An area for veterinarians from around the world to get together to exchange knowledge and network will be running during the FEI World Championship in Jumping, Dressage, Para-Dressage, and Vaulting, in Herning in Denmark from this weekend.

The Vet Lounge, sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim, will give veterinarians an opportunity for professional contact close to the warm-up area, and a place where they can exchange experiences with colleagues from around the world. It will also be used for professional talks targeted at veterinarians. International experts are being flown to Denmark to share their knowledge and the latest research information.

The Boehringer Ingelheim Warm-Up is the largest warm-up area at the venue, and it is located just behind the Stutteri Ask Stadium. It has three warm-up areas, all about 25 x 75 meters with one covered. Adjacent to this and the Vet Lounge, there is an equestrian cafe, where athletes and horse owners can follow the activities in the warm-up area.

About 1100 horses will be at the venue during the event, from August 6 to 14. With the many competition horses also comes a large number of veterinarians and other therapists from around the world.

Charlotte Fersløv, equine business manager for Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health Nordics, says the company believed that knowledge and knowledge sharing were fundamental to development. “For over 100 years, we at Boehringer Ingelheim have had a passion for horses. It is this passion that still drives us to develop new and innovative drugs for the benefit of both horses and veterinarians.

“Therefore we collaborate with veterinarians and organisations such as the FEI, with the aim of improving the health of horses.”

The Vet Lounge concept has been created in collaboration with Casper Cassøe and Jens Trabjerg, the Organiser of the World Championships in Herning. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and get updated knowledge, for example about what can be done for horses with arthritis, options for minimizing the risk of asthma in horses, and much more.

“It is very motivating for all of us who work on the equine team to contribute knowledge about what horses need, Fersløv said.

“Together with all the people and professionals around the horse, we can strengthen horse health, giving the horse and owner the most out of the time they have together.”
