The BHS and University of Nottingham Wounds project


The British Horse Society and the University of Nottingham are running a joint project to generate essential information on equine wound healing...
There is a lack of research evidence on the common types of wounds seen in the general horse population and on how different types of wounds heal, including which factors may delay or help wound healing. Once the results are all analysed, both organisations will be working together to develop new, freely-accessible educational resources to help with decision-making on wounds. The end goal is to help improve how we recognise and care for wounds and improve horse welfare.

Anyone who owns or cares for a horse is invited to take part. The closing date for the completion of the wound forms is Thursday 1 August 2019.
