WCF News: Don't break your vet

01 February 2018

Don't break your vet


The Worshipful Company of Farriers is delighted to support the #dontbreakyourvet campaign week from 1st-7th February, an initiative launched by BEVA to help minimize injury to both vets and those who handle horses.

Please follow the campaign via the BEVA twitter feed or Facebook page, or watch the seven short 'Don't Break Your Vet' tutorials on YouTube.

The research to back this statement up was published last week in the journal Equine Veterinary Education (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/eve.12891/full) as statistically equine vets have the highest risk of injury of all professions. Whatever your involvement with equines, please do take a moment to watch the clips.
