Horses and other equids are companion animals. They are loved and revered in our society and deserve the same attention given to their end-of-life story as all other beloved pets. Equine euthanasia is considered by many to be the most challenging type of euthanasia there is; their size, strength, and the nature of the bond around them makes it necessary for us to increase our skillset and ensure a safe and gentle death each time. Written by David Shuey, LVT, CHPT, a long-standing advocate for ideal standards in equine euthanasia, this module will explore many parameters around equine euthanasia; safety, proper techniques, restraint/handling, maintaining the bond, and more. Join us for an enlightening session sure to make you better prepared to work with these majestic creatures. 2 hours of RACE-approved CE provided for veterinarians and veterinary technicians.
