Attendees at the 2023 Saratoga Vet & Farrier Conference will be treated to an exclusive appearance by world-renowned veterinarian Professor Chris Pollitt, as he makes his final North American speaking engagement. The conference will be held in Saratoga Springs, New York, from Sept. 27-30, 2023, and offers this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. 

 Professor Pollitt (BVSc, PhD) has dedicated his life’s work to furthering scientific research and education on the equine foot with a special focus on laminitis, expanding the knowledge of veterinarians around the world. He is the author of two leading reference books on the equine foot, including The Color Atlas of the Horse’s Foot (1995) and The Illustrated Horse’s Foot (2015), both published by Elsevier. 

 Pollitt is the founder of the Australian Equine Laminitis Research Unit at the University of Queensland School of Veterinary Science, which has been a world leader in equine laminitis research since the mid-1990s. 

On Saturday, Sept. 30, conference-goers will be able to sign up for a very special wet lab led by the incredible team of Dr. Chris Pollitt and Dr. Andrew van Eps, who will be working side-by-side in "the Laminitis Lab," bringing another exclusive opportunity that you won’t find anywhere else. Spaces for the wet lab will be limited, so please book your spot early.

 "I am so excited to be speaking at the 2023 NAEP Saratoga Vet & Farrier Conference. This is particularly poignant as it may be the last time I am able to visit old friends — and new — in the USA.  I am especially looking forward to the wet lab with my Aussie colleague Dr van Eps; we have lots of new and interesting discoveries to share with you. See you in September."

 As always, the Saratoga Vet & Farrier Conference has curated an impressive lineup of world-class presenters offering RACE-approved CE credits in the areas of lameness, podiatry and internal medicine, with dentistry being a new addition for 2023.
