8:00-11:50 am

Note: Pre-registration is appreciated as we organize lab space! A limited number of attendees may register to participate in the lab on-site. Veterinarians can bring their farrier(s). A cost of $300 is associated with a model hoof for the hands-on portion. Please mark on the registration from the quantity of models you need if you are bringing a farrier. A model can also be shared between a veterinarian and farrier. You will be able to take the model home at the end of the course.

The Sunday Podiatry Lab is a case-based active participation event. A chronic lameness and laminitis case will be covered. If space allows, all MVMA attendees are invited to audit the lab at no charge, however, participation will include a fee of $300. This fee will include one hoof model and shoe for each. Attendees will receive a thumb-drive of case material so bringing a lap-top or ipad is helpful but not required.
