Due to an overwhelming positive response, Equine Guelph has opened registration for a second offering of their eWorkshop on colic prevention. Equine nutritionist Donald Kapper, PAS, of Beach City, Ohio, will join Katie Crossan, DVM, as a guest speaker in Equine Guelph's next Colic Prevention eWorkshop April 15 - 28.

In addition to funding from Alltech and Standardbred Canada, investment in the colic prevention program has been provided by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada through the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program.
