse owners enjoyed a useful and informative evening, learning all about colic and equine dentistry from Redwings’ top vets.
The free seminar at Redwings Aylsham on Wednesday evening (25th February), entitled ‘Tummy and toothache: An exploration of colic and equine dentistry’, featured talks from our award-winning head vet Nicky Jarvis – recent winner of Your Horse magazine readers’ Ultimate Horse Expert award – and our welfare veterinary surgeon Nicola Berryman.
As well as having all their questions answered by our experts, delegates enjoyed free refreshments and were able to grab some bargains at our second-hand tack sale.
The event was the first in a series of free evening seminars we are holding for horse owners across East Anglia, and future seminars will include parasite protection for your horse, a guide to weight management and care for golden oldies.
The next seminar at Redwings Aylsham will take place on Wednesday 29th April. For more information, please contact our education officer Andie at email@example.com or phone 01508 481066.
