At Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc., we're furthering our commitment to research efforts to ensure that we continue to learn more about equine diseases.

Scientists, researchers, practicing veterinarians, animal health companies and horse owners have long been dedicated to improving the health of the horse. Yet the need for more knowledge in regards to disease prevention, lameness and general wellness still exists.
