Dr. Martha Mellish, AVC Ambulatory Equine Service

Dr. Martha Mellish, of AVC’s Equine Ambulatory Service, will give a free public workshop, entitled “A pain in the gut: Managing equine digestive issues,” on Wednesday, March 21, at 7 p.m., in Lecture Theatre A, Atlantic Veterinary College, UPEI.

Horses have complex gastro-intestinal systems and can have equally complex digestive problems. The more knowledge horse owners have about these issues, the better they can understand and appropriately manage digestive conditions affecting their animals.

Using a practical model, Dr. Mellish will explain the equine gastro-intestinal tract and talk about common medical conditions that can affect it.

Everyone is welcome. Admission is free, and refreshments will be served. For information, contact (902) 566-0589.
