Equine Research Fund
College of Veterinary Medicine
Thank you for your interest and support of the University of Florida's College of Veterinary Medicine. The University of Florida is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art medical and surgical care for your horse, teaching the future veterinarians of our state, and doing research with the goals of advancing equine wellness in our state and throughout the world.
Equine research at UF is conducted under strict federal and university regulations to ensure the most humane care and welfare of all of our horses. Many of our horses live here for several years and participate in non-invasive studies before they are adopted out or sold to loving homes. All of our horses are maintained on a routine preventative health care program and live on pastures with ample shelter. We sincerely appreciate the essential role of our horses and they are provided exceptional attention and care by all of our staff.
Equine research is critical for new advances in diagnosis and treatment of diseases that can affect horses, as well as other animals and sometimes even people. When you support the University of Florida's Equine Research Program, you are a contributor to the health and wellness of the horse.
