The University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine
25th Seminar for the Serious Horse Owner
The 411 on Large Animal Rescue
Saturday, February 14, 2015
This program will be of interest to all horse enthusiasts, from horse owners to animal medical personnel to Level 1 First Responders! Incidents that involve large animals require special considerations. Multi-agency responses allow animal control, firefighters, veterinarians, the owner, and, if necessary, law enforcement to meet their responsibilities and achieve common goals. The setup and management of the scene is critical. Lights, noise and the movement of the rescuers can have dramatic impact on trapped and unpredictable animals. This program will expose you to concerns with animal emergencies.
Receive valuable information on the basics of large animal rescue safety procedures and get an understanding of the roles and capabilities of all
those involved in rescue emergencies.
Participants of this course will learn the basics of how to respond to On-Road and Off-Road Large Animal Rescue (LAR) incidents. Our afternoon round-robin demonstrations will give you an awareness and exposure to hands-on training with life-size, weighted, articulated manikins that allow training for virtually any LAR situation.

The Student Chapter of the American Association of Equine Practitioners (SCAAEP aka Equine Club) holds an annual silent auction during the Seminar for the Serious Horse Owner. This is the club’s largest fund raiser of the year. All of the items are donated and the club members volunteer their time to run the auction. With the funds that are raised, the club is able to provide small scholarships for students to attend meetings and educational activities. Proceeds from the auction also help pay for speakers and labs to provide more opportunities for
students interested in equine medicine. They are a large, very active club and greatly appreciate all the financial support they receive. Some items you may find at the silent auction are: Stained glass; hand-crafted wooden bowls; jumps, helmets; boots; jewelry; books; pet food; toys; videos; gift certificates; tack; and much more! Bid high and bid often!!
