First opinion farm emergencies


First opinion farm emergencies

11 Nov 2021
BVA Farm Theatre

The session will cover some of the common emergencies for first opinion practitioners including; obstetrics ( dystocia, uterine and vaginal prolapse), the bleeding cow ( post-calving or udder blood vessels), deep cuts and broken limbs, severe bloat and other abdominal catastrophes (right displaced abomasum, caecal dilation and volvulus, grain overload), toxic mastitis. We will look at the clinical signs, diagnosis, treatment options and likely prognosis of each condition. We will also discuss how to manage the farmer in these situations when things can feel a bit stressful and valued animals can be at risk. We will aim to give the confidence to approach these cases without giving away any nervousness.
