EMERGENCY RESCUE MASTERCLASS

Dr Nic Fargher has recently returned from attending the WA Horse Council’s large animal emergency rescue master class. The class was run by Anton Phillips from the UK who is an animal rescue specialist. Attendees were from a variety of organisations including the SES and fire service. The action packed 2 day course covered a variety of different rescue scenarios including fire, mud, water, ditches, float turnovers and cattle grid rescues. It was a great opportunity to learn techniques that allow rescue of horses by the most humane methods whilst ensuring the safety of all responders as well as members of the public. All three of our equine vets at Harradine and Associates have had further training in large animal rescue.
