Veterinarians can’t afford to miss our 3-day virtual conference, convened by Wendy Baltzer, specialist in small animal surgery, sports medicine and rehabilitation. Throughout the conference, you will have the opportunity to refine your day-to-day assessment and work up of orthopaedic issues – from tips for lameness exams in cats, to refining and interpreting your radiographs, and discerning neurological from musculoskeletal disorders.

Joining Wendy are international presenters including Sharon Kerwin (surgeon and neurologist), Joseph Wakshlag (nutritionist and specialist in sports medicine and rehabilitation), Kristin Kirkby Shaw (surgeon & specialist in sports medicine & rehabilitation), Janice Huntingford (specialist in sports medicine & rehabilitation, chiropractor and acupuncturist) Rachel Pollard and Nicola Moffatt (diagnostic imaging), Philip Moses, Gordon Corfield and Peter Delisser (small animal surgeons); Sanaa Zaki (veterinarian and biomedical researcher), and Donna White (Sydney Animal Pain Clinic).

The conference program is split into three sessions per day to cater to busy clinic schedules. With sessions at 6am-8am, 12pm-2pm and 6pm-8pm along with three months access to content on demand after the conference, attending this conference will build you and your team’s acumen on these topics into 2023 and beyond.
