AAEP 2012 — Looking Ahead

As we were driving home last week from Anaheim, Calif., I laid out my writing schedule for the next month to my husband. When I got to, “And I need to write one more blog post next week to summarize the convention,” he immediately said, “So, is this going to be about where you think equine medicine is heading?”

He was right. I had been fretting over how to summarize the volumes of information from the conference into one pithy post of things that I haven’t already covered in this blog. I was looking back. My husband, with his eyes on the road rather than a laptop screen, was looking forward.

So, let’s take a look into my crystal ball. Never mind the cracks–it’s just a little fractured from years of trying to figure out prognoses for owners without all of the data. The future is cloudy … the mists are parting … I see a banjo …

The 2013 Convention of the AAEP will be held in Nashville, Tenn. I have no idea what the program will contain, but I might take some guesses about what shifts we may see in equine medicine over the next few years based on some of the highlights from this year.
