McKee-Pownall believes that ongoing client education is a vital component of our equine health and wellness service. While one-on-one interaction with our veterinarians will always be the primary method of giving you the information you need to make the best decisions for your horse, we also provide several other venues that allow you to find the answers you need in a convenient manner. This area is divided into four categories:
OAHN Reports and Fact Sheets
The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) and the Animal Health Lab (AHL), University of Guelph have formed the Ontario Animal Health Network (OAHN), comprised of species-specific expert networks with a focus on animal health, disease surveillance and improving the industry. Please see the reports below put out by the OAHN.
Here is where we post information on our many client "continuing education" opportunities. This includes our client education seminars at various locations as well as our interactive webinars on a variety of subjects.
This section has detailed instructions and demonstration videos on many practical topics such as bandaging a foot or giving an intramuscular injection.
