Study looks at calming equine pheromone
HORSE owners could soon be offered a new treatment for the management of equine stereotypies.  
The pharmaceutical manufacturer, CEVA Animal Health, is working in partnership with the University of Nottingham's Veterinary School to carry out an initial study into a calming equine pheromone.  
Owners of horses that display any type of stereotypical behaviour such as crib biting, weaving or box walking are being asked to complete an online survey about their horse, management regimes and their perception of pheromone treatments.

Professor is recognised for Safer Horse Rescues role
PROFESSOR Josh Slater has been presented with the British Equine Veterinary Association Welfare Award 2009.  
The award, which was introduced by BEVA in conjunction with The Blue Cross nine years ago, is a formal recognition of significant contributions made by veterinary surgeons to equine welfare.  
Professor Slater was given the award by Kerstin Alford, director of equine welfare at The Blue Cross, for his role in developing the Emergency Services Protocol - now known as Safer Horse Rescues.
