Every January, Carolina Equine Hospital puts on it’s Winter Horse Health Seminar. This event is a way for clients and the general public to come together and learn about important topics that can affect horses, while also getting to know our doctors and hospital staff.
Each seminar topic has been carefully thought out and is chosen based off of what we have been seeing lately in our practice, what our clients have shown interest in, or relevance to upcoming new medications.
Read below to see what is in store for this year’s winter seminar!
