Alongside our first-class referral clinic for horses in need of specialist veterinary treatment, we also run research projects dedicated to fighting disease and injury in horses and ponies.
We are currently researching to find vaccines and effective diagnostic tests for various equine diseases and conditions, and to effectively arm equine vets across the UK with the knowledge they need to improve the health and welfare of these animals.
As a charity, we rely on generous donations from people like you to fund these important research projects. You can donate or fundraise to support our research, or find out how else you can support the Animal Health Trust.
