New AAEP Web Site Delivers More Equine-Health Resources for Veterinarians and Horse Owners

American Association of Equine Practitioners


Guided by its mission to improve the health and welfare of the horse, the American Association of Equine Practitioners has relaunched its Web site, www.aaep.org, with new educational tools for veterinarians and the addition of equine-health resources for horse owners. The AAEP's site formerly dedicated to equine health for the non-veterinarian - myHorseMatters.com - is now part of aaep.org. Veterinarians and horse owners can conveniently access customized equine health articles and tools in the same location.

The AAEP site will continue to offer its popular online resource for horse owners, "Ask the Vet." Each month an AAEP-member veterinarian answers questions from horse owners on a specific topic. During the month of March, Dr. Danielle Bercier from Baldwin Animal Clinic in Summerdale, Ala., discusses equine ophthalmology.

In addition to veterinarians and horse owners, aaep.org offers resources customized for veterinary students, equine industry groups and the media. Health articles that are available for reprint in industry media can be downloaded from the "News Room" on the new site.

All resources on aaep.org have been developed by veterinarians and animal health specialists. For more information, please contact, Sally J. Baker, AAEP director of marketing and public relations, at sbaker@aaep.org or (859) 233-0147.

The American Association of Equine Practitioners, headquartered in Lexington, Ky., was founded in 1954 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the health and welfare of the horse. Currently, the AAEP reaches more than 5 million horse owners through its nearly 9,000 members worldwide and is actively involved in ethics issues, practice management, research and continuing education in the equine veterinary profession and horse industry.
