 Expanded wet labs draw crowds at AVMA Annual Convention

Dr. Joyce Harmon demonstrates holistic physical examination on a horse during a July 17 wet lab. Participants in this lab learned techniques such as palpating joints for proper range of motions and using acupuncture points to help in lameness examinations. Although bringing in the horse was part of the logistical challenge of coordinating wet labs, Dr. Bartels said, attendees appreciated the hands-on experience.
