College announces partnership with Hoof Beats

Each month, an equine faculty member will offer expertise on a new topic

The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine's Galbreath Equine Center is proud to announce a new partnership with Hoof Beats magazine. Each month, an article in the harness racing magazine will feature an equine faculty member at the university who will discuss a topic relating to equine care.  

The June issue features an interview with Dr. James Belknap, an associate professor in the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences and an expert on laminitis.

Dr. Belknap is also featured in two videos discussing various aspects of laminitis. In part one of the video he discusses how to diagnose laminitis. In part two he discusses the treatment and care of the disease.
