aht vet inducted into equine hall of fame
In recognition of her contribution to hoof care in horses, the AHT’s Dr Sue Dyson has earned a place in the International Veterinarians Hall of Fame.
Established in 1997, the International Veterinarians Hall of Fame honours veterinarians who have contributed to the knowledge and recognition of proper hoof care for horses.
Vets are nominated either as practicing equine vets who work closely with farriers in the field, or as college and industry vets involved in teaching, research or other important aspects of equine veterinary and hoof care.
Sue Dyson, our head of equine clinical orthopaedics, is known for both her clinical work with horses and an extensive research record. Sue has published more than 190 papers on lameness and diagnostic imaging in scientific journals. She has also co-authored several veterinary textbooks as well as training and competing as a high-level rider in international events.
Anyone can nominate an equine vet for the award, which is sponsored by American Farriers Journal, but selection is completed by previous inductees into the International Veterinarians Hall of Fame. Awards are presented each year during the International Hoof-Care Summit in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Sue is delighted to have received this award and all at the AHT offer her our congratulations.
