IS THIS EQUINE EMERGENCY RESCUE ‐ OR RODEO Gimenez R.M. 1 , Gimenez T. 2 and Baker J. 3 1 S. C. L. A. R. Team, Six 2472 Twenty Road, Pendleton SC 29670; 2 Medical Vet., Clemson University, Department of Animal & Veterinary Science, Clemson, SC 29634; 3 US Army Vet Corps, Bldg 239, Fort Myer, VA 22211 Equine Emergency Rescue techniques are available to veterinary practitioners and technicians to decrease iatrogenic injuries during rescues from overturned trailers, septic tanks, pools, and numerous other predicaments. Why are so many ‘rescues’ as seen in media outlets (TV, Newspaper, Internet) touted as being heroic, while even basic patient care protocols and safety for responders are ignored? An investigation of these publicized events has revealed that death or serious injury is not uncommon during and after the ‘rescue’. Technical emergency rescue of a frightened horse is dangerous, and should not be allowed to become a rodeo for the entertainment of onlookers. In contrast to emergencies involving humans, no standardized emergency response training or plan is yet widespread across the US. The purpose of the present training course is to introduce concepts applicable to safe and effective methods among emergency responders. Specialization
