Foreword and Acknowledgements


For the first time, Equine Veterinary Journal is publishing some of the Clinical Research Abstracts presented at BEVA's Annual Congress. These abstracts contain succinct summaries of projects that are currently underway or recently completed and include a wide array of topics of interest and relevance to equine clinicians. By making the abstracts available online, BEVA hopes to provide both members and equine practitioners in general with up-to-date information that will help inform their clinical practice.

The abstracts have been compiled and edited by David Hicks and Sue Wright and I am grateful to David Mountford, BEVA's Scientific Programme Guardians and the reviewers of these clinical research abstracts: Ben Mayes, Keith Chandler, Fran Henson, Mark Bowen, Huw Griffiths, Luise Harrison, Tim Mair, Chris Pearce, Lesley Young, Deidre Carson, Michael Sadlier and Roly Owers.
