Description/Notes: 

Equine acupuncture is a “hot topic” among horse owners as an option in keeping your horse competing at top level.  Equine acupuncture can help elevate pain, anti-inflammatory effects, regulate hormonal imbalances among many other health concerns.  As many veterinarians begin to offer this service as part of their treatment options, the benefits of acupuncture are seen to greatly improve not only the performance but overall health of the horse.

Join the University of Maryland Extension at Layfield Veterinarian Services in Princess Anne, MD to learn how your horse can benefit from this treatment and when your horse should receive it.  Dr. Erin Giza, certified veterinary acupuncturist, will be showing how acupuncture is conducted during a hand on demonstration, with question and answer session to follow.

Refreshments will be provided along with door prizes during the program.  Cost of the program is $5.00, with checks made payable to Worcester County Extension EAC. To register for this program, contact Jessie Renshaw at 410-632-1972 or jrenshaw@umd.edu.
