The theme of the meeting is: Tendinopathies in horses, dogs and humans - lessons learned when crossing species boundaries Top speakers from the respective specialties will share their expertise and there will be ample opportunity to discuss issues common in these species but also differences in pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation.
