AAVA 2013 Fall Equine Seminar

Saturday, October 5, 2013 - 8:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Laurel Ridge Equestrian Center, Temecula,

Southern California Wine Country

About the Speaker: 

Mieke Maelfait, DVM is an IVAS Certified veterinary acupuncturist who has spent the last 10 years working exclusively with Marvin Cain, one of the founders of IVAS and one of the earliest equine veterinary acupuncturists in North America. She now wants to share all that she learned on how to evaluate, diagnose and treat the most common problems seen in the performance horse, both on and off the race track. This one day seminar will take you beyond your basic training in equine acupuncture with a lecture and hands on wet lab. Lunch will also be provided.


This will be a live demonstration and discussion of the process from presentation of actual cases, diagnosis, treatment plan development, and treatment techniques. Patients will be taken from the barns at the Laurel Ridge Equestrian Center and surrounding area. This is intended to be an advanced course and participants are assumed to have knowledge of IVAS point locations.
