USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service sent this bulletin at 01/10/2014 05:57 PM EST

As part of our ongoing efforts to enforce the Horse Protection Act and eliminate the cruel and inhumane practice of soring horses, USDA Animal Care will host a webinar with a renowned expert in the fields of equine thermography and digital imaging.

 

Dr. Tracy A. Turner, DVM, MS (diplomate, American College of Veterinary Surgeons; diplomate, American Board of Thermology), will present scientific evidence in the form of thermal and digital imaging that he has collected over the past six years while serving as a consultant to USDA’s Horse Protection Program. His advancements in the area of thermography are helping us make strides as we continue to work with the walking horse industry to ensure that only sound and healthy horses participate in shows/exhibitions/sales/auctions.

 

Dr. Turner, a professionally recognized leader in equine podiatry, has published over 100 manuscripts and book chapters. As an influential member of the American Association of Equine Practitioners, he has served on numerous national and state committees. He attended veterinary school at Colorado State University, interned at the University of Georgia and completed his surgical residency and Master of Science degree at Purdue University. He has held multiple academic positions, including chief of large animal surgery at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Turner is a member of the International Equine Veterinarians Hall of Fame and is one of only four individuals to be board certified in veterinary thermography.

 

The webinar will take place Friday Jan. 17, 2014, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. EST. To register, please click here: https://www4.gotomeeting.com/register/705181247.
