The eye's have it. Diseases of the bovine head

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

If you don't look you don't see. Clinical examination in the bovine is the cornerstone of diagnosis, because ancillary testing is often not readily available on farm. A good clinical exam is of paramount importance. This lecture provides a refresher on what we can learn from looking at the head and eyes.

If you can't name all 12, then you should attend this lecture!
