Insights into Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS) and Equine Cushing's (PPID)
Endocrinological disease is a well recognised and currently highly researched topic in equine medicine. Pituitary Pars Intermedia Dysfunction - occurring most commonly in the older equid population, and Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS), a disorder associated with insulin dysregulation and endocrinopathic laminitis are the two most common endocrinological diseases affecting horses, ponies and donkeys. This webinar will focus on the pathophysiological basis, how to approach diagnosis as well as treatment and management possibilities for both disease processes.
This webinar is worth 1 hour of assessed continuing veterinary education if the short accompanying quiz is completed after the webinar presentation.
