Researchers from the University of Edinburgh’s Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies have launched a new study that focuses on equine foot health and care. The study, open to equine veterinary practitioners and professional farriers in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, seeks their input to help quantify key aspects of hoof knowledge, care and maintenance.

Topics included in the study: demographic information, hoof education and knowledge, perceptions of collaborative efforts among the surveyed populations, as well as questions on hoof mechanics, recommendations for hoof specific pathologies and/or injuries, and defining certain associated terms.

To access the survey, click here prior to July 15.

Participation in the study is voluntary, and all submissions will remain anonymous. No personal identifying data will be collected within the survey, and all information will be stored according to the Data Protection Act and GDPR principles.
