Equine Health Care and Management

Horse health and care has been one of the Western College of Veterinary Medicine's (WCVM) research strengths since the mid-1970s, when the college created the Equine Health Research Fund (EHRF) and its research fellowship program. Over the years, WCVM-based researchers have conducted fundamental research in areas such as infectious diseases, nutrition, reproduction, orthopedic surgery, behaviour, locomotion, wound healing, immune responses and vaccine development.
