The Internet (January 11, 2021) – In a 2-day virtual event slated for February 13-14, 2021, the first Equine Veterinary Virtual Summit (EVVS) will deliver top equestrian and veterinary experts directly to your device of choice. From world-renowned vets to international show jumpers, the EVVS will harness this wealth of equine knowledge into a valuable package for any rider, trainer, or owner. Sponsored by VetWorld, a line of veterinarian formulated equine supplements, the EVVS is currently offering early bird discounts on all levels of access through February 10th.
One of the headline veterinarians, Dr. Sue Dyson, will address diagnosing equine discomfort in the ridden horse, a key early warning sign for treating and preventing lameness. Dr. Dyson is a MA, VetMB, PhD, DEO, and FRCVS, a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Specialist in Equine Orthopaedics, and is an Associate of the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging. A world-renowned expert in equine orthopedics, Dr. Dyson focuses particularly on lameness and performance in sports horses. Highly skilled in the diagnosis of both subtle and complex lameness cases, she is also an expert in diagnostic imaging, including radiography, ultrasonography, scintigraphy, and magnetic resonance imaging.
Sue has lectured internationally and published more than 230 refereed papers in scientific journals, relating to lameness and diagnostic imaging in the horse. Sue is co-Editor and major author of ‘Diagnosis and Management of Lameness in the Horse,’ ‘Equine Scintigraphy,’ and ‘Clinical Radiology of the Horse.’ In 2013 she received the American Association of Equine Practitioners Frank J. Milne Award.
Another headliner, Dr. John C. Godbold, Jr., will expound upon his expertise in laser therapy in equine patients, and how Equine Photobiomodulation Therapy has helped treat and prevent injury as well as reduce pain, inflammation, and accelerate healing.

He has extensive experience with surgical and therapeutic lasers, has developed new surgical and therapeutic techniques, and assists equipment manufacturers with the development of new laser and light-based technologies.
