On Sept. 15 at 6:30 p.m., Emilie Setlakwe, DVM, MSc, Dipl. ACVIM, will present “A Cough, a Wheeze, Could it be Heaves?” at Tryon Equine Hospital in Columbus, North Carolina.

During her lecture, Setlakwe will discuss recurrent airway obstruction (RAO, or heaves), a condition that can limit a horse’s performance and significantly decrease quality of life. She will address clinical signs of disease, diagnostic methods, treatment and management options, preventing relapse, prognosis, the differences between RAO and inflammatory airway disease and their possible relationship, and some of the latest research findings.

Setlakwe is a board-certified internist who recently joined the Tryon Equine team in August 2015, following completion of a three-year internal medicine residency at the University of Pennsylvania’s New Bolton Center. Prior to that, she performed a large animal internship in medicine and surgery at the University of Guelph and obtained a Master’s degree from the University of Montreal in Clinical Sciences. The subject of her research was respiratory disease in horses, most specifically looking at RAO in horses and its similarities with human asthma.
