Members of the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) will present the latest equine health information during Equine Affaire, to be held April 6-9 at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio. Veterinarians understand that good equine health begins at home with proper daily care, and Equine Affaire offers owners the opportunity to learn more about how to best care for their horses.

            A variety of veterinary topics will be featured, including treatments for Cushing’s disease, understanding tying-up, managing horses with heaves, low carbohydrate diets, evaluating back pain and massage therapy. Laura Gallatin, DVM; Michael Schmall, DVM; Steve Reed, DVM; Shannon Pratt, Ph.D.; Catherine Kohn, VMD; and Susan Wilcox, DVM are among the veterinary and horse-health experts who will be speaking at the event.

            Designed to connect horse enthusiasts and the people and businesses that serve them, Equine Affaire also will host breed showcases, dozens of clinics and a trade show with hundreds of vendors. Attendees can visit the AAEP booth (#414 in the Bricker Building) for additional horse-health information and giveaways.
