Building on its longstanding commitment to supporting exceptional veterinary students, Merck Animal Health, in partnership with the AAEP Foundation, will award five $5,000 scholarships in 2018 to second- and third-year veterinary students dedicated to careers in equine practice. Created in 2015, the scholarship program is open to AAEP student members who are active within any of the AAEP’s 39 student chapters at veterinary colleges across the U.S., Canada, Europe and the Caribbean.
Current and aspiring equine practitioners can participate in lectures and hands-on labs covering diverse areas of equine medicine by attending one of four continuing education events sponsored by the American Association of Equine Practitioners in 2018.
The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) has published updated biosecurity guidelines to minimize the occurrence and mitigate the spread of potential disease outbreaks. The downloadable PDF file incorporates comprehensive information and step-by-step protocols in three distinct areas: identification of key personnel, important contacts and reference materials; routine biosecurity protocol; and outbreak response.
