The 2009 World Equine Veterinary Association (WEVA) Congress was held in Guarujá, São Paulo, Brazil, which ranks among the top 10 countries with the highest population of equids. It boasted one of the largest gatherings in WEVA’s 24-year history with an attendance of 1,175. Its purpose is to present current veterinary and research topics in a professional setting outside North America and the United Kingdom and to raise money for intermediate meetings around the world.
Topics included <I>Rhodococcus equi</i> pneumonia, sleep disorders, seizures, guttural pouch problems, abortion, and lameness from tendon sheath issues.
The Applied Equine Research Award was given to Steeve Giguère, DVM, PhD, Dipl. ACVIM, professor of large animal medicine at the University of Georgia.
