Join us for an evening of four short talks on equine therapies and how they can help your horse. This can be either as part of a planned rehabilitation programme to get your horse back on track after injury, or as part of a regular maintenance programme in order to help optimise performance.
Dr Rachel Read
Rachel is a sport horse clinician at our Diagnostic Centre. She focuses mainly on managing, maintenance and rehabilitation of sport horses and is now offering a mobile veterinary service specialising in orthopaedics, acupuncture and optimising performance for showjumpers, event and dressage horses. Rachel will start the evening’s talks with an ‘Update on Veterinary Therapies’ (including Arthramid, biologics and laser therapy). She will conclude the evening with a talk about the benefits of Equine Acupuncture.
Dr Carolin Gerdes
Carolin (pictured) is one of our senior clinicians at the Diagnostic Centre. Her main interests are orthopaedics, diagnostic imaging and the investigation of horses presenting with poor performance and behavioural problems. Carolin also offers a Veterinary Chiropractic service and is certified by both the International Academy of Veterinary Chiropractic (IAVC) and the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association (IVCA). Carolin will discuss how Chiropractic techniques can be applied as a complementary or alternative treatment option for functional joint problems following a thorough orthopaedic examination.
Kate is a Chartered Physiotherapist, specialising in equine physiotherapy. She has extensive experience as both a human and equine Physiotherapist and now works as a consultant to the Rossdales veterinary team on Tuesday and Friday afternoons.
