Supporting Champions; Drugs in Equestrian Sport
In light of the recent coronavirus situation Langford Vets has taken the decision to postpone this event until later in the year. This is to ease potential pressure on staff should we see an increased rate of staff absence within the business and to minimise any potential for cross infection. We will of course be continuing to provide veterinary services across the board and look forward to welcoming all our delegates to Langford Vets again later in the year.
Please see our website for updates regarding future event dates. We will also use our website to notify clients and referring vets should there be any changes to our company protocols as the situation changes.
The event is currently sold out but please email firstname.lastname@example.org to join the waiting list and stay updated on the date change.
