Conference Recordings ~ So many of you asked!
Recordings of the 2103 NO Laminitis! Conference, held in Jacksonville, OR, USA, September 27-29, 2013 are available on ecirhorse.org.
Some comments from attendees:
~ As a veterinarian, (I have shared what I learned to) help hoof care professionals better understand the medical part, but also get help myself from the hoof care providers. Team approach needed to heal.
~ I liked the small group size and ample opportunities for questions and answers.
~ Dr. Kellon was amazing and so devoted to the subject/research.
~ ..... my journey is about their feet and their trim. Dr. Bowker’s presentation (was) most helpful. To hear Dr. Kellon speak was awesome. I enjoyed all her topics and can even tighten up my horses diets more to prevent Iron Overload.
~ Very good and important that none of the presenters were promoting a particular product or brand name or their personal business.
~ I returned with a renewed enthusiasm for a sometimes discouraging situation, and with new information.
