Seminar Success

On February 3rd and 4th, B.W. Furlong and Associates’ New Jersey Clinic hosted its annual seminar series for veterinarians and clients respectively. 

Full House at the Seminar
Over 50 veterinarians from New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York attended the 11th annual seminar held at Willie McBrides in Branchburg. Dr. Edward Earley, owner of Laurel Highland Veterinary Services in Williamsport, PA, spoke about Equine Dentistry and our very own Dr. Rachel Gardner shared several case presentations.

Continuing education credits were provided to the veterinarians in attendance.

On Saturday February 4th, 2012 more than 100 local clients joined us for our 11th annual Horse Health Seminar.

After breakfast at the Oldwick Fire Hall, the associate veterinarians shared presentations on colic, dentistry, rehabilitation and conditioning, case presentations on stomach ulcers and respiratory disease, nutrition and breeding. Some myths were definitely busted! 

Thank you so much to all of those that attended and a huge thank you to our sponsors. See you there in 2013!

Presentation materials from this year’s client seminar will be available on our website here.
