|`The goal of this program (is) to promote the little-known fact that biomedical research involving lab animals plays a key role in advancing veterinary medicine as well as human medicine,` says FBR President Frankie L. Trull.
`America`s horses, including equine athletes, can live longer, healthier lives thanks to recent, remarkable developments in veterinary medicine,` says AAEP Past President Larry R. Bramlage, DVM. `The discovery and development of new equine vaccinations and infertility treatments, medications for ulcers and seizures, as well as orthopedic surgical techniques and innovations in post-surgical care, are just a few of the ingenious innovations for equine health that were developed as a direct result of biomedical research conducted with animals in the laboratory.`
The AAEP Foundation, American Association for Laboratory Animal Science Foundation, Merial and Pfizer Animal Health provide funding for the program.
