Because equine veterinarians had requested more medical and research information on horses, EquiManagement started a column in each issue called ‘Keeping Up’ that reports on published equine research. To further that goal of providing more equine health and research information, EquiManagement dedicated the January-February 2018 issue of the magazine to reporting on the latest scientific information on various topics.
Following is an overview of this January-February 2018 issue.
