Advancements in equine health and welfare focus of research update

Advancements in equine health and welfare were on the agenda at a research evening for equine practitioners at the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC) last week.

Researchers at OVC and the Ontario Agricultural College provided practitioners with updates on wide-ranging equine research at the University of Guelph, including studies in reproduction, cardiology, biomechanics, respiratory disease, stem cell discovery, infectious disease, behaviour and welfare, surgical innovations and advancements in pain management.

Dr. Malcolm Campbell, vice president research at the University of Guelph, with Dr. Judith Koenig, associate professor at OVC, welcomes guests to the Equine Research evening.

In welcoming guests, Dr. Malcolm Campbell, vice-president research at the University of Guelph, noted the important relationship with equine practitioners and the UofG and OVC. 

Lameness and colic were originally major themes in equine research, he noted, and while still important today researchers now consider a wide variety of areas, including stem cell research, infectious diseases, and surgical advancements.

The clinical and research programs at OVC are critical components in training the next generation of equine veterinarians, both at the DVM, graduate and post-graduate level, says Dr. Judith Koenig, an equine surgeon and associate professor at OVC.  

“This evening is an opportunity to not only update practitioners on the ground-breaking work underway at OVC, but also to thank them for their continued support and partnership with our clinical, teaching and research programs.”

The evening was sponsored by eQcell Therapies, Equine Guelph and the Ontario Veterinary College.
