Helping horses through research
Laminitis remains one of the most frustrating medical mysteries for equine veterinarians. The Foundation is leading the charge against laminitis through an extended series of research studies that with the help of AAEP-member practitioners and horse owners will reveal new information to help more veterinarians with diagnosis, treatment and prevention of laminitis.
The Foundation has designated exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage (EIPH) research as a fundraising priority. EIPH refers to the presence of blood in the airways of a horse’s lung during exercise. The condition is commonly reported in racehorses but can occur in any horse during strenuous exercise. As part of its strategic focus on EIPH research, the AAEP Foundation will continue to collaborate with researchers and organizations focused on EIPH.
Research Workshops and Symposiums
The Foundation actively supports meetings covering research topics important to the equine community. We are proud to have brought together world leaders in horse health at the following research meetings and to provide results of those meetings.
