In addition to listing veterinarians, the new AAEP publication includes over 150 regulatory and state veterinarians from Canada and the United States. The directory also includes the AAEP's current position statements and guidelines on issues including equine welfare, medication policies, racing and sales issues, and veterinary practices, as well as defining humane and ethical treatment of horses.
