EQSC 3050 - Equine Medical Management

Hours: 3
Lecture and laboratory. This course is designed to provide information about the diseases against which horses are commonly vaccinated, methods of strategic parasite control, wound care, and medical bandaging. Students will be introduced to the basic principles of immunology which serve as the basis for vaccination programs. Using the guidelines of the American Association of Equine Practitioners, vaccination programs will be examined based on the intended use of the horse, the horse’s age, and pregnancy status. Laboratory sessions will be devoted to techniques of medicine administration (oral administration and intramuscular injection), wound care, bandaging techniques, and the more common medications maintained at equine centers.
Prerequisites: EQSC 1200 with a minimum grade of C, and Junior or Senior standing.
Notes: This course has an additional fee.
