Ask The Vet
Throughout the year, some topics generate more questions than others. Our veterinary experts answer as many questions as possible based on their busy schedules. The AAEP welcomes all of your questions, but recommends that your equine veterinarian be your primary healthcare resource.
Please Note: We can only answer questions for the current month's topic. QUESTIONS POSED THAT ARE IRRELEVANT TO THE MONTH'S TOPIC, WILL NOT BE ANSWERED.
The opinions and answers expressed by each attending veterinarian during the "Ask the Vet" forum are solely their views and opinions based on their practice and not those of the AAEP, and should not be used as substitution for diagnosis from your local equine veterinarian.
If your horse is currently experiencing a medical emergency (i.e. colic, eye trauma, severe laceration, dystocia, etc.), contact your equine veterinarian immediately for medical attention!
The weather is perfect, trail rides are beginning and so is the show season. Have you vaccinated your horse(s) yet? Pose your immunization/vaccine questions to our month's expert, Dr. Christina Dayton-Wall during the month of May.
