Throughout the conference we explore the imaging of musculoskeletal injuries, how we can improve our diagnostic skills, discussion on the treatment of common injuries, the current gold standard treatments of musculoskeletal injuries and ground-breaking research into retinopathies of older greyhounds. Other talks and panel discussions include the recent coronavirus epidemic in racing greyhounds, the results of some drug excretion studies led by Dr. Steven Karamatic and advancing the welfare of retired greyhounds by Dr. Gavin Goble and Dr. Michelle Ledger.
