In May, TheHorse.com originally presented the Webinar, the industry's first Web-based live seminar, which features two practitioners and researchers who have spent their lives trying to solve the mystery of laminitis and help horses and their owners. Rustin Moore, DVM, MS, PhD, Dipl. ACVS, and Jim Belknap, DVM, MS, PhD, Dipl. ACVS, of The Ohio State University (OSU), hosted the live Webinar at the OSU veterinary school. The Webinar was sponsored by VetTech, AirShod, Equi Life, and Delta Hoof Care.
