RINGNEILL Equine Clinic, Comber, Co. Down was delighted to welcome David Rendle CertEM (IntMed) DipECEIM MRCVS, a European specialist in Equine Internal Medicine, to present a client evening on Gastric Ulcers. The evening was kindly sponsored by BOVA, a drug specials manufacturer dedicated to the Veterinary market and supported by the British Horse Society (Ireland).

A large turnout of over 80 attendees representing various sectors of the equine community from competition horses, to pleasure riders and representatives from the racing industry, availed of the opportunity to listen to David speak about equine glandular gastric disease.

David attended the clinic the following day, where he spent the day performing gastroscopy, alongside vets Chris Akkari and Howard Whelan, where they treated a total of 10 horses that travelled from both the South and North of Ireland.
