The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) has announced that it is extending its pasture-associated equine laminitis research project into 2013, in hopes of collecting more cases from the field.
Known as The Laminitis Research Project, data submitted by AAEP-member practitioners and horse owners will be collated and analyzed to reveal new information to help more veterinarians with diagnosis, treatment and prevention of laminitis.
