Drs. Gary, Easterwood attend equine vet convention

LAS VEGAS—Dr. Leslie Easterwood, DVM, and Dr. Tom Gary, DVM, of Y7 Veterinary Services of Milano, recently attended the 55th annual convention of the American Association of Equine Practitioners, the world’s premier continuing education meeting for equine veterinarians.

The convention, held in Las Vegas Dec. 5-9, offered veterinarians the latest advances in equine health care. Scientific sessions covering topics ranging from critical care to lameness were attended by an international gathering of more than 2,500 veterinary professionals.

Many of the sessions focused on providing new equine health care techniques that can be applied immediately to a veterinarian’s daily practice.

The American Association of Equine Practitioners, headquartered in Lexington, Ky., was founded in 1954 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the health and welfare of the horse.

AAEP reaches more than 5 million horse owners through its nearly 10,000 members worldwide and is actively involved in ethics issues, practice management, research and continuing education.
