On Wednesday 31 January at 7 pm (GMT), World Horse Welfare will be discussing equine dental care with experts at Welfare Wednesday Webinar. Vet Stuart Altoft, who treats the horses at our Glenda Spooner Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Somerset, will begin by examining routine care and common equine dental problems. The discussion will then turn to lesser-known dental issues and managing dental care in the veteran horse population. The British Association of Equine Dental Technicians (BAEDT) chairman, James Arkley, will also join us to answer your tooth-related questions in a live Q&A session.
As always, by registering for our Zoom webinars, you can participate in the various polls, ask questions during the Q&A, and enjoy an interactive experience. Please REGISTER HERE.
Our incredibly popular webinars have grown to over 50 thought-provoking subjects, and all are free to view on our World Horse Welfare advice pages. Topics this year include diverse themes, such as social media and horse welfare, managing arthritic changes in ridden horses, understanding aggression, nutrition myths and marketing.
