An equine veterinarian needs to be fully competent in all aspects of performing the Pre-Purchase Examination. Be that in either the Sporthorse, Racehorse or the Juvenile, being able to communicate effectively with the Purchaser and Vendor; knowing how to report abnormal findings; pre-purchase medication screening; being able to assess the use of radiology, endoscopy and drug screening and very importantly, avoiding litigation from a disgruntled client are essential skills for the equine vet.

This workshop presents a fully guided and interactive, 5 Stage process to learn the required skills. EVA’s excellent Pre-Purchase Examination video will be used to cover all the aspects in a completely interactive process. With newly updated material for 2018 and presented by two former presidents of Equine Veterinarians Australia, this comprehensive one day Pre Purchase Examination workshop is a must for equine veterinarians and mixed practitioners alike. All delegates will receive a complimentary copy of the brand new edition of the ‘EVA Blue Book: A guide to the examination of the horse.’ The workshop is excellent value and attracts:
